Sorghum Reactions?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I experience massive headaches after ingesting perhaps rather a lot of sorghum-based muffins. It wasn't a gluten reaction, it was something else entirely. Has anyone else found that sorghum gives them a nasty reaction? Any other flours I should watch out for?

My Husband who's gluten-intolerant, had a bad reaction to a sorghum-based recipe. Like you, it wasn't a gluten reaction but definitely a negative reaction. Haven't had the same issue crop up with potato starch or tapioca or rice.


Enlarged thyroid with nodules and Hashimoto's diagnosed 2007. Self-diagnosed as gluten-intolerant.

Husband is gluten-intolerant, also self-diagnosed, suffered from severe eczema which has largely disappeared since avoiding wheat, corn, tomatoes, tree nuts.

I have a friend who's entire family has a problem with sorghum. I will not try it, it's too close to corn, and I can't tolerate corn.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
