- This study shows the safety of adding oats to the
gluten-free diet of 10 patients with coeliac disease.
Seven of the patients have continued to take the same
quantity of oats for more than 12 months without adverse
effect. These findings are in agreement with a recently
published study.2 In that study, however, the authors
stated that they excluded coeliac patients with
"severe" disease. No such policy was adopted in
our study, and two of our patients were subsequently
shown to be exquisitely sensitive when given a gluten
micro-challenge. A third patient was also shown to be
very sensitive to trace quantities of gluten taken

symptoms begin and the disease is diagnosed is usually
only 2 to 3 weeks. In the United States, the time between
