Matthew, it could be a reaction to the oatmeal itself - the gluten-like moiety in the oats - or it could be the oats are contamined with 'wheat' in the fields, or the shipping or the storage  problem. Try some oats from www.glutenfreeoats.com - I think that's the site. My husband can have oatmeal from that company with no problems and I make him cookies out of those oats all the time. It's worth a try.

Also remember that some with celiac cross-react to casein, the major protein in diary. Have you had that checked out?

Matthew, if the rice is fortified (vitamins added) there can be a reaction. The fortification process is accomplished using either a corn or gluten 'slurry.' My husband has experienced a reaction from fortified rice, unfortunately. We buy a 'sushi' rice - organic, non-fortified from Koda Farms. I believe all rice by law - except for sushi rice - has to be fortified. Try contacting Koda Farms and finding out where their sushi rice is sold.

Thanks for your note. Went to doc today and said my blood work came back normal. Not sure where to go from here. Guess I'll just wait and see what happens :-) Thanks again.

Just read a response to a Post where you mentioned a drug called zelnorm - no, it is not available in Australia.  Thanks anyway, I hope you are well and surviving the fructose/sucrose free diets. (??)

You deserve a big bear hug!

Hey there from 'downunder' - try and remember to relax, the things you are stressing about NOW will seem so irrelevant in 6/12 months time and you will think - Why did I waste all that time and energy stressing about certain things.  Hate to say it but ~ What will be will be !!!  What a about meditation???  I know I have been my own worst enemy and still can be but you have to learn to relax!!!!  Does not help with the stomach issues either.
Take Care ~ Savannah

YES!! I am finally feeling better. After a bad reaction with the Reglan (thankfully) the on-call doc put me on phenergren (speeling stinks), and I nearly instantly felt better. However I am still concerned as this has happened more than once. I haven't been able to get to the GI doc yet, but I will. Thank you so much!

Tomorrow I meet with my gastro and I will find out more.... I'm not a drinker so it cant be that.  I've had this problem for a while now. I'm just glad they have something in the blood work and can go from there.  

Again thanks

Hi, I would go to another GI because most of them should have the breath test in their office.  My SIBO was nothing compared to the c.diff colitis I got for the antibiotics I was taking for SIBO.  I was in the hospital for 5 days!  I am a healthy 32 year old!  Any way, I am still taking probiotics (VSL#3) and I just started Align two days ago.  What are you taking?
