I have had an allergic reaction to Dextrose IVs. It wasn't Anaphalyxis though. This is before my Corn allergy became that severe.

I wouldn't put too much stock into anything the respondant to Rosie says. One of the things she and her editor reference is a quack cure that has no scientific evidence of helping a person with food allergies. On the same page as the Helminthic Therapy, they reference NAET and that is definitely a dangerous quack cure that has caused people with food allergies to risk their lives.

I really wonder about how "rare" Corn allergies really are. I talk to just as many people who have severe reactions to peanuts and nuts as I do with severe reactions to Corn. However, because people don't know all the different products Corn is in they don't realize they are having a food allergy reaction to Corn.

If someone starts listing hundred plus common packaged foods and non-food products that they react to, I tell them to get skin prick tested for a Corn allergy. They all end up with a positive result and only feel better when they start lowering their Corn intake (since it is impossible to avoid Corn 100% in the US).

I personally don't think Corn allergies are rare. I think they are purposely undiagnosed because it would be expensive for businesses to bother to list that their products contain Corn.

Corn Allergy and Autism Dietary Intervention:

<<<Since wheat, milk, soy, corn and eggs are the most common allergens found among autistics, before giving up on dietary treatments, it’s a good idea to investigate all potential sensitivities and allergies.>>>

<<<Discovering the places where corn and corn derivatives hide is essential to eliminating them from the diet. However, U.S. law doesn’t require manufacturers to list ingredients on the label that have been legally determined to be proprietary information. Since corn is not one of the eight major allergens, this trade secret status is often used. Manufacturers do not have to reveal whether a natural flavoring or the citric acid in a product came from corn.>>> ... on-a405349

I went through my old files and found this article about Dr. Theron Randolph and his treatment after trying to bring awareness to corn allergy:

<<<In 1944, Dr. Randolph began a private practice and became a member of the staff of Northwestern University Medical School. He boldly announced that he did not follow the familiar skin tests favored by the other orthodox allergists, but concentrated on food ingestion tests. When Dr. Randolph made his morning rounds, some medical students asked to accompany him. His quiet, dignified manner attracted inquisitive students. By following Dr. Randolph, the students became involved in a quest to find the demonstratable cause of the patient's illness. Common foods (such as corn) turned out to be the most frequent causes, but first the food had to be unmasked and avoided.

This courageous, indomitable, single-minded clinician followed his convictions in the 1950s and 1960s, at great personal cost. In 1949, he was invited to testify before the Food and Drug Administration in Washington, DC. He requested that all food ingredients, especially corn, cane, and beet sugar, be listed on all processed food. After returning to Chicago, he could no longer mention his medical school affiliation in his articles; a major food manufacturer suddenly cancelled his research grant, which had previously been approved for extension; and he was terminated from the staff of Northwestern University Medical School, "as a pernicious influence on medical students".>>>

It really sounds like he was ahead of his time. How many others now face this type of situation.

Almost always the underlying cause of eosinophilic esophagitis is a food allergy. A gastroenterologist or allergist may implement dietary restrictions to pinpoint the food that triggers the allergic response. The most commonly involved foods include:

Post subject:  Re: Articles about Corn Allergy

Corn allergies are increasingly being discussed in doctors and pediatricians’ offices.

But corn is still not considered a top allergen, as corn allergy is something that we haven’t decided to officially start counting.

At least not yet

Nicole Jurain talks about how corn affects her son:

"Corn is everywhere and it needs to be acknowledged because corn allergies are not uncommon, they are commonly misdiagnosed."

Here is a great article "Hidden Food Sensitivities: A Common Cause of Many Illnesses". Note that in Table 1 corn is ranked #1 for reactions.

"We have reported on food allergies in patients with headaches, joint and muscle pain, depression and other mental illness."

"the antigen with the greatest number of positive reactions was corn with 36 out of 49 (73%)"... See More ... 1-p027.pdf
