Trivia Question of the Month

QUESTION: Can pure, uncontaminated oats cause intestinal damage in patients with celiac disease?

ANSWER: No, pure, uncontaminated oats have not been shown to cause intestinal damage in patients. However, in a small portion of people with celiac disease, oats can cause an inflammatory reaction. A study from 2015 found that 8% of the sample size had a reaction to pure, uncontaminated oats—but still no intestinal damage. 

If you are concerned about oats, talk with your doctor or dietitian. If you’d like to learn more about research on oats and celiac disease, check out a replay of our March 2024 Town Hall with Dr. Jason Tye-Din.

Voices of Celiac: Rachel’s StoryRachel standing at the Empire State Building

I feel isolated at times. Some people do not understand celiac is more than just ‘gluten-free food’ on a menu. I’ve had friends say I’m too much and drop me because they don’t want to deal with it. I have servers who don’t believe me or take it seriously.

I have some lovely friends who will go out of their way to ensure I can eat. When I traveled to New York in 2023, they would walk the extra 15 minutes out of our way with me so I could eat safely. They never once complained and I thank them for that.”
