Corn Allergies?

Recommended Posts

Guest jbugsly

I was curious to hear who else out there has problems with corn? Corn has always hurt me worse than gluten. Anyone else out there have corn issues?

None of us have a true corn allergy, but I get a belly ache every time I eat it. It also tends to send me straight to the bathroom. I love homemade cream style corn and turkey dressing, but that is about all I will risk it for.

I react the same to corn as I do to gluten but can tolerate "VERY SMALL AMOUNTS" of corn starch in my meds. Anything more and I have problems.

I normally get a stomachache after eating corn, any kind... I was curious to see if anyone else has the same problem. Corn products such as corn syrup, dextrose, maltodextrin etc. seems to bother me the most.

Hi my celiac cyberspace friends!

Great book you have to buy. BREAKING THE VICIOUS CYCLE by ELAINE GOTTSCHAALL B.A., M.Sc.

The author believes some of us can't eat, corn rice & potatoes.

Hi I'm baack w/ a baad computer with sticky keys. My other computers were infeected with thee DEADLY trojan virus while looking up drug ingeridents alast night. Please bear with me.

My ssysteem cann NOT tolerate CORN or DAIRY. I live a sstrick gluten free dairy free diet since 2001.

The thyrroid medication I'm taking is giving me diarrhea. I take the pill and eat 30 mins later, within 10 minutes in in the bathroom with diarrhea. I'm taking LEVOXYL 75 mcg generic for SYNTHROID. My ddocc is NO HELP! I caalleed thee paarmaacist and I was told another drug LEVOTHYROXINE does NOT contain dairy or corn.

Does anyonee else have the same probelmss and if so whaat do you taake???

PLEASE HELP!

My daughter has a confirmed corn allergy, but avoids it completely. I think the only thing it's in, is her Vitaballs - as corn syrup. She doesn't eat corn tortillas... corn on the cob... corn... I'm thinking she doesn't even like nacho cheese Doritos (corn chips).

Here's my theory on degrees of allergy... Let's use nuts as an example. People with a really bad nut allergy, I'm assuming, have to avoid those products that say "produced in a plant that also produces products containing nuts". So if those people with a high nut allergy have to avoid those foods..... I'd say that people with a high corn allergy must avoid *all* forms of corn as well. Melanie's allergy level for corn was like a 3.6 on the RAST test. I believe they said the high end limit of the test was 16 or 17, so I guess she's not *too* allergic. But then again... her egg level (slightly less than corn, but still a 3.x) they (the allergist) said was "hardly worth mentioning". Okay doc... do you wanna come to my house at 4am and change the bedsheets after she pukes on them? I didn't think so! It's worth mentioning!

Did I just vent? :ph34r:

I lost my train of thought. Hope somebody gets something out of this, I forgot what I was trying to accomplish. :rolleyes:
