Corn Related To Gluten As Well?!

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??

    • This easy to make recipe marries the flavors of blood orange, soy sauce, ginger and garlic with chicken to deliver a tasty gluten-free entrée. The result is a delicious Asian-style pork chop in which the juice of the marinade blends with juice from blood oranges to make a delicious sauce. View the full article
    • Thanks so much! i really appreciate knowing that you would terrible if your number was similar to mine. I tell you, I really thought I was "okay" before I frequented this site. But the more I read about people's symptoms, and them improving, I keep comparing myself to them. And realizing I'm not quite ok. In fact, there's a lot that could be better. thank you both for arming me with more knowledge to approach the doc with. I do wonder if I'll ever be back to my old self. My husband sometimes comments on how different I am than I was when we were first married- super motivated and energetic.    Ps just read on the site you recommended that bipolar might be hashis switching btw high and low.... and guess what my psych says I have and I'm on meds for? I would Love to get off that drug!
    • Hi Victoria! Gemini is right, you need a full thyroid panel in order to really see what is going on with your thyroid.  The remaining tests are Free T3, Free T4, TpoAb and TgAb.  The last 2 are antibody tests.  Ideally, your TSH will be around 1 and the Free #'s will be in 50-75% of the range.   I feel terrible with a TSH where yours is.  Mine is best very close to 1.  Thankfully, my endocrinologist doses based on symptoms! Start by asking your Dr for the full panel.  Give her all of your symptoms as well as your mom's history.  Hopefully, she is willing to order them for you.  Many Drs will only order TSH or that and Free T4, but you really do need all of them. This site is a great resource for all things thyroid: https://stopthethyroidmadness.com/recommended-labwork/ Good luck and please let us know how it goes!
    • Thank you! ive never just called a doctor and ask for a particular test... how do you do this? Do you have to convince them it's necessary first? i would love for these symptoms to resolve, as I've had a lot of them my whole life. Until I read a lot here, I never thought they weren't just, well, normal. my mom had problems with her thyroid. Had it removed in fact. 
    • What would be helpful, Victoria, is to have a full thyroid panel done because you cannot diagnose anyone with Hashi's without a full panel.  It is more important to see what the actual hormone levels are than the TSH. Those would be Free T3 and T4.  You can have low hormone levels and normal TSH.  Your TSH is not too bad but if it starts to climb any higher, that would be cause for concern for Hashi's.  At least your lab seems to use the newer ranges for testing.  Many labs use outdated ranges that go to 5.00 for a cutoff. When my TSH was a 7, I could barely drag myself out of bed in the morning. I have Hashi's and your symptoms are a laundry list for it and Hashi's is very common with Celiac Disease.  You can start having Hashi's symptoms long before the blood work goes off.......like Celiac.
