Could Some Corn Intolerant People Help Me?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

When you eat corn, what are the reactions to it?

how long does it take to react?

and how long does it last, I am trying desperatly to figure out if I am just still getting small amounts of CC or have corn intolerance.

It just seems like I react to anything with corn in it.

I'm corn intolerant, and it seems to give similar symptoms as gluten for me. I have heard that it is very common for Celiacs to have trouble with corn

Three days for processed corn. My psoriasis flares and my joints hurt. Whole corn takes a couple hours and leaves my body suddenly and painfully. :blink::ph34r: :ph34r:

My corn reaction is very similar to my wheat reaction, except I get very itchy skin as well. So, extreme abdominal cramping, brain fog, joint pain. I think it passes more quickly than wheat gluten. Also I don't have severe reactions to trace amounts like eating something made with baking powder, although I avoid this. Whereas gluten I would NEVER eat in trace amounts.

i am very much like "srall"... as in, it affects me similar to gluten, but goes away quicker- and i dont react to trace amounts like i would with gluten. my symptoms are intestinal cramping, pain, a little tachycardia and hbp, little itchy, a little bit nasal allergies (maybe i also have a little allergy??, but no hives)

My son has a histamine reaction to corn (all stuffed up, "hay fever" symptoms, circles under eyes) as well as brain fog and fatigue. He gets the brain fog and fatigue with gluten but also gets joint pain and stomach aches, etc from it.

Jestgar, I too have psoriasis, and I'm on day six of my gluten free diet. By day three I saw a very noticable improvement in my psoriasis. Then I bought some gluten free cornbread mix. Today my P is worse again, so I'm thinking it might be the corn.

But now what should I do? Most of the flour mixtures I have seen here and other places contain corn starch. How can I bake a decent tasting bread without it? I can't imagine living without SOME kind of bread. Giving up the processed foods is easy, but bread was always one of my favorite things to eat. :(

If you bake your own bread from scratch, I'm sure you could substitute arrowroot for the cornstarch.

Watch out for arrowroot. My son and I both react to it dramatically. I don't know if it is cc'd or if it is a problem in itself.

I can eat small amounts of corn without noticeable problems. Maybe you'll find a level that works for you as well. You also might react to corn, but not corn starch (not enough protein to bother you). The only way to find out is to experiment. I would avoid corn as much as possible until you get the gluten-free thing figured out, and then start testing.

Fortunately, corn is something that I have been able to add back in to my diet ,,in limited amounts.

I can eat corn(whole corn,corn on the cob ect...) with no problems.

Processed corn(Fritos,corn chips,corn bread ect....) I still get that hole in the gut / brick in the gut feeling if I eat more than a small amount.

I haven't done a lot of experimentation with my corn issues, but here's what I have noticed:

In very small amounts, I can have it, though I do prefer making my own baking powder.

When I get too much corn, I get pain & cramping & D, but like the others said, once it's out of my system, it's out. It also exacerbates my eczema.

lol..

guess I am the only one who seems to get constipated by it >_>

I had 4 extra strength tylenol (the source of corn I believe) when I nearly broke my ankle, and have been having light stomach issues since.. that was.. tuesday only now starting to get over the constipation...

I suppose everyone can have different reactions to corn?

Most of my dietary issues have resolved unless I get glutened or CC. , I get D if glutened and C from soy . I still get constipated by large amounts of cheese ( but I think that is a NORMAL :lol: , reaction to large amounts of cheese .

Also if my thyroid is off (hypo) I get constipated .

I just had my first reaction to corn at the beginning of May of this year, so I'm still figuring this out.

Here are my reactions:

Corn kernels - esophageal swelling within minutes

Corn syrup - lump in the throat

Cornstarch - tickly scratchy throat

Citric acid - hives and itchy/scaley skin, scratchy throat like post nasal drip and a migraine, usually next day

White vinegar - hives and itchy/scaley skin

Xanthan gum - hives and itchy/scaley skin

I still accidentally get corned but I have been keeping a food diary since my corn reaction so I've been figuring most of it out thanks to this list I found on the net: http://www.cornallergens.com/list/corn-allergen-list.php HTH!
