Best Book About Celiac Disease
0

9 posts in this topic

Okay guys, I thought something needed to go here, and I have to say that my all time favorite book about celiac disease is Danna Korn's book "Wheat Free, Worry Free".

What is the best book about Celiac Disease/Gluten Intolerance that you have read??

The book "Dangerous Grains" by James Braly M.D. and Ron Hoggan M.A. is EXCELLENT!

Ummm......I would have to agree with you, Wheat-Free Worry-Free was pretty good.

There is a new book comming out this spring called "A personal touch on Celiac Disease", a few of us on this message board have put stories and recipes in it so you should look for it when it comes out!

the best (ok, the only one, but it's extremely good) book i ever read on wheat intolerance/wheat allergy is "Against the Grain," by Jax Peters Lowell. I've probably read through the entire thing 4 or 5 times, and it is great!! Not only does it have tons of information, tips, & recipes, ...it is HILARIOUS! Reading it makes me feel like maybe i'm not the biggest weirdo for having to dissect my food in front of everyone at a dinner party. :) I swear, any celiac/wheat intolerant person who reads this will finally be able to laugh out loud at all the funny/eccentric things (i.e. eating caviar w/ a spoon, bringing your own rice pasta to Italian restaurants) that one tends to go through with gluten/wheat intolerance. Especially after you've just been diagnosed (as I had), it's great to know that there's someone else out there who has the same annoying issues as i do (i.e. difficulty eating out at restaurants, dining with friends), and can offer some good advice on how to cope.

I enjoyed the humor in Against the Grain too but I think it is important to not that it was published quite a while ago so some of the nutritional information offered is no longer accurate.

I appreciated he down to earth approach for asking for what you need prepared the way you need it without apologizing for it. She is really good!!

"The Gluten Free Kitchen" by Roben Ryberg is also a very good book.

My husband and I used to eat out at least 4 nights a week. That was our lifestyle. I am adjusting to cooking my own food and eating at home. It is a major challenge but I am excited about it because I am already feeling soooo much better.

I need to add that this board is a real lifesaver! I love it. Thanks everyone for your knowledgeable support. It is great. The one thing I have learned very quickly is to not take other people's word for what I can and can't eat. I appreciate that frequently people post the website or book where they got their information so I can check it out for myself.

My attitude is that I am not giving up one thing that I don't have to but I am also not putting anything in my mouth that will rob me of my health. That means doing a lot of research and playing private detective about everything I eat but it is worth it.

I have to agree with Jessica that Bette Hagaman's Cookbooks are my favorites. It is good to have good info, but the recipies are what I enjoy. She certainly knows her stuff. My wife found a bunch of them on Ebay for a little less $$ as well. It is nice to save money when all the gluten-free flour is expensive out here.

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
