Corn And Celiac

Recommended Posts

I have been reading posts that talk about how celiac goes with other allergies/intolerances. I am curious to know how these are related. I have been corn free for almost two years after suffering with some kind of rash (eczema?) for most of my life. Going corn free helped immensly and my rash got much better but never fully went away. My brother has celiac disease and I am wondering now if perhaps it was the celiac that is causing the rash in addition to the corn. For those you of out there who have corn allergies, how would i know whether my reaction is from corn or celiac? Could the celiac have caused the corn allergy or vice versa? How are these related? This is so confusing....

I was diagnosed with a corn allergy about 8 years prior to my celiac disease diagnosis. I had rashy skin that never really went away even without the elimination of corn in my diet. The rash and bloating gets really bad if I eat it in it's purist form, which I do about 2 times a month. I love mexican food so I suffer for it. I was also told at the time I was "slightly allergic' to cows milk. Any idea what that means? When I was finally diagnosed, I was lactose intolerant for about a year. I am now having problems with soy, which is just killing me. It is as bad as a reaction as eating gluten, unless the soy shake I drank has gluten in it now. Which they claim doesn't. I guess I should go on an elimination diet to find out. I don't know if I answered any of your questions, but hope I helped?
