Product Description

Unmasking One of the Most Underdiagnosed Autoimmune Diseases

Do you suffer from gastrointestinal complaints, fatigue, headaches, joint pain, anemia, and/or itchy skin conditions? Have you consulted numerous doctors, and been prescribed drugs and diets that have only temporarily alleviated some symptoms? If so, you may have celiac disease, a hereditary autoimmune condition that affects nearly one in every hundred people—97 percent of whom remain undiagnosed and untreated.

If you are one of these people, the real answer to your medical problems may lie in this book. Dr. Peter Green, director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University and internationally renowned expert on the disease, together with Rory Jones, an accomplished science writer who was diagnosed with the disease in 1998 and has been researching it ever since, have written the first and only authoritative guide on how celiac disease is properly diagnosed, treated, and managed. The disease is triggered by gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten damages the lining of the small intestine so that it cannot properly absorb food. Without essential nutrients, the entire body begins to suffer. Complications from celiac disease can include infertility, depression, liver disease, other autoimmune diseases (such as type 1 diabetes and thyroid disease), and even cancer. This is a disease that you do not outgrow. At present, the only way to treat it is to follow a lifelong gluten-free diet.

This revised and updated edition contains the most current information on celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and gluten sensitivity. It examines the disease's many manifestations and includes an entire section devoted to coping with the psychological aspects of living with a chronic illness and the gluten-free diet. There is new information about testing for the disease; a closer look at the causes, as well as related conditions; the latest scientific research toward a cure; an updated guide to ingredients and safe grains; and an expanded list of gluten-free manufacturers and national and international support groups.

An "inside-out" examination and explanation of celiac disease, this is a must-read for both patients and the medical community.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for people with Celiac!
This is a great book for people with Celiac Disease, or if they have a family member with it. It explains how the disease effects your body, symptoms, long term effects, and emotional effects as well. I'm not usually one to read books much, but this book is worth reading. I felt isolated before I started reading this book, as if no one understood what I'm going through. Since I started reading this book I now know that I'm not alone, and feel as if I'm not the ONLY one living with this misunderstood disease!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good info on Celiac Disease.
Very informative and current information. Helped me quite a bit as well as letting family members know what Celiac Disease encompasses. Great resource!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great information
Actual cases and personal observations helped to make the information more pertinent for my newly diagnosed spouse.

5-0 out of 5 stars Celiac bible
This book is a must for those with Celiac Disease.This book will answer all of your questions about glutten and the disease.I strongly recommend that you add this volume to your library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gluten Free Awareness
Kudos to Dr. Peter Green and Rory Jones for their highly readable and comprehensive book.With one out of every 100 people being diagnosed with celiac disease and 30 out of every hundred having the HLA-DQ2 and -DQ8 lymphocytes that must be present to be diagnosed a celiac, anyone gluten sensitive should read this book.
In this allergy/reaction to gluten, they have found a cause for most of the autoimmune diseases (i.e. diabetes), plus peripheral neuropathy, depression, dementia, infertility, and cancer.They report the symptoms, which range from migraines, skin conditions, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, broken bones, to no symptoms whatsoever.Laboratory tests are listed to diagnose the condition with a discussion of their accuracy including the false positives and negatives.Some diet information is given and suggestions on how to adapt to a life style that involves no gluten.And the emphasis is on NO as the effect on the patient's health can ultimately lead to cancer.
Where I disagree with them is in their promotion of a low fat diet.Low trans fat, yes, but not low fat.A healthy diet has moderate amounts of good fats including saturated fats.See:Barry Groves "Trick and Treat" and Anthony Colpo's "The Great Cholesterol CON".Without an adequate amount of fat you are hungry all the time, eat more carbs, and gain weight.They state that "nutritional deficiencies are common in those with celiac disease on a gluten-free diet." Many cultures in this world were never exposed to gluten until modern times, yet they managed to survive millions of years on a gluten free diet.It is this heredity that makes so many people sensitive to the gluten found in some grains. The authors emphasize testing (constantly) and follow-ups to make sure you are adhering to the diet, yet the tests are not very accurate and some invasive.Most doctors do not even have celiac on their radar so you will probably have to be self diagnosed.If it works to solve your health problems you will follow the diet.Reading about the consequences if you fail to follow the diet should give you added incentive.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must have book!
For anyone trying to deal with Celiac disease this is a must have if you want to not go crazy trying to keep all the information you collect along the way straight. It has so much easily understood information I purchased it instead of constantly using the library copy, which is not my norm. I find myself referring back to this book constantly and also loaning it out to people that will come into play with the toddler that is in my care. It makes a tough situation at least understandable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Those New to Celiac's
This was the first book I read after being diagnosed with Celiac's.It was very informative in an easy to understand manner.The first part covers the diagnosis process and what exactly it means to have this disease.This also includes some meal ideas, so that you can get an idea of foods/meals you can still eat.There was a section giving advice if you have a child with Celiac's, but I skipped over that part since it didn't apply to me.The last part of the book covered going out, attending social gatherings and hosting parties again.This was also very helpful.This section also provided you with some more recipes for certain occasions, such as birthdays.Overall, it was a good read provided me with a more knowledge on Celiac's, as well as provided some inspiration for living a happy health life.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent source of information
This book has some wonderful information on Celiac disease as well as excellent recipes.One that I love is the all purpose flour (gluten free).I have used it to make pizza dough (wonderful) and a lemon squares desert(very tasty) and I'm going to try my favorite recipe for pancakes with it.I would recommend this book for anyone with Celiac desease looking for answers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource
I have recently been diagnosed with a gluten intolerance. I realized that a major dietary change was going to be necessary, but I had no idea how to begin.After purchasing this book, I'm back in control of my life.The author has the expertise and experience; she knows her subject very well. I learned about wheat/gluten diseases, the differences between them and how to begin coping with my "new" life. If I had any other questions, websites were listed where I could find further help, support groups and sites where I could order gluten-free products and freshly-made meals (delivered)!

I highly recommend this book to anyone with questions concerning gluten or wheat-free living, whether it will benefit themselves or a loved one. You won't regret it (I promise)!

5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT BOOK!
I was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease and this book was DEFINITELY a must read.I learned so much about the disease and what food products I will need to eliminate to avoid gluten completely.Jules expert advice, tips, and recipes are a lifesaver to anyone eliminating gluten from their diets, whether for personal reasons or due to a positive diagnosis of Celiac Sprue Disease.The journey has definitely been easier with the help from Jules book.A doctor may be able to tell you what to eat, this book helps explain how to keep your normal life eating gluten free.A heartfelt thank you goes out to Jules E. Dowler Shepard for writing such an informative book.

Product Description
This is the first practical guide for the families of children and teenagers with celiac disease, a chronic, life-long digestive disorder.One out of 250 Americans is born with this genetic autoimmune condition, which is characterized by intolerance of gluten (wheat, rye, barley, malt, and other food additives) and often goes undiagnosed.In a supportive conversational style, Danna Korn shows that it's possible for kids with celiac disease and their families to lead happy and healthy lives.

Parents find advice on how to deal with the diagnosis, cope with emotional turmoil, and help their child develop a positive and constructive attitude.Especially important is the guidance on menu planning, grocery shopping, strategies for proper food preparation, and deciding whether or not the entire family should be gluten-fee.There's even a section on junk food!

What about the child who has difficulty sticking with the prescribed diet?Parents find tips on conditioning behavior and how and when to give kids some control over what they eat.Also covered is the challenge of controlling meals outside of the home-at birthday parties, restaurants, camp, and on vacation.Dozens of recipes help parents be creative and offer well-rounded appealing meals and snacks.There's also information about how special education laws can help with services at school.

As the only comprehensive book of its kind, Kids with Celiac Disease will be the bible for the thousands of families coping with this condition.Physicians and nutritionists too, will want to refer new families to this complete resource. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Must Read if you have a celiac child!!
Recently, my six year old was diagnosed with Celiac Disease.This book has been a blessing.Anyone who has received a Celiac diagnosis, knows how scary it can be to wonder "how the heck am Igoing to safely feed my child??"Donna Korn, the author, has been there, and her resulting book is a guide to help parents and children not just live with Celiac, but thrive with Celiac.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear and Practical
I have read other books on Celiac disease, but this book targets how parents can help children with this diagnosis.Celiac disease runs in our family.I have it, my teenager has been recently diagnosed and I have a grandaughter with it.This book clearly spells out ways to communicate about the disease with pre-schoolers up through teenagers and some of the emotional issues that may surface.

The author has fun and useful ideas to make the diet pleasurable for children.She has a great section on school lunch ideas and ways to help friends, family and school be informed.

Kids with Celiac is full of information, but written in an easy to read style.This book is packed with hope and encouragement. It even has a section on how to feed a child immediately after diagnosis.She takes away the panic and gives instead a plan of action.This book is a winner!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource
When we found out our 2 year old had celiac disease, his doctor recommended this book.It has been a great resource for us. It is easy to read and easy to understand.It is very well organized, making it easy to find the information you need at that particular moment.

5-0 out of 5 stars my new GF bible
This guide raises flags all over the place on ingredients I always thought were safe so I went into my pantry and took a close look at everything. OMG. I always took for granted rice was safe, but the brand I was buying had food starch added which I now discovered contains wheat. Worchestire sauce that I used to season roast beef with has barley in it. This book is now my official bible! Forget the sheets and sheets of paper you have printed from all these Celiac sites on the internet, they all have mistakes anyways! Take my word for it and order this guide and make sure you never buy any products without checking it against the safe list!

5-0 out of 5 stars get 2 copies
Every Celiac household needs 2 copies: 1 to accompany the grocery shopper and 1 on the kitchen counter for the cook. I honestly can't remember how I managed before I got this guide! Actually, I can. Lots of gas, bloating, cramps, and who knows what other damage I was causing my body. Seriously, every Celiac needs 2 copies. Maybe 3 if more than 1 person does the shopping

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't leave home without it!
As a newly diagnosed Celiac, I didn't know where to begin.This book has been a lifesaver for me at grocery stores and restaurants.I haven't even had a chance to read the full book yet, but the middle section that lists pages and pages of ingredients and whether or not they are safe - this is my saving grace!This book is slim and compact and I keep this book in my purse at all times.If you are newly diagnosed, you are probably overwhelmed with the amount of reading and research needed, just as I am.This book is a great place to start, just for that ingredient list alone.

5-0 out of 5 stars you will use it every day !
Lots of books on gluten nowadays - I guarantee this will be the one you use day in and day out! Good information, lots of tips, really useful for everybody around the gluten intolerant person too. It's short, sweet, to the point and seriously convenient. For the price of 2 magazines you are buying guaranteed safety that you can carry around with you everywhere, forget "it's a good buy", I'd say it's an outright necessity if you have Celiac

5-0 out of 5 stars really useful pocketguide
If you need to learn everything about Celiac, get a huge thick book and set aside a few months of your time-which every Celiac needs to do eventually. But if you need a cheat sheet version on safety immediately and a tiny little guide you can carry around all over the place to check safe or unsafe ingredients, you want this handy little thing. I guarantee you are going to use it every day to check every box, every jar, every bag ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Gluten-free, but what about healthy?
I'm just skimming the book over, because much of the information I'm already familiar with. Kimberly Tessmer is an RD(Registered Dietician), and LD(Licensed Dietician). The book does contain helpful info regarding celiac disease. However, I am quite dissappointed with the nutritional content. There are quite a few recipes, but just about all of them contain cheese, and many also contain meat. According to [...] cheese/dairy is one of the worst things you can put into your body. [...] can also inform you of the hormones and antibiotics that they pump into the livestock today. Also, the author repeatedly encourages you to consult with a qualified professioal or physician. Just be forewarned about the medical community's lack of knowledge and/or willingness to diagnose celiac disease for what it is. Mis-diagnosis are quite common as Elizabeth Hasselbeck will attest to in her book. According to Dr. Green in her book The GFree Diet, "In the U.S. less than 5 percent of those who have celiac disease get diagnosed-compared with the roughly 30 to 40 percent diagnosis rate in other countries such as Australia, Italy, and Ireland. The reason- in this country the pharmaceutical idustry provides 80 percent of the money for medical research. Simply put: Since there are no drugs to treat celiac disease, pharmaceutical companies stand to gain no profits from encouraging its diagnosis." ... Read more

Product Description

Celiac disease is a digestive disorder caused by a sensitivity to the protein gluten in wheat flour, which in turn can damage the small intestine and inhibit the body’s absorption of nutrients from food. The disease is hereditary and can affect entire families. Cowritten by a registered nurse who lives with celiac disease, a dietician, and a clinical pharmacist, this indispensable guide tackles all aspects of the disease, including symptoms, diagnosis, management, complications, and current research. While many cookbooks and dietary manuals on gluten intolerance exist, Celiac Disease is the only book on how to live fully and richly while maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle. In addition to learning how to set up and maintain a gluten-free kitchen, readers find strategies for tackling emotional issues, nutrition and dietary guidelines, tips for dining out, and advice on raising a celiac child.

3-0 out of 5 stars good book but preachy about religion
I found this book to be really good and had some great info on Celiac disease. It also had some great ideas, links, etc. What I didn't care for was the author's rather forceful religious views that she sprinkled throughout the book. It was a rather Christian-centric (is there such a word) book in that she seemed to assume that everyone reading the book was religious and a Christian. She mentioned God several times throughout the book. I, for one, did not feel comfortable with this. This should be a medical book but I don't think it's appropriate to bring religion (especially in the way that she did) into it. This book seems to be somewhat between a medical book and religious literature. She needs to stick to one or the other, I don't like the mixing of the religious themes into this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Celiac Disease
Excellent reading for the newly diagnosed person with CD.Author is excellent and product is delivered quickly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chock-full of Gluten-free Information
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with a gluten intolerance, you need to read this book! I've gone through this harrowing experience over the past month and my new book is making a difference! I'm unafraid as I begin to live a new life, and am starting to foresee my future optimistically.

The book is so informative that I can't begin to list its benefits. I WILL admit to reading it three times so far, highlighting AND underlining pertinent information, taking copious notes and copying/visiting many suggested web sites (remember, it's only been a month)! I do suggest keeping a small, spiral notebook for listing the most important suggestions, page numbers, web sites, support groups and product names...especially if you're a visual/tactile learner like myself (meaning I remember much more if I take notes).

As new questions arise, I return to the book for more information. I don't know how long it will take for me to develop a "habitual" gluten-free lifestyle, but this book has been a necessary and invaluable resource in the meantime!

Celiac Disease is difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to live with.This book should give hope and encouragement to anyone with Gluten Intolerance.I have recommended it to our local support group as it is well researched and very well written.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for Celiacs!
I just got this book yesterday and already it has been immensely helpful. I have had celiac for 2 years and have read many books and know a lot but this book is chock-full of resources for the novice and the "pro" alike. It has websites and articles and tips for many situations. I like that the chapters are organized by topic so you don't have to wade through a ton of material to find the thing you need to know. Each chapter is written by an expert on that particular sub-topic. Kudos to Melinda Dennis and Dr. Leffler for this important and thorough addition to the celiac canon!

4-0 out of 5 stars A good one
I've read so many books about Celiac Disease and know more than your average Joe... what I liked especially about this book is the broad scope of information and personal stories.It will fill in the gaps in your knowledge about Celiac, but more important, it will introduce you to the range of experiences that come along with being human and having this condition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Real Life with Celiac Disease provides a wealth of information about celiac disease and the gluten free diet addressing both the common, clear cut issues as well as the complex or controversial topics surrounding the disease and diet.The topics covered in this book answer the questions a large majority of people have about celiac disease including confusing test results, difference between gluten intolerance and celiac disease, and nutrients one may be missing while following a gluten free diet.The information is provided in a clear, yet thorough manner.I highly recommend all individuals interested in celiac disease (patients, family members, and health care professionals alike) read this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Incredible Resource
I don't enough accolades to do this book justice! It written clearly, yet it is incredibly comprehensive. It anticipates the questions that both "old pros" and newly diagnosed celiacs often have. The book is an invaluable resource for maximizing health and nutrition while living gluten free. Much to my chagrin, many other books I have read about living gluten free seem to downplay the general principles of nutrition. This book is different. This book does not lecture you, but it provides invaluable recommendations, tenable data, and practical applications. It also addresses many other conditions that often coexist or stem from Celiac. Thanks to this book, for the first time since my diagnosis, I feel like I can be just as healthy without the gluten-containing whole grains that are so ubiquitous in our culture. Dr. Leffler, Ms. Dennis and their collaborators have done a wonderful job addressing the nuances of this disease. But the book not simply theory; there is a clinical focus that is really great. Every chapter contains a case study with real patients, who've had real experiences.I have found a new gluten free bible!

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read!
Real Life with Celiac Disease: Troubleshooting and Thriving Gluten-Free is an invaluable resource and truly a unique book! It offers individuals with celiac disease, their family and friends, and others living with a gluten-sensitivity a chance to explore and really understand (in layman's terms!) the many different nutritional and medical topics associated with living gluten-free. The patient case stories are a wonderful addition that provides both comfort and camaraderie to patients and families, helping them to understand that they are not alone in facing certain problems or challenges with their celiac diagnosis or gluten-free lifestyle. These detailed personal accounts make Real Life with Celiac Disease: Troubleshooting and Thriving Gluten-Free read more like a compelling novel than your typical health and nutrition guide - it's the best of both worlds!

More than 50 experts joined Melinda and Dr. Leffler in writing this book, all names that many celiac patients will readily recognize, and most importantly, trust. Together, this large group of expert physicians, dietitians and researchers provide our community with support and knowledge - two attributes that are always welcomed and highly valued when it comes to learning how to live happily and healthily on the gluten-free diet. And of course, having the American Gastroenterological Association publish Melinda and Dr. Leffler's first book only strengthens the recommendations and advice within Real Life with Celiac Disease.

The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness recommends this fantastic resource and easy to navigate guide for anyone diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity - whether you were recently diagnosed or have been living gluten-free for years.Happy reading! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Personal Touch on Celiac Disease(the #1 Misdiagnosed Intestinal Disorder)
This is a good book and is very knowlegeable about the Celiac Disease.

4-0 out of 5 stars Like Lurking on an Internet Support Group
This is a collection of personal experiences with celiac disease. The writers are ordinary people who either are gluten-intolerant or live with someone who is. The accounts are interesting.

If you ever spent time in an internet group for a health-related condition, you will find the general tone of the stories familiar, except that they do not attack or otherwise comment on each other. The newly-diagnosed celiac will find encouragement within these stories.

I learned from the writers that some celiacs get sick from trace amounts of gluten, even from a single crumb that gets on their food. This is alarming for those of us who sometimes eat out or who live with someone who loves wheat-based foods. Even occasional consumption of gluten can prevent a celiac's digestive tract from healing.

Although the book was published in 2004, some claims are already out of date. Several people stated that McDonald's fries are gluten-free, but McDonald's now warns that the fries contain traces of both wheat and milk. So readers need to supplement this sort of book with current research.

Personally I became impatient with the people who felt traumatized when they had to give up wheat. (They gave up certain other grains too but these were not missed as much.) I am allergic to over a dozen different foods and if I could eat everything except wheat, rye and barley, I would be thrilled. There were a couple of writers who did not tolerate dairy along with gluten, and I could relate to them a bit more.

The best tip I found in this book was to look for celiac websites before you travel overseas. Many countries have celiac support groups and supposedly some of them list restaurants that can accommodate us. Also, I found a URL in the book for a list of "contaminated products" which should be useful except that it hasn't been updated in four years.

This book is easy to understand. It should increase awareness of celiac disease. For those who need information on coping with this condition, it should be very helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
Superb for anyone diagnosed with celiac's disease or dermatitis herpetiformis or anyone with undiagnosed intestinal problems. As it says on the cover "Millions have it and don't know it."I was one of those undiagnosed for probably 10-15 years.

Divided into chapters, you can select the ones most relevant to your symptoms, situation, or issue. Personal stories are written by every age group from kids through seniors, with valuable information also provided.

Diagnosed folks will find it an inspiration; family and friends can be shown relevant parts to better understand the necessity for a gluten-free lifestyle - and what it feels like to make that change; and people with intestinal problems can raise questions with their doctors based on what they've learned.

The only improvement I would suggest is a glossary of websites for celiac's and DH support and information at the end.There are a couple of them "hidden" within the stories and foreward.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for sufferers
The book is a good read for sufferers needing support.It gives various scenarios, symptoms, and suggestions from those who have been mis-diagnosed for as many as 30 or 40 years.The book does not, however, have much technical discussion of the disease or the protocol for treatment nor the prognosis for recovery or cure.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book - Covers all the bases
I got this book last week and couldn't put it down. After a long struggle getting doctors to believe I wasn't crazy my IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)was finally diagnosed as celiac disease. It was wonderful, comforting and reassuring to read stories from so many others who have gone through what I went through.
The book is extremely well-organized with lots of tips and tricks to help make gluten-free living easier. There are practical tips for traveling, eating out, setting up your kitchen, and planning vacations among other things. It addresses issues that seniors, teenagers, college students, parents of kids with celiac, and young children would face. It even has a piece written by a six year old about their first gluten-free Halloween.
This is the information you need that you will not get from your doctor who has never spent a gluten-free day in his life.
I loved this book and highly recommend it to all those with celiac whether you've just been diagnosed or have had it for a while. ... Read more

Product Description
Remarkable progress has been made in our knowledge of celiac disease, yet the diagnosis is often overlooked. The practical challenge for healthcare professionals is to identify the disease and offer patients a gluten-free diet that will restore most to full health and help to prevent further complications. This comprehensively revised second edition of "Fast Facts: Celiac Disease", written by three international experts, considers: celiac disease in all its forms - typical, atypical, silent, potential and latent; gluten sensitivity, genetic risk and predisposing physiological abnormalities; the variable presentation of disease in both adults and children; associated immune disorders; the puzzle of diagnosis, solved by clinical, serological, histological and genetic investigation; troublesome, and sometimes life-threatening, non-malignant complications; the close links between celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis; the risk of malignancy, its treatment and prognosis; management with a gluten-free diet, and the emotional and social implications of the diet; and, potential new therapies.Highly readable with informative illustrations, "Fast Facts: Celiac Disease" provides an up-to-date account of this common yet easily missed condition. It is an excellent clinical resource for the primary care team, gastroenterologists in training and anyone who wants to know more about this challenging disease. ... Read more

Product Description
This is the leading resource for discovering your wheat allergy or gluten intolerance. For millions of people, bread, pasta, and many other foods are bad for their health. Thousands of people have already come to their own realization that they are healthier without wheat in their diet, but it can be difficult to figure out when most doctors aren t knowledgeable on the topic. This book provides validation for what these people have discovered, and explains how you too can determine whether or not wheat and gluten are making you sick.

In Healthier Without Wheat you learn the difference between celiac disease, non-celiac gluten intolerance, and wheat allergies. You will discover how hundreds of health problems are connected to wheat and gluten reactions and why sorting this out on your own can be more difficult than you might think. You will also discover how you can be gluten intolerant even if you don t have celiac disease, and why non-celiac gluten intolerance can be just as severe as or more severe than celiac disease.

You will also learn how to determine if your infant or child reacts to wheat or gluten. Healthier Without Wheat also covers nutritional deficiencies commonly seen in gluten intolerance, and equally important, what to do if you are avoiding gluten but not getting better. There are many books on living gluten free, but only one on how to determine whether or not you are gluten intolerant or have a reaction to wheat. You should read this book if you or someone you know suffers from any of the following: abdominal pain, chronic anemia (iron deficiency), arthritis, autoimmune diseases, constipation, depression, diarrhea, eczema, fatigue, fibromyalgia, frequent illness, headaches, heartburn, hypoglycemia, irritable bowel syndrome, irritability, migraines, or osteoporosis. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent explanation of difference between celiac, gluten intolerance, and wheat allergies
Science estimates that at least 40 percent of the population is adversely affected by consumption of wheat, rye, and barley because of gluten-containing proteins. The inability to digest these proteins can cause ill health in numerous ways, such as digestive problems, autoimmune diseases, depression and poor mental function, muscle and joint pain, and nutritional deficiencies.

Healthier Without Wheat is a good introduction to the health problems associated with consuming gluten-containing grains including how to tell if your children are sensitive to it. The book's unique contribution to this topic is in providing a detailed explanation of the difference between celiac disease, non-celiac gluten intolerance, and wheat allergy; the genetic and autoimmune tests that can be done to pinpoint the problem; and how to interpret these tests. It is well worth the small investment for this information alone. Otherwise I found the text annoyingly repetitive.

3-0 out of 5 stars Repetitive
While there is much useful information in the book, most of the information is repeated throughout.Want to know the tests for gluten intolerance, celiac, or allergy?The author will tell you about them repeatedly.Want to know which grains have gluten and which don't?The author will give you the list several times.Want to know the signs or symptoms of gluten intolerance?The author will give them to you more than once.When the author is not repeating the same information, he is telling you some basics and stating over and over again that a later chapter will go more into depth on that subject.Not a bad book, but it would have been better had it been half as long, or contained more in-depth information.

5-0 out of 5 stars Informative!
I found this book to be the best without being over the top; not too simplistic, not too technical.It was very informative...so much so that after reading it from the library, I had to own a copy for my personal library!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great guidance, great history, should open a few eyes
Had the pleasure of attended a talk given by Dr. Stephen Wangen and given that I promised my blog readers ([...]) a book not on this topic, I thought I'd share it at Amazon as well.

The short summary is it should be an eye-opening book for anyone. Dr. Wangen has taken up this issue in a previous book entitled The Irritable Bowel Syndrome Solution as well in his clinical practice where he has become a `go-to' person for those with wheat allergies, gluten intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Given I've been on the dietary fringe for some time, it's easy for me to underestimate the extent to which this book pierces deeply entrenched notions about what's `good' and `healthy' for you. Think about it, this book essentially makes the assertion that this staple of life (bread of life) should be treated more like a toxin and should only be consumed as a last resort, given its metabolic effects on the body.

As is often the case with books written by clinicians in active practice, it has more then its fair share of testimonials/case studies. While I understand this approach appeals to lots of people and makes the whole thing less dry for most, I skip over most of them. But they're there for you if you want them.

Found his explanation of the origin of cereal grains and the differences and commonalities among them fascinating. He includes a `family tree' of grains that include all the ones we find in common use today: wheat, oats, corn, rice, spelt, etc.

Having known very little about IBS, celiac disease and the like, it was enlightening to have him clearly delineate the differences among these conditions and state categorically that these `conditions' only persist as long as you consume the offending item (wheat or gluten as the case may be).

The only major issue I had with the book is the repeated reference to an extremely wide range of symptoms that might lead you to consider whether you might have an allergy/intolerance. There were instances where, after I read the list, I wondered what adverse condition was left out. So that's where I'd include a gain of salt. He also spent a lot of time describing the diagnostic methods he uses to make a determination as to what might be at the root of issues you're seeing. Got a sense that these sections were more directed at his peers whose patients might pick up the book and ask their doctor's about it. Wouldn't want to leave out stuff that would clearly show you knew what you were doing since the book is likely to wind up in the hands of other physicians either directly or indirectly.

So, the bottom line is it is well worth the read if you or someone you care about has issues with wheat or gluten. It is also of interest to those who are not so wedded to our revered food staple (bread) that they might be considering giving it up to better their health.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best book I've read about gluten intolerance
This book is an incredible resource for anyone suffering from an adverse reaction to gluten or wheat. Dr. Wangen dispels the theory that celiac disease is the most serious form of gluten intolerance and instead claims that ANY gluten sensitivity can endanger a person's health and must be treated with a strict gluten-free diet.

The doctor describes the differences between celiac disease, non-celiac gluten intolerance and non-gluten wheat allergy. The medical terminology is clearly explained without ever being dumbed down, and there are case studies that further the reader's understanding of the numerous expressions of gluten intolerances and wheat allergies in different people. Additionally, in the back of the book there is a question and answer section that is impressively comprehensive. After reading this book, absolutely all of my questions were answered.

For me, the most helpful part of the book was the flow charts of tests for celiac disease, non-celiac gluten intolerance, wheat allergy and gluten allergy. They broke down the myriad tests into a logical progression of diagnoses. Dr. Wangen also explains the fallibility of certain tests and offers advice for additional testing that can increase a person's chance of getting the most accurate diagnosis. This book is an invaluable resource. I cannot recommend it highly enough. ... Read more

Product Description
For children, a diagnosis of celiac disease and an abrupt change to a gluten-free diet can bring about an overwhelming number of questions and concerns. What is gluten? Why can't I eat cake, cookies, and chicken nuggets like everyone else? What do I tell my friends? Answers to these and many other questions are provided in this book. Written by the mother of a child with celiac disease, who also has the disease herself, this book offers a reassuring look at celiac disease in language that a child can easily understand. This fictional story is based on the real-life experiences many newly diagnosed children face. Five-year-old Emily and her parents wonder why she's not feeling well. Her belly is swollen, and she feels moody and sick. A trip to the doctor raises some concerns and further tests show that Emily has celiac disease. Emily talks about what food she can and cannot eat, how her Mom buys special gluten-free food, and the need to stay on a gluten-free diet at restaurants, birthday parties, friends' houses, school, and camp. With its light-hearted, colorful illustrations, the book helps children to see that having celiac disease is not so scary after all. Emily acknowledges that having celiac disease is sometimes tough, but talking about her feelings with her mom always makes her feel better. She knows that celiac disease is only part of who she is -- she also likes to jump rope, paint, tell jokes, and pick flowers! This book's positive message will be a huge boost to children with celiac disease, especially those who have been recently diagnosed. Ages 3-7 ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Children really enjoyed the book
Facing the realization that my children have food allergies and must learn to eat differently than they are accustomed is a daunting task.This book helped to continue the conversations I've been having with them to understand that they aren't alone with food allergies and that food isn't what makes life fulfilling.This book offered that insight in a way the kids really enjoyed and they ask me to read it to them again and again.Thanks!

4-0 out of 5 stars Eating Gluten Free with Emily
This book is excellent for anyone with a child newly diagnosed with Celiac Disease or for explaining it to your child's friends or classmates.I would like to see it reprinted so that it is easier to find in Canada, and perhaps relaunch with an Ethan instead of Emily.However my kids got a lot out of it and have a better understanding of the disease and the new way of life in our home.Thumbs up!

5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific book!
When my son was diagnosed with Celiac at the age of 4 years, I sought out all the information I could.I especially wanted to find something for my son so he could understand about Celiac and that he wasn't alone.This has been a terrific book in both regards.It is one of his favourite books and he has taken it to school to share with his classmates each year.It is very well received and goes a long way to educate on a child's level and to make others aware of the difficulties a child with Celiac faces in everyday life.Many of the classmates will go home and tell their parents about gluten which in turn has meant several families bringing in gluten-free cupcakes and snacks to the classroom for special events.I've fielded several phone calls and emails over the years from parents wanting to know more about Celiac and how they can include my son. Definitely a great purchase!

Book Description
"I'm no different than any other kid. I m just a GF kid";, says Paris, matter-of-factly. She is the spunky eleven-year-old narrator of this story for kids with celiac disease who must eat gluten-free (GF) foods.
With equal parts humor and directness, Paris* gets right down to business explaining what it is like to have celiac disease. (*Paris's mom wrote the story, full of her daughter's wisecracking comments, and her dad drew the funny, cartoony illustrations.)
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that affects 1 in 133 kids. If you have celiac disease, you cannot tolerate gluten, a substance found in many foods, including--gulp!--cake, cookies, pasta, or pizza.

Don't sweat it. Paris has creative GF solutions for you. She offers tips on what to bring to school, parties, and sleep-overs; where to shop for GF foods at stores and online; and how to choose from among plenty of foods that don't contain gluten, like bananas, yogurt, popcorn, chocolate pudding cups, hamburgers, soda, and more!
Paris explains that you don t have to worry about your friends either. They'll get on board once they understand that eating even a tiny bit of gluten can make you sick, tired, or slow your growth.

In THE GF KID, you'll find everything you need to know to get on with your gluten-free life, including:

What celiac disease is and how you can manage it

How to choose safe, gluten-free foods and what to avoid

Lists of gluten-free foods (and candy!)

Tips for eating away from home (restaurants, school, friends homes, the movies)

Keeping your gluten-free stuff separate from gluteny stuff

Favorite GF recipes

If you're the parent of a preteen or young teen with celiac disease -whether your child is newly diagnosed or has been living with celiac disease for a while -you' ll want to have this friendly and empowering book for your child.
It is also a great read for friends, neighbors, classmates, and teachers who want to be supportive and help your son or daughter be a GF kid. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Such a helpful book for a newly diagnosed Celiac Kid.
This book gives a voice to children with a very serious disease. My daughter has recently been diagnosed with Celiac, she is 11 as well. This book is very basic, but covers the most important aspects of Celiac in the view of a preteen. What they can eat, looking at labels, explaining it to people and their peers, and the unfortunate results of eating gluten. Thank-you. She felt better about herself knowing there is an explaination for the many symptoms she has had. She took the book to school and her teacher is going to share it with the class and use it as part of their health unit. With so many allergies, auto-immune diseases and other diseases facing children today this book helps cover one of them very well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best book to buy when you just find out your child can't eat gluten!
I bought this book for my son over 3 years ago...and I still find him reading it from time to time!

I bought it when we first found out he had Celics Disease and I was on the computer 24/7 finding out all we needed to know. I was determined to make it a fun lifestyle for him. This book made him feel like he was in good company and we love the way the words and illustrations were fun and sketchy. He loves all the ideas of snacks and foods...and what to do when he goes to a sleep-over. My Son is 10 now and is his own advocate, feels great and gained 17lbs. in 2 years and seems to be getting taller every day! (he is still pretty skinny..but we are thrilled overall!)He has been to lots of sleep-overs and birthday parties...and seems totally fantastic with his diet! We give him pancakes, treats, cookies and such so he never feels like his diet is horrible..(plus we want him to gain weight.)This book will give you lots of ideas and websites to visit... but most of all it will help your child feel happy again!

I love this author...and hope she knows how she has helped so many kids. We tell all our newly diagnosed friends to buy this book!

It was cute, informative and funny.Although it was really intended for a bit older readership (maybe tweens) he got a lot of the humor, especially with us reading together.And as an "experienced" Celiac, it wouldn't be very informative for me alone, it was for my son and written with humor that made us both laugh (cute illustrations).And I did get some good ideas for child menu alternatives.

5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific Book!
I was surprised reading over the reviews to find one that said this was not a worthwhile book.I think it is great.I bought it for my daughter a few years ago when it first came out.I used it when I gave a gf homeschool cooking class for her friends to introduce them to what gf foods were.I also found it helpful to have some adults read so they, too, get the full picture of just what we can and can not eat.My niece was just recently diagnosed and I here to order another copy for her and also to help explain what eating gf is like to her younger brother.

5-0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY STUPENDOUS!
My 13 year old son was just diagnosed a few weeks ago, and we have bought multiple books trying to understand it better. I wish I would have bought this book First.It does the best job explaining CD and answered all my sons questions.We find ourselves referring to it again and again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful ... Great for teaching about Celiac Disease.
I have read a lot of books on Celiac Disease, but this Comic Book gives a very concise explanation of the ins and outs of this misunderstood condition.It is written for ANYONE, young or old, to learn about Celiac Disease.

The Doctors at Boston Children's Hospital have done a GREAT job on this Comic Book.I wish I had something like this when my daughter was first diagnosed with CD .

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent! My 12 year old daughter loves it!
I do a lot of research about celiac for my site ([...]) and encountered some info about this comic book a while ago. Today my daughter's doctor at Children's Hospital gave her a copy of the comic book. I think that this is a great publication both because kids will read it and because it's factual and helpful information. In addition to the story there are puzzles and activities. I HIGHLY recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Diversity of Joe Staton
I'm a huge fan of Joe Staton's work on DC Comic's Justice Society/All Star and Green Lantern books. How nice to see Joe and Hilarie team up for an entertaining and informative book that will appeal to and educate children and parents. This work will not only stand the test of time but make a difference. Nice Job! ... Read more
