I have one of the genes for Celiac Disease and am Gluten Sensitive. I also cannot eat oats. I started getting symptoms from oats long before any hint of problems with gluten. Apparently, one of the Celiac genes can have a separate but equally severe reaction specifically to some protein in oats. It's possible also to be allergic to oats and not other grains, so it may not even be a gluten issue.
I hope this helps - take care,
wow...that is a great piece of info. i havent read that anywhere yet. thanks. do you happen to know where i could find out more info about
that. do you know of any sites that talk in detail about
the celiac gene(s)? so am i understanding you correctly that you are sensitive to gluten (eg wheat, rye, barley) but even more sensitive to oats? what symptoms do you get from oats?
thanks again :)
thanks :) i had thought of that as a possibility. i will check out the website.
thanks to you too. it is good to know there are others with oat allergy and not grains in general. what symptoms do you get?
