I found this book to truly be a complete guide to life with Celiac Disease. My husband was diagnosed with Celiac in 2004. This book is a compilation of all that we have learned in those seven years and more. It is truly a gift for those who are newly diagnosed to begin to understand how to stay healthy and most pressing, “What can I eat?”
This very practical and well written book covers the basic definitions and diagnosis information, solutions and strategies for successfully living gluten free and potential complications. I love the way the authors take a holistic approach to patient management understanding that there are emotional support issues that travel with any chronic disease. I would highly recommend this book to all health care professionals and any lay person who has been diagnosed with Celiac or who believes that a gluten free diet may be supportive.
