After being diagnosed celiac a few months ago, I've been still dealing with continuing symptoms. Cutting out gluten helped a little, then I added in corn, and that also helped a little. This weekend I started cutting out all soy, and I'm actually starting to see a little bit of a difference (meaning I'm not dealing with the inflammation 24/7 that I have been day in and day out). 

Can I ask if you guys have any webpages or go-to places to find recipes and code words for soy and corn? I learned the hard way with corn a bunch of times (canola oil, and the other hidden names for it). 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

It is very difficult to avoid corn. It is in so many things. Canola is not corn so you should not have a problem with that unless the oil was part corn oil and part canola. My son has a severe allergy to corn where his throat closes up if he eats corn. I myself have also developed an intolerance to corn since finding out I have celiac. You need to look out for maltodextrin - that is usually derived from corn - trying finding food without it - difficult - it is in everything - Gaterade! Watch for baking powder, bread crumbs, double check all your medicines - most probably have corn. It is going to be trial and error to find out how much you could tolerate. Powdered sugar has corn. But they sell a powder sugar without corn on Amazon. Look out for corn syrup - again in so many things. If you google corn allergy there is alot of information. My son is ok with high fructose corn syrup since the corn protein is removed but he can not ear corn syrup. Good Luck!

Corn is a bloody nightmare to remove, Have to watch out for maltodextrin,  modified food starch, baking powder, some vegetable fibers, vegetable oils, corn syrups etc. I only use certain brands myself to avoid. If your eating processed foods, (which you should be on a whole foods only diet for the first for months to boost healing) I might suggest Enjoy Life, Simply Mills for mixes etc. What are you looking for I can help out find you just about anything. I have had a bad corn allergy for years.    I have a list of gluten-free foods I posted on the site before, but adding corn to that list limits it extremely.
