The only one that says corn free is the zinc. I haven't even taken that yet. I am sicker today than yesterday. I will stop all vitamins till I get better, I can't handle another day like today.

I thought i"d show up today with good news for a change.
I feel much better today not well yet, but much, much, better!
I called vitacost an told them what happened, they said send the vitamins back for a full refund.
I"ll get the test done next tuesday an then i"ll know exactly what i need an the right doses.
If it was corn that caused this problem, maby that will be the last piece to my puzzle!!!
Corn would explane why i got so sick trying gluten-free foods, example kraft original bbq sause. 1/2 teaspoon is all it takes. How about some more good news? I didn"t have to take any miralax this week :D And I got plenty of sleep. B) Guess i was tired of the regular ole sick an just needed a variety.

Hi Dave,

It is easy to test if the corn is the problem. No need to guess. Just eat some corn meal mush every day for a few days. Plain polenta is easy to find and would work well for a test. If it's a problem you will know shortly. How about the nightshades? Have you dropped the idea of eliminating them?

I appericate your idea, but i"m heading a differant direction. How about i stop taking the multi for him 50+ that i been on for 270 days an see if i get better. :D
I got very sick after eating 6 hushpuppies back in nov 2010, i did eat a few fritos about a year ago but seemed any more than 6 chips an i would get sick, so i gave those up also. I never thought about the multi vitimans i take having corn in them. duh
I haven"t gave up the idea of nightshade free but i haven"t started yet either. It"s going to be thanksgiving soon an those sweet potatoes will be on sale for 29 cent a lbs, good time to stock up!!!!!!!!! I did give up butter, so now i"m gluten, dairy, soy, and corn free.

Time for a coconut, banana, honey smoothie and some enjoy life chocolate chips to celebrate!!!!!

Rosetapper23 and ravenwoodglass, that sounds awful - I'm glad you've identified the problem and can remove it successfully!

I think it's important, though, that people who don't have to exclude any specific vitamin or nutrient or mineral not do so. In an effort to eat whole foods and generally healthfully, if we shop only or primarily at local farmer's markets we're not likely to consume enough of a variety of vitamins and minerals (down here in Florida, for instance, many fruits and "winter" vegetables simply won't grow). Lots of iodine is found naturally in foods if you eat the right ones, but so many of us limit our diet - or have to, because of other food issues - that again, supplementation is necessary.

Since iodine is necessary for proper thyroid function, no one should avoid it if they don't have to.

(Incidence of goiter in the U.S. is around 5%. Incidence of Celiac is around 1%.)

Of course, the other side of this is that we all need to watch how much salt we consume anyway, for hypertension and to not consume too much iodine (for a non-iodine-reactive person) so that we don't cause other thyroid problems!
