xxndnromeoxx added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsWhere Do I Get Food Sensitivity Testing Done?I suspect that I am sensitive to gluten. One reason why I know is due to constipation and bloating. I cannot tolerate it, every time I eat wheat, I get extremely constipated. When I stop, it goes back to normal. Another reason is my skin, I flare up badly when I eat wheat, and it goes down a week later. But right now it's just a "suspicion" but I do not know where to go to get tested. I also want to get tested for all foods, but at the same time am scared that I will be paying more than I should.
So that is why I ask here where exactly do I need to go to get tested. Is there a specific doctor who can do it? Naturopath? Or is it just a regular doctor? I am not sure but really need to know.
I reside in Houston, so if there are any here that you know of please do let me know, I am dying to find out and thought this was the best place to ask.
Thank you so much!

xxndnromeoxx added a topic in Gluten-Free Ingredients & Food Labeling IssuesIs Corn Safe?Hello there, sorry I am new here, but I have seen conflicting views on corn and just do not know what to believe in for sure.
"Though corn (maize) is one of those grains that many people -- not just celiacs -- may be allergic to, it is not a grain that is thought to cause damage to the villi in celiacs. It is tolerated by most celiacs."
If this is bad for you, how can it be safe?
I tried searching to find the answer, but was not completely conclusive. I hope you all may help Thank you for your time, I really appreciate this so much!
