Rice And Corn Intolerance

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have tried to introduce rice and corn into my diet and my body just can't tolerate them. I do not have a violent reaction, as when I am reacting to gluten, but I am experiencing muscle pain, headache, joint pain. Do these foods have the same effect on the villi as gluten?

No, they don't. How long were you off the rice and corn before trying to reintroduce them?

I found I was intolerant to both of them after going gluten-free. I cut rice out for 6 months and corn for about a year, and I can now eat both of them just fine.

Then again, there are other things that I still can't tolerate even after 3 years, so it's pretty individual.

I stopped eating both about a year ago. I have been trying to reintroduce, but the rice causes ongoing D and bloating. I can eat it, but if I have more than two meals in a row with rice, I have problems and need to leave it alone again. Corn causes the same problem. It's hard to not eat both of these though. Thanks for all of your information JerseyAngel. I have found that you have responded to most of my posts. Your help is valuable and helps me feel like my questions are important.

Many people find that they develop intolerances to other foods after dropping gluten (or that they have been there but masked by the gluten intolerance), mostly carbohydrates.

As long as there is gut damage the intolerances will remain. Rogue bacteria in the gut feeds on undigested carbs causing inflammation and damage. The poor digestion is caused through a lack of enzymes and the lack of enzymes is caused by the damage. Vicious cycle.

The only way to stop the damage is to remove the long-chain carbs that contribute to it. Quite a few of us are following the Specific Carbohydrate diet which removes those carbs and are gaining good benefit from it.

Have a look at the SCD thread on this section and the 'breaking the vicious cycle' and 'Pecanbread' websites if you want to know more.
