47 Facts About Gluten You Need to Know

Alright, I can hear you saying – “47 facts about gluten!  Come on Dr. Osborne.  There is no way that all of this can be true!  My doctor never talked about any of these things!”  Part of the reason this information is not main stream is because most doctors don’t go this deep.  Their training on gluten is limited to a small segment about celiac disease.  It is not common in medical schools for nutrition or non celiac gluten sensitivity to be discussed in any great detail.

It is the researchers (PhD’s) who help us understand the science behind this intricate topic.  And so I went to the research.  I didn’t want you to go another day without having this information, because frankly, it could save your life… it could also save the life of someone you love.  That is exactly why I put in the research links for you to follow.  So if you are a gluten skeptic, or, if you on a science nerd and need to see the research, feel free to follow the links in the list below to learn more.

    I had begun the process of becoming gluten-free mAnY years before I found Dr Osborne on YouTube. Thanks to finding Dr Osborne I found out about the other kinds of gluten’s found in grained other than wheate, oats, Bali and Rye. Since I have become grain free my life has been a lot better. I was diagnosed when I was 12 with what they called at the time and ulcerated stomach. I have since learnt that that really meant I had a leaky gut. For many years I have had extreme health issues but since I have become grain free those issues have completely subsided. Unfortunately just recently I was sold some multi vitamin tablets by a chemist who knew that I was gluten Allergic. By that I mean the moment I have gluten within 20 minutes I am almost paralysed lying in bed unable to move for over a day. I unknowingly kept taking the tablets of course making things worse every day. I finally started to work things out but only just in time. I felt that I was losing my brain as well as everything else. Luckily I have now got multivitamin tablets that do not contain Gluten from any grains. What I am trying to say is please, always be so very careful to read the labels on everything that you buy even if you have bought it before and it has been gluten-free in the past. Because every time you have something with some gluten in it, whether it be once or days and days on end, it is doing incredible damage to your whole body.
    Thank you Dr Osborne for this very important List of facts on gluten. The efforts that you make it to educate us all a very very very much appreciated.

    Happy 47th. I remember well being 47 as it was when I did my OE. I have had glue ear for the last 7 years and have had 3 grommets with no improvement. I have to wonder if this is to do with gluten. I’ve only just started looking at how gluten affects us. Keep up the good work.

    I was diagnosed with celiac 2014. I have not knowingly ate anything with gluten in it since then. Now that I read this article I’m not so sure. I know that I now have a problem with my sugar and the strange thing is my sugar is always high in the morning when I first get up but drops during the day. I had know idea that gluten might be the reason. I eat a lot of rice because I was told it was a good gluten free meal. I’m nearly starving my self to death because of trying to eat gluten free.i hated reading your list since I have quite a few things in this list. Thank you for caring enough about our disease to let us know what our own Dr. has never been able to tell us. Looking forward to reading more of your articles.

    What about “Udi’s” brand? They have a GF oat cereal and as far as I know it is “Certified gluten free.” Also what about “Red Mill” products that are also certified GF? Are oats safe to eat if they are in theory “certified” GF or is it a lie?
