Diagnosed as NCGI. Two months gluten free. Felt better, but still horrible. So discussions on this board and reading academic papers suggested that oats, milk, and corn can also be a problem, so I cut those out; felt better, but still horrible. Then I found this site: http://www.cornallergens.com/list/corn-allergen-list.phpwhich lists all the ingredients which are derived from corn, and I cut all those out. And I felt immediately... good. Weird. I guess I am gluten/corn/dairy/oats intolerant?

Maybe it was corn all along?  Maybe the other things you have cut don't bother you?  Maybe you can try adding something back in to your diets - in a few months.

That's my hope (and then I'm on the wrong discussion board!) but I keep a food diary and I do seem to have real problems with gluten and oats as well. That said, there's no way to know for sure, since I was on at least some corn through those tests. I agree: I'll just avoid everything for a few months and, if I'm doing well all along, try a very controlled experiment on each of the other things.

That is a great site. It helped me tremendously when I was corn intolerant. I too wondered if it had been just corn all along. (I don't have insurance so I never got tested.) But my Mom had celiac (diagnosed in the 80's) and based on that and my response to the gluten-free diet my doctor gave me a diagnosis.

 

For the first three and a half years I was also intolerant to corn and soy (among other things). After I finally healed I got those things back. I have no scientific proof whatsoever but I suspect that NCGI is related to celiac. Maybe you too will get corn back someday.


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!
