New Sensitivities?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I thought I was gluten free for the past six months (been wheat-free for almost a year) but after coming to this site I learned that I was still eating hidden sources of gluten all the time. Over the past month, I've been trying to adhere to a strict no-gluten diet. However, recently I've noticed that I've become very sensitive to corn. After eating it, my stomach aches and I feel like I have an ulcer.

Has anyone else experienced this before? I don't recall having this issue before I stopped eating gluten and am wondering if it's indicative of a messed up intensitinal track.

Do you think this will get better with time? Any suggestions?


2010- Gluten, Soy, Corn, Dairy, Eggs, Nut free. Sugar, non-gluten grains lite(Yes, still plenty to eat!)

2010-Doctor diagnosed me as Celiac then took diagnoses back, then said avoid gluten for life

2009

You might learn about new sensitivities because now that other things are cleared out, you are still feeling a problem and can trace it back.


Gluten-free, Vegan

Well, yes it could be sensitivity to corn, but do you KNOW you don't have an ulcer?

Hubby finally had endoscopy and an ulcer was found. Surprise! that answered a lot of questions about why when he first went gluten-free he still had some symptoms.


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003
