Wheat-Free Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy, Gluten-Free Living
by Danna Korn
This book is very informative and basically covers everything to do with celiac disease. Although there is a lot of information that I already knew (from the internet, doctor, nutritionist) in the book, there was a ton of information that I didn't know. I enjoyed it anyway!
I've heard of the book Against the Grain but I haven't read it.
Diagnosed with Celiac Disease in March 2004
Postitive tTg Blood Test, December 2003
Positive Biopsy, March 3, 2004

The first book is a compilation of different persons experiences with Celiac Disease and how they found out they had it , what their lives were like before they were diagnosed, the problems they had just to get diagnosed and how their lives have improved since going gluten-free. An excellent book and clearly showed how no two peoples symptoms are the same which is the very reason its so difficult to diagnose. It gave me the fortitude I needed to continue to fight for better answers from the medical profession than their normal platitudes and helped me realize that these same drs should not be dismissing me because my symptoms were not the "classic" symptoms. I'd recommend this book to everyone who has questions about celiac disease.
The second book is a cross reference to ingredients in most foods and shows how gluten can be hidden in the normal day-to-day foods that we eat. And it also has a list of all companies that manufacture gluten-free products and how to reach them - (addresses, web-sites, products they offer, etc). I use it like a bible when I have questions about what's in that product I'm purchasing. Unfortunately, its too big to stick in my pocket-book which is a real-downer when food shopping!
Check them out! and it'll help you understand the needs of your friend.
