Any Ideas? Having A Major Moment I To Reacted Corn Potatoes White Rice

Recommended Posts

I am having a MAJOR moment because this morning i reacted to corn, it was whole corn, not flour. I have been on an elimination diet and so far corn, potatoes, gluten, white rice and bananas. I think i am reacting to starches. But sweet potatoes seems to be fine, Any ideas? I have reacted to 3 of the 4 things i tried. I am hungry and getting sick of steak and mushroom for breakfast lunch and dinner.

The corn wasnt as bad reaction as the pototoes. I react to corn the same way i react to bananas so weird. My aunt has a problem with fructose (a type of sugar) and bananas is the only fruit that is fine for that! I thjnk my problem maybe with starches

I react to processed corn (i.e. in gluten-free breakfast cereals), but not to any kinds of potatoes. Sorry to say I have no idea why! Have you gotten allergy tested? What kind of reaction do you have?

hi, the reaction is just diarrhea. It was corn on the cob, not processed.

Potatoes give me a bad stomach ache then diarrhea really bad, i get lots of other symptoms with potatoes.

I am getting blood tests for common allergies. Results are back on monday or tuesday. :-)

Corn and potatoes (nightshade family--you will often react to tomatoes, peppers, aubergine also) are very common intolerances along with gluten. I have read of a few people on here who react to rice, and some to bananas. Sometimes these intolerances are temporary and you will be able to eat these things later once you have healed. Sweet potatoes are a good and nutritious starch, although you can get tired of them (I know!) Do you react to any other fruits and vegetables? Can you eat chicken and fish? Steak and mushrooms is really not an adequate diet, as you know. Can you eat something like kiwifruit? frozen blueberries? On your elimination diet what have you not reacted to?

Common allergies or common food allergies? Usually the food allergies need to be requested in addition to the common allergies.

I'd love to eat steak for breakfast, lunch and dinner but I'm a huge red meat eater. I've tested low on amino acids so my nutritionist told me to eat more red meat. Now is she'd said eat more chicken I would have been in trouble.

Hang in, try to find a few foods that do not bother you. Stay with those so your digestive system can rest and start to heal. Take your time introducing new foods and wait a few day in between introducing the next new food.


1960s-had symptoms-could have been before but don't remember

1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms

Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance

2000-osteopenia

2001-had stroke because of medications I was given

June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months

June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)

May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world

Is corn deadly nightshade family? I have already gone off deadly nightshades, but is corn deadly nightshade?

I have only tested 4 things so far and reacted to 3. I think i may have a problem with chicken and pork definately pork it makes me feel really sick when i eat it. but i will have to test it properly.

yes I have been told sometime intolerances are temporary. I reacted to corn like i reacted to bananas so i am hoping that i can have corn. I dont love corn but its much harder to cut it out! because it is in so many things. that is why i had a moment this morning!

It was a test for Common food allergies.

That is the problem i am having trying to find food i dont react too! I have tried 4 things and reacted to 3. So i wanted some direction as to what i should try next and maybe what i should avoid for a while as i might react to it.

No, I'm sorry, I should have put a comma after corn; did not intend to imply it was a nightshade. Funny, I can eat the corn in New Zealand, but not in U.S.; think it has something to do with the genetic modification. It is hard to keep corn out, and soy, along with the gluten. I went to a restaurant the other night and there was only one thing I could have on the menu, a salad, and I had to ask them to take the grapefruit out. :o Everything else had gluten, corn, cream, tomato, potato, citric acid of some kind. AND they wouldn't cook the steak without the flour!!! :(

But hang in there, because this phase of intolerance will pass once you heal and you will be able to add more things back in. If you could do fish that would be good for you, some cod or flounder perhaps? How are you with dairy??

Thanks for that i need a bit of encouragement.

the corn is reacting badly now. I have bad stomach cramps. I usually get this within about 20 minutes of eating potatoes, so i am feeling so sorry for myself today!

Dairy and lactose I am not sure of. I have been lactose free for 3 months and completely gluten free for 7 months. I have just gone off deadly nightshade for about a week. I am still using butter and lactose free milk which i seem to be fine on (crossing fingers and toes). I am getting a test for dairy so i will see on monday or tuesday.

I am taking multivitamins that i will go off in case there is something in them!

Sorry you're having these problems! I can relate, unfortunately.

I'm starting to think I need to avoid ALL grains (rice, corn, sorghum, millet, etc...). I've heard this from a lot of people on this board, especially the people on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. You might be interested in this....it's the diet people have turned to when the gluten-free dairy-free diet isn't working as well as they expected it to.

There's a separate thread here for the SCD diet (warning: it's incredibly long! 150 pages!!):

https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/index.php?showtopic=54285

Anyway, good luck!!

Is your elimination diet being guided by an allergist? The reason I ask it because you state you are still consuming dairy products. This is going to seem hard but you need to eliminate the butter and the milk. You may have an issue with casein and your reactions to other foods may not be reactions to those foods but to the dairy that you have not deleted. You also should not be adding foods back in until the reactions are totally resolved. You also need to add in those foods one at a time for a week without butter or other condiments.

thanks for that. i have already gone off all dairy, and tested butter and lactose free milk, they both seem to be fine. I have gone off all other dairy though. All i am using is a little bit of butter some days and lactose free milk in my decaf every day. I those two items are ok because my no 2 get solid again even when i eat them. But I will do another test just in case. I like to test things twice if i can.

I am trying to work out which vegs are lower in fibre in starch to test next any ideas?
