Wheat and oat glutens are different, but commercial brands of oats are considered "contaminated" by the growing, harvesting and storage processes. If you google gluten free oats, you'll find sources. It was from one of those sources that I learned that if you're newly diagnosed even gf oats can still be hard on your system. They suggested waiting a year.
Personally, I did that: I hate 1/2 c oatmeal for breakfast and made and had 2 oatmeal cookies (recipe on their product) and couldn't handle it. I think I overdid it. Next time, I'd just do it differently and eat only 1/4 c and work my way up. Also, it could have been the sugar as I wasn't used to that either.
Everyone's toleration level is different ... good luck with it! It'll add a whole new dimension to your diet.
