Hi everyone. Firstly I’d like to thank hivesguy/ Ben for the site- it’s been a really useful and uplifting resource.
So, I would say I’m nearer to cured than ever before. My diet alterations, running exercises, and alternating between one 5mg Levocetirizine and one 180mg Fexofenadine every other day is the closest I’ve got to being free of the condition.
So my diet is in summary: low oil/ salt, zero gluten, zero dairy, zero eggs, and is mainly whole foods (no preservatives / flavouring).
However, since going gluten free and have always enjoyed gluten free oats in cereals and porridge and all other gluten free products with oats. So my diet has never been grain free.
My question to anyone with experience: Do you think it’s worth going “grain free” and excluding oats too, in an attempt to push the last bit of this horrible condition out of my life?
I know avenin (protein in oats) is very similar to gluten (protein in wheat, barley and rye), and I’ve heard some coeliacs still react to oats. What are your thoughts? Thanks a lot.
