Tecfidera and oats……..

Hi and happy new year everyone.

Just a quick question for all of you “Teccys” out there. How many of you are OK with eating oats in food in general?

I only ask as about eighteen months ago I started to get abdominal cramping after eating oats and have had to switch to a gluten free variety if I want to eat them for breakfast, etc. I have never had a problem before starting Tecfidera (have been on it about 3 years now) and was wondering if anyone else noticed anything similar with oats or any other foods.

Thanks

@ruggermad (great mane, btw),

I eat 40-50g raw oats each day in my morning smoothie. No apparent change when this is disrupted by holidays etc.

V. occasionally I’ll have porridge that I try to make with skimmed milk instead of water.

Hope that helps, fwiw.

Best,

Dominic

Hey @ruggermad, never had problems with daily muesli. Good that you’ve found an alternative though…..

@ruggermad , it seems you can become gluten-intolerant at any age.

Do you have a problem with gluten in other things, e.g. bread?

Been on Tecfidera for a year. I eat instant porridge in the winter when it’s cold, had a sister who was a bad celiac, couldn’t eat bread, pasta, etc., but she could eat oats, but again everyone is different no matter what the disease. Experienration is the only way to go for you really. Good luck, and a happy new year.🤞🥊😍

@dominics thanks for the “name love” – lol

@stumbler no can’t say that anything else causes me an issue just the oats. Noticed it shortly after starting on the TEC

Thanks for all the comments. As it’s just me I feel like an oat freak now……… lol

Hi @ruggermad
I am coming to the end of my first week of the 120 mg Tecfidera and I have porridge every morning, no noticeable issues with me 🙂
Happy new year btw.
