Man I Was Bumbed!

I guess if I were only interested in celiac (wheat, rye and barley), I would have read the first post in this thread and, seeing it was about corn, not read any farther. But that's just me.

 

Anyway, I'm glad for you that you have no further intolerances. :)

 

and....what I would give to "only" have celiac without "additional intolerances" or other AI diseases and complications.

(which seems to be more the norm than the minority around here)

I completely agree with you about me making any statements concerning what a corn intolerant person may eat. That's not my area of expertise, as it were. And I apologize. I wouldn't have even read that post if it had been in a forum thread devoted to "other insensitivities/intolerances" etc. Corn intolerance is not Celiac Disease. Many believe they are soy, casien/dairy, corn, cheese intolerant. And I'm probably leaving some others out here. It's very unfortunate, and I'm not unsympathetic of them. I just don't have the time and energy to follow everything. I'd rather just focus on Celiac Disease. You know, wheat, barely, and rye.

 

I'm guessing, and I'll defer to you on this, that as with Celiacs, there's a wide range in degree of corn intolerance. Some Celiacs, I'd say most, can eat foods that don't contain any listed gluten ingredients. And others are so sensitive that they must take exteme measures to avoid any possible exposure, no matter how infinitesimally small and unlikely that may be.  

 

Because of my ignorance of corn intolerance, I took one look at Velveeta's ingredients and didn't see any obvious corn.  And then when I looked up the three were discussing, I still didn't see any actual corn in the finished products. Just because a culture is grown on a medium, doesn't necessarily mean there's any of that medium left in the finished product. For instance, from those same sources, it states that even when Maltodextrin is derived from wheat, no wheat protein is left in the finished product. 

 

But I digress from the business at hand. And that's me getting out of the corn business. 

 

Again, please accept my sincere apologies. I promise to butt out of any corn business from now on.

 

best regards, larry mac 

Certainly did not mean to cause a ruckus, I think this is all a learning experience to us all. I do have Celiac, I do have corn intolerance , I did not say hubbs used Velveeta he used some off the wall brand. I am so sorry If I offended anyone by posting this. Will try and stay on topic of Celiac.

But hon, you ARE on topic. You did not offend anyone.

Do not let one person's comment cause you to feel as if you did something wrong.

If the moderators of the board did not move it out of the coping section, then we feel it's a coping issue.

You're still new at this and you were telling us how you coped with yet another new hurdle.

Am I right?

 

Please, do not give it another thought!

You got supportive replies and that's the whole point.

 

All's well that ends well. ;)

OK :) To stay on topic. I will now say being corn intolerant and Celiac and Lactose intolerant. I am considering the Paleo diet. I call them Doits :)Not Diets.  I am so tired of looking at labels and trying to figure out what is Corn and what is not.I am no scientist.  I think it will be easier for me to just not eat processed. I think all I have to give up besides processed is Rice & Potatoes , Ohhh and Beans ...I had a beginners Paleo book need to look it up. Beans and Rice <- my fav! Soooo hmmm .... Maby Monday will be my day? Eat the rest of the rice I cooked yesterday, maby have Beans and Rice for the last time :) but I have got to do something. Maby this is the way to go? This processed cheeses and Processed Cream of soups and proccessed chips and processed processed processed.... Sick of reading labels and having reactions. I know we read it here all the time. Sick and tired of being sick and tired! I have got to do something. This will be my next thing. 

 

TY IrishHeart I will try and keep that in mind. Cannot imagine being miss DX'd for 25 years!

Wendy,

 

Why not consider just dropping all processed foods for now.  You don't know that rice and beans are a problem for you.  Many of us can't eat a lot of processed foods. I get some cookies once in a blue moon but I try to keep it all one ingredient food choices.  This is much easier to do than cutting out items that you don't know if you have a problem with or not.  It is also much healthier. Do this for a good 2 months and see how you do.  You can address a possible additional intolerance at that point if your still having problems.  I know others may say to limit everything now and add back in but the corn in processed food seems to be your problem.

TY Colleen, 

 That may be easier than going on Paleo, And for 2 months sure is doable! I do know corn is a problem for me , there is no question about that. I was cooking last night and was reading ingredients and looked up and sure enuf something was corn derived so I ended out just having Chicken. Thats when it hit me about the processed stuff. For some reason it just struck me as Paleo. But I guess you have a good point. I LOve Beans and Rice :) I wouldn't have to give them up :) 2 months thats a deal! See what happens. If I am still suffering from "Something" then I will take rice away. Only because I eat more rice than beans and potatoes. for 2 months. If still problems I will cut out Potatoes. But I have a feeling just cutting out Processed will do ALOT! Thanks!

I agree with Colleen. Before you go all caveman, ditch anything from a package. Use my 5 ingredient rule: If the label has more than 5 ingredients (and I cannot pronounce half of them and even my chemist hub shakes his head and makes that face like "er, that's not food, that's just chemicals")  LOL

then, I don't eat them 

 

And for what it's worth, I have been on a primal diet for 7 weeks,....it's not horrid, but let's just say....... I still drink vodka.  :lol: 

 

Keep your rice and beans if you can!  ;)

I agree with Colleen and Irish....ditch everything processed before removing other foods.

Wendy,

 

Glad to hear you are giving it a shot.  You have learned so much already and the corn intolerance is very difficult to deal with (just ask Barty) and so many processed foods have corn deriviitives.  I'm not eating anything processed right now either (different reason) so we can do this together  :)

Yeah, I'm still eating some processed foods. I went without them for a long time and when I finally found gluten-free/corn-free ice cream and gluten-free/corn-free potato chips, I jumped on them.

 

As a matter of fact, I found a new (to me) brand of potato chips the other day. The health food store was out of Kettle Brand but they had Boulder Canyon Olive Oil chips. Now, I love Kettle Brand but they are incredibly greasy. I mean if you tip the empty bag the greas will actually drip out! These Boulder Canyon chips are not as greasy and even if they were, we all know olive oil is good for us. So yeah, I'm still getting the salt and the calories, but I don't feel quite so guilty. And they are yummy. :)

It's a deal Colleen :) 

 

Bartful I do have some chips I like , They are "Better Made" made with cotton seed oil/ Palm oil and sea salt. I will miss them for a while but Ohhh well! I will get over it for two months. At least it's not in the middle of summer where there are partys all the time. This is a good time to do this.

Yesss the five ingredient rule looks like something I can do! I had a week of rehearsals, performances and late nights which meant living mostly on the only packet of crisps in the vending machine I knew were gluten-free. And now I have flu for the first time in five months. I think my body would appreciate the five ingredient rule...

    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)
