Speed Of Reaction To Corn

Recommended Posts

Since being diagnosed with Celiac I cut out corn as sure that was making me react before but interestingly I read just not that reactions usually occur after a few hours or longer. If I eat some corn crisps and five minutes after feel my skin is itchy is that unlikely to be the corn?

Sounds like it could be a true allergy rather than an intolerance.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

It's not all that rare. There are several websites devoted to the topic. Here's one that helped me when I was corn intolerant. Even though an intolerance isn't as serious as an allergy I learned a lot there about the things to avoid. If what you have IS an allergy, your next exposure might be full blown anaphalaxis. If it is just (JUST??) an intolerance you can still learn a lot from this site anyway.

Back when I was intolerant to corn I had one particularly bad experience. I ate a vitamin pill that I thought was corn-free. Turns out it wasn't. Within minutes I was bloating and gassy. About a half hour later I had explosive D. Then after spending about an hour in the bathroom I got such shivering chills I couldn't get warm no matter how many comforters I piled on. And I had crazy muscle contractions several times a minute that wracked my whole body. It was almost like having a seizure. I truly thought I was going to die. At that point I was convinced that my intolerance was actually an allergy.

 

Fast forward to now and I can tolerate corn again. Three and a half years of being gluten-free and my gut has finally healed and my immune system has calmed down. I hope it happens for you too. But remember, if it IS an allergy your next exposure might lead to anaphalaxis, so if you try corn again make sure you have someone with you who knows to get you to the ER immediately.
