I get heartburn every time I eat carb foods (pasta, breads, oatmeal etc). Is this gluten related? I don't experience other gluten allergy symptoms.
Possible: Try gluten-free oat to see if causes the same symptoms. Even though you may not have the full-blown symptoms,and heart burn is not the usual symptoms in gluten intolerance, it cannot be totally ruled out. Nonetheless it would be a good idea for you to consult a doctor regarding these symptoms. ...Read more
Depends: Many of the commonly available oat products are milled at the same facilities that mill wheat. If so, trace amounts of wheat can contaminate the oats and result in a sensitivity reaction. If you examine the consumer label of these products you may be able to find one that is milled on separate equipment and safe to consume. ...Read more
Yes, but....: Oatmeal is a very different grain than wheat is and it is rare that a person is allergic to both. However, many places that make cereals use the same equipment to process the oats as they do wheat, so cross contamination with small amounts of wheat can occur. Read label of your oatmeal - it will usually list if prepared in a facility where wheat exposure/contamination may occur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Getting allergy testing done next week. Since coming off antihistamines I've noticed how extreeeemely itchy my scalp/body is. Using Aveeno (oatmeal) is helping.
Dry skin: If the allergy skin testing is solely for itching without any nasal , eye. or respiratory symptoms, I believe that the yield is quite low. Your response to Aveeno suggests that dry skin is likely the cause and would recommend that you apply the lotion <3 minutes after bathing (avoid scented soap as well) to see if this helps. ...Read more
Are diarrhea and vomiting symptoms of malabsorption? If so, how much will the symptoms last? I believe that my baby doesn't tolerate oatmeal...
Diarrhea: Malabsorption is usually diarrhea. Malabsorption usually means poor weight gain and sick infants. If this is so please go see your pediatrician or GI specialist. If otherwise growing the V&D could be formula intolerance to milk or perhaps soy. Try an elemental formula like nutramagen or alimentum. If you think oatmeal then stop and start it later to see if change helps. See your dr too ...Read more
6'3" 155 lb non fasting glucose 62 mg/ dl. Ate meal oatmeal fruit peanut butter < 1 hour before. Doc surpised i didn't have symptoms. Why low level?
Maybe not: Oats and oatmeal are listed as a gluten-containing grain. More recent reports say that oats don't have the gluten proteins but have small amounts of another protein that may cause reactions in some celiac disease patients. Sometimes the same equipment that processes oats also processes wheat, so there can be traces of gluten from the wheat getting into the oats. So, "pure" oats probably are ok. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sure R Side effects: I find that one of the most troublesome and consistent side effects following a bowl of good piping hot, steaming, delicious oatmeal together with dried fruit toppings, blueberries, and UNprocessed (but pasteurized) honey, using non fat steamed milk is that I want at least 1 more bowl...and if there's time....I want another one....especially now the weather is getting a little cooler. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
YES: Oatmeal is a healthy whole-grain food it's fine to have a little sweetener to make it taste better. Some people think honey is more healthy than sugar or brown sugar because it's a sweetener that's been part of humans' diet for > 30, 000 years. Contrast this with refined sugar being around for < 5000 years. Not sure there's science to support honey v sugar, but whole grain oatmeal is great! ...Read more
Yes: It is ok to eat many things before running, but usually simple carbohydrates are best. Also, a small-to-moderate size meal, so as to not upset your stomach.
