No harm from five year ingestion of oats in celiac disease

Oats do contain some gluten which has always prompted the recommendation to stay away from oats in patients with celiac disease. I have always found these tough recommendations and have allowed patients to eat oat on an elimination diet. I am glad that current research seems to support this concept. Given how prevalent gluten insensivity is and how hard it is to eliminate just wheat without any thought to also eliminating oats, this finding will make life a little easier on some patients.
