10 posts in this topic

I seen this on the news awhile ago but I came across the website. I myself can tolerate corn, or high fructose corn syrup. Nor can I tolerate beans very well. I thought this was interesting http://www.(Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned)/gluten-free-society-blog/new-research-will-demand-an-evolution-in-the-gluten-free-diet-definitions/

Anyone else have an issue with corn

Oh... It won't let me post the whole Thing. But I guess research has supposedly found corn gluten to have similar effects and damages in people with celiac. Like I said I have found myself to be intolerant to any form of corn and beans

They also included reactions to certain beans. Now their questioning the directions and definition of a true gluten free diet. Any thoughts on the subject?

I have always had a problem with corn - bloated, burning diarrhea, pain in my abdomen - and at first my doctor thought I had IBS, but after asking me some other questions, she said she wanted to test me for Celiac. I was shocked to find out that I do have Celiac. I haven't touched corn since... Much happier!!!

There are many of us who have problems with corn, too. The corn 'gluten' is different from that in wheat, barley and rye and most celiacs can eat it without problem, but for many of us it is a separate intolerance we also have. All grain plants have storage proteins that work in the same way as gluten and it is possible to react to them also -- it is just not the same reaction as to the gluten in wheat, rye and barley. There is also a protein known as a lectin in all these grains and pseudo-grains like millet, quinoa, amaranth, and some of us are lectin-reactive also.

I knew corn made me bloat before I knew about gluten. Now, I also react to rice. I agree with the infomation found on that website, if it is the same one that has been banned, that I tried to post about. Perhaps not all need to be that strict... but for me it works! I am still eating beans, but eyeing the reactions cautiously. The people associated with that website have been really generous with me offering free videos and information on occassion.

I am unsure if I have Celiac specifically, but I am allergic to corn as well as having a gluten free diet.

How can you tell if your body is just taking a long time to heal or if you need to eliminate other foods? I made some chicken last night coated in corn starch (very good - from gluten-free pinterest board), pan fried in coconut oil and my daughter has been "glutened" since about an hour after we ate it. She's feeling terrible and so am I for not knowing how to care for her. I wonder if the corn starch is something we should avoid??

    • Hi again, I was also wondering whether having the bowel preparation will have lowered the TTG level at all? Thank you for everything.  
    • Welcome to the forum Lakme! You can find a lot of good info on celiac testing at this link. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faqs/ You do need to eat gluten for 12 weeks before the blood antibodies test.  A single slice of bread is enough gluten.  Since you have been avoiding gluten the antibodies in your bloodstream may have dropped to a point they can't be measures now.  But it's impossible to know for sure.  The celiac testing process is a celiac disease antibodies panel followed by an endoscopy to check for damage to the gut lining.  I suggest you at least get the blood antibodies tested.  If you can afford the endoscopy that is good to do also. Another important test is for vitamin and mineral levels.  Celiac disease can cause malabsorption and deficiencies in various vitamins etc. I am not clear on your skin issues?  There is a skin rash associated with celiac disease that can also be tested.  It is called dermatitis herpetiformmis or DH.  A diagnosis of DH is a diagnosis of celiac disease.  DH can be very itchy. There is also a celiac condition called gluten ataxia where eating gluten causes affects on the brain or nerves.  People with gluten ataxia may have trouble walking and coordinating muscles.  Since it affects the brain that can cause various symptoms.  I'd be guessing if I tried to describe all the possibilities there. It can be much harder/more unpleasant to get tested for celiac disease after being off gluten for a few months.  once you start feeling better and your body starts healing, the switch back to eating gluten can really knock a person down.  So it's better to be tested before stopping eating gluten.
    • Been wondering about these also, I been personally just using frozen ones from Trader Joe's. But I also have a thing with the salt, thinking a good rinse and soak in some water for 15mins should help pull it out. Would be great in omlettes, sautes, and in my pasta dishes.
    • That is the brand I use, screw all the other stuff he says. The fact is the pure pumpkin powder protein is really high in zinc, magnesium, and several key amino acids, fats, and various other nutrients. But it on amazon btw. the double or the 5lb are the best deals. It is one of the few proteins that help me to put on weight. Also a few tsp before bed makes you sleep quite deep when taken with a bit of almond milk.      You might also look into Hemp Protein, NOTE Jarrow is the only one that still makes gluten-free hemp protein. Everyone else says they might have blow over contamination from wheat. Oh if you need bars and also have issues with whey like I do Julian Makes some paleo bars. Flavor/texture can take some getting used to. Oh and if your alright with rice protein Nutrabiotic makes a full spectrum version enhanced with sprulina. If you need links to places on where to find these at the best price message me I will see if I can track down some deals.
    • Thanks Kenlove. I know you have been in Japan so you'll understand when I say the artichoke hearts were on sale for 377 yen for the two jar set. Too good to pass up! As long as I can eat them!
