My opinion is that unless it's some medical book that contains celiac disease, it's not going to tell you much that you don't already know. There are a fair number of books, but they all seem to be quite similar: forbidden ingredient lists, how to deal with it, no cheating, what's the disease, etc. You already know that stuff.....celiac disease books are good for newbies, but after the first few months you're beyond them.

"Wheat Free Worry Free" by Dana Korn is absolutely a MUST read!!! Should be available at Amazon.

I've found this one fairly useful - particularly for it's listings:

Gluten-Free Resource Guide

I'm sure there are better out there, but it's a good mix of info, listings, and recipes for me. (The muffin recipe is quite good as well!)

I second the recommendation of Danna Korn's book "Wheat Free, Worry Free" and I'll add "Dangerous Grains" by James Braly and Ron Hoggan. Both are very different and indespensible in any Celia/Gluten Intolerant persons library. You can get them at a lot of different places online, but I know that amazon .com sells them both and when you spend $25 or more you get free shipping. That is where I usually get books, since they tend to also have better prices. Each of these books sells there for only $10.47, but else where for $15 and up. Just go to their bookstore site and do a search for gluten or celiac. Lots of books come up, but most of them are cookbooks. here are some links:

I hope this helps.

God bless,

    • My daughter, who is almost 21 and has celiac disease, was diagnosed with Epilepsy a year ago. Hindsight being 20/20, we realized she had been having seizure since she was a teenager but the random passing out and feelings of being 'out of it' were attributed to dehydration or poor nutrition and sleep habits during numerous trips to the emergency room. In our reading about Epilepsy, I have found some mention of celiac and gluten issue connections and even where a strict adherence to a gluten-free diet provided a lot of improve the with frequency and severity of seizures.  I would be interested to know if anyone else shares this experience.
    • I have also reacted to various Planters products, believing them to be safe because gluten is not listed in the allergens but have had almost identical reactions to yours.  It did not occur to me that I might be getting zapped from them until just recently when I ate some of their Salt and Vinegar almonds and became really ill and then recognized that I had reacted to them before. I have notice in the past few months that the 'Hermans' brand nuts, which have never mentioned wheat in their allergens now carries the 'processed in a plant that processes wheat' disclaimer.  It makes me wonder if all nuts are processed in the same manner and if all nuts and nut products should be considered unsafe? I know that I will not trust the Planters brand any longer regardless of whether wheat is listed or not.
    • I've heard some people say that they're gluten free, and some say they're not.. I had a container of planter's cashews that I ate a few days ago and I haven't been feeling that great since then. I thought I was fine, but yesterday I woke up with a headache and was feeling really gassy all day. Then since last night, every once in a while I'll have some stomach cramps. They last for a few minutes and then go away.. that has happened 3 or 4 times since last night. It seems weird that I wouldn't have a reaction right away though.. or at least within a few hours of eating them. I ate some on thursday and on friday, and I didn't really start to feel sick until saturday. It's been a while since I last got glutened though, so maybe my reaction has changed? Or maybe I'm being paranoid and I just ate too many cashews haha. But that's the only thing I've eaten in the past like 2 weeks that was different. Has anyone else had a problem with planter's nuts?
    • Well, a different doc is checking for wheat allergy not the one who ran the celiac test. Interesting about the lyme and ttg iga, I didn't know that.  So much to muddy the waters with her.  She's been treated for lyme for many years but they keep coming back with other tick borne illnesses that may be infecting her.  But since  the testing is so poor and nothing is solid in her testing, I am needing to look at every avenue I can to try to help her.  It's just not adding up. As a young child she had sensory processing disorder, than PANDAS (reaction to strep), then Lyme.  Was gluten free for many years until we added it back in about 4 years ago.  Then 3 months ago started failing fast with psych symptoms of dissociation, anxiety, fears, unwanted laughter, joint pain, random pain, feeling ill after every meal, severe pain after wheat and dairy combo followed by diarrhea.  I hope we get a good GI who will at the very least be willing to rule out celiac as we are running out of ideas.   I hope after all her testing she will be willing to go gluten-free again regardless of what we find, to see if it will help her.
