Topics I've Started

Corn Sensitivity And Pregnancy

20 January 2014 - 08:24 AM

Does anyone have experience to share about corn intolerance and pregnancy?


It's my first pregnancy and it's been a struggle. I am VERY sensitive to anything corn-derived and have to get my medication compounded. Being pregnant has been complicated: finding corn-free prenatals (couldn't find any, I'm taking separate vitamins), dealing with cravings on a restrictive diet, pregnancy symptoms vs "glutenings", corn in glucose tolerance test, corn in IV... 


I am the only one having to deal with this? Doctors don't seem to understand and it's frustrating.

Does Dh React To Corticosteroids And Can It Be Triggered By Corn?

02 December 2013 - 12:34 PM

Hi! Just a quick question for people suffering from DH. Does the itch/redness diminish when applying a corticosteroid cream? I have always had eczema and have been prescribed Triamcinolone for it. Since last year, I have developed a weird rash on my finger that looks like DH (tiny blisters, extremely itchy). I am wondering if it's really DH or just another type of eczema. I get some relief when I put Triamcinolone on it (but it usually bounces right back). Any insight on that?


Another question for those with DH and corn intolerance: do you get a flare-up if you get "corned"? Just trying to figure out what triggers my flare-ups and if it's really DH.



Recurrent Nightmares And Earworms

23 October 2013 - 07:04 AM

I just wanted to share two of my weird gluten symptoms and was curious to know if anyone has experienced the same.


Before I went gluten free I had recurrent SCARY nightmares, usually involving either water (floods, tsunamis) or violence (somebody trying to kill me, I'm being shot at, and so on) that left me feeling like crap when I woke up. I remember having these as a little girl. I used to wake up remembering sometimes up to 10 different dreams, all very crazy and complex. They disappeared when I went gluten free. I actually don't remember my dreams now. I miss the "good" dreams sometimes... But the nightmares come back every time I accidentally get glutened.


I also used to wake up EVERY DAY with a different song playing in my mind. Songs that I don't even particularly like or listen to! This also disappeared when I went gluten free but comes back with the slightest glutening.


Has anyone experienced similar symptoms?

Help, What Am I Reacting To?

15 June 2013 - 03:48 PM

I am hoping some of you can help me understand what I am reacting to. I have been having mild reactions on and off after in the last two weeks. I get the usual migraine and feel very sleepy and foggy. I have been trying to identify the culprit but I no luck so far. I get these reactions after eating breakfast and figured it has to be one or several of theses:


Justin's almond butter

Bob's Red Mill flax seed

Bob's Red Mill chia seeds

Let's do Organic shredded coconut

Larabar Jocalat hazelnut


I stopped eating the Jocalat bars thinking it was that, but I kept having reactions. I am confused because  I have been able to have the other ingredients with no problem on other occasions in the past.


I react to gluten, corn and dairy. I feel like this is more of a corn reaction but I am not sure. 


Any ideas?


Trader Joe's Unfiltered Organic Apple Juice

06 April 2013 - 07:57 PM

Has anyone ever reacted to it? Only ingredient listed is apples. But I am having a gluten-type reaction to it.

I am also intolerant to corn so I don't know which one it is.
