Corn Related To Gluten As Well?!
0

10 posts in this topic

I seen this on the news awhile ago but I came across the website. I myself can tolerate corn, or high fructose corn syrup. Nor can I tolerate beans very well. I thought this was interesting http://www.(Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned)/gluten-free-society-blog/new-research-will-demand-an-evolution-in-the-gluten-free-diet-definitions/

Anyone else have an issue with corn

Oh... It won't let me post the whole Thing. But I guess research has supposedly found corn gluten to have similar effects and damages in people with celiac. Like I said I have found myself to be intolerant to any form of corn and beans

They also included reactions to certain beans. Now their questioning the directions and definition of a true gluten free diet. Any thoughts on the subject?

I have always had a problem with corn - bloated, burning diarrhea, pain in my abdomen - and at first my doctor thought I had IBS, but after asking me some other questions, she said she wanted to test me for Celiac. I was shocked to find out that I do have Celiac. I haven't touched corn since... Much happier!!!

There are many of us who have problems with corn, too. The corn 'gluten' is different from that in wheat, barley and rye and most celiacs can eat it without problem, but for many of us it is a separate intolerance we also have. All grain plants have storage proteins that work in the same way as gluten and it is possible to react to them also -- it is just not the same reaction as to the gluten in wheat, rye and barley. There is also a protein known as a lectin in all these grains and pseudo-grains like millet, quinoa, amaranth, and some of us are lectin-reactive also.

I knew corn made me bloat before I knew about gluten. Now, I also react to rice. I agree with the infomation found on that website, if it is the same one that has been banned, that I tried to post about. Perhaps not all need to be that strict... but for me it works! I am still eating beans, but eyeing the reactions cautiously. The people associated with that website have been really generous with me offering free videos and information on occassion.

I don't have any issue with corn at all, thank goodness!

I am unsure if I have Celiac specifically, but I am allergic to corn as well as having a gluten free diet.

How can you tell if your body is just taking a long time to heal or if you need to eliminate other foods? I made some chicken last night coated in corn starch (very good - from gluten-free pinterest board), pan fried in coconut oil and my daughter has been "glutened" since about an hour after we ate it. She's feeling terrible and so am I for not knowing how to care for her. I wonder if the corn starch is something we should avoid??

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
