At my old job, my partner was diagnosed with crohns. Further testing showed he had actually developed a SEVERE corn allergy. He was bleeding constantly and had lost so much weight. He had to cut out anything with corn syrup, corn starch, corn meal, regular corn... It is actually in almost everything. But once he cut it out he improved about 90%. The docs said he might have done some damage that would take ahwile to heal, hence the other 10%. He was soon "undiagnosed" from crohns. Corn was his problem. But, he was completely unresponsive to any crohns meds which is part of the reason the docs continued testing him.
