Anyone Sensitive To Corn Since Going gluten-free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that I can no longer tolerate corn. Anyone else notice this? Today I had a reaction to corn flour in a product(only thing it could be) and if I eat fresh corn, I get quite sick from it, as well.

Let me know what you think!

I feel soooo sorry for you :(

If I could no longer eat corn I don't know what I'd do. A few years ago I found corn was making my sinuses go bananas. I figured it was because of GM (Genetically Modified) corn, since it was found to cause hightened allergic reactions. So, with all the opposition and the allergy issues, the GM corn was supposed to be used as animal feed only. I had no choice but to stop eating corn, even if it wasn't what I suspected. About two years later, I read that GM corn had been "accidentally" packaged for human consuption, ending up in grocery stores. The time frame given in the report matched my allergic reactions. Before trying corn again, I waited awhile longer as an added margin of safety, just to make sure all the GM stuff had filtered out of the market. I haven't had the allergic reactions so far, which is such a relief! I suspect that they intentionally placed the GM corn onto the market as a test to see if they could get away with it. After all, those whom promote it have been downplaying the allergy issues, and pushing very hard to try and get consumer acceptence.

I don't know if this has anything to do with your reactions, but I thought I'd share it. Corn is an allergen for many people anyway. Though if you are talking about gluten-type reactions, I can't say I have any idea why accept if you went gluten-free relatively recently, it may be that your reactions had been masked by the overwhelming gluten reactions.

If you live in a farming area, have you tried fresh corn from a small local grower? Perhaps you should ask them about the seed they use.

Hope this helps somehow.

Corn is something I had to give up. Watch out, corn syrup is in EVERYTHING. It is in pasta sauces, gum, condiments, etc. Corn is harder to avoid than gluten. Watch out for the gluten-free mixes, they often use corn too. I had similar reactions to corn that I did with gluten. I can tolerate small amounts very infrequently. Many pills use corn starch and it is in some of the pills I take those don't really bother me too much - as long as I don't eat more stuff with corn.

I had that exact same problem with corn for a while. I eliminated it from my diet completely for a couple of months and now I can tolerate small amounts of it again.

My husband had York testing and they say that he has corn allergy/intolerance but he eats it anyway because he can't have soy, sorghum and of course WOBR. He feels deprived enough so he eats it as corn flakes and cream style corn (not everyday) and gluten-free cornbread.

I am not fully certain that the York testing is legit anyway.....

...my ears go red :blink:

That's really interesting to me, because when I was little I'd get red ears a lot when I wasn't feeling well, and nobody could figure out that part either, much less the gluten connection.

Corn now makes me terribly bloated and gives me indigestion. I didn't notice it until I went gluten free. I love popcorn and can not eat it now :angry:
