A Personal Touch On....Celiac has done a great job with their book on celiac disease. They used the format that you are speaking of.

Kaiti I think that a book is a wonderful idea. I have noticed many of your postings. You are a smart and beautiful young woman. Put you beautiful face on the cover, it will get attention. I'm glad you are going to spread the word about this hidden disease that doctors don't want to acknowledge because they can't get kickbacks from the drug companies. My doc threw a major fit :angry: and had a meltdown :angry: when I told him I was feeling better from enzymes. He called it <_< hocus pocus... I only stopped because of the cost factor.

I would share my story with you. Feel free to email me regarding what you are exactly looking for.

I noticed you have just been diagnosed with Graves Disease this March. I'm so sorry! I also have a serious thyroid problem too. Are you on thyroid medication? I'm having a hard time with it finding a balance in my system...

I wish you the very best with your quest and if I can help in anyway (I can design you a web site) or etc., please feel free to contact me. :)

I've been writing articles for my local health food co op for over a year now, and a lot of people keep telling me that I should write a book. I'd love to, but I don't really have that much time to devote to that! Have you thought about having a co-writer or something to that effect??? Just a thought! :D :D :D

Anyway, Since I've already got these articles written (and there is nothing saying I can't use them in a book) would you be interested in seeing what I've got so far? I don't know if you'd want to use it in your endeavor, or if you have any suggestions for a direction that I might go with it. Feel free to pm me or e-mail me at nisla@comcast.net

Also anyone who has any suggestions on things they would like to see in a book...

Any of the common questions that get asked. An appendix with safe/forbidden foods.... what tests to tell the doctor about.... maybe a few recipes for bread, pizza dough, cookies, and the more common "but I can't give that up!!!" foods. Would be good to mention the gluten-friendly food companies, but that could become outdated pretty quickly.

You could also see if any of the gluten-free food companies would give you coupons to put in the book, or with the book.

That was one thing I was wondering about...I think I am going to put them in it and say this is correct to my knowledge but companies change their policies frequently and I will put the #'s by the company name as well.

You should have a list of some of the symptoms and how to get tested if you think that you might have the disease, and also a FAQ section because people have a lot of questions, and I know that you can't answer all of them in a book, but thebasic questions are the most helpful.

Yeah I have sections on symptoms, complications of ignoring the diet, cross contamination, a section for people with friends and loved ones with it, how to get tested& the diagnosis process,treatment-gluten free diet, personal experiences with celiac, and some other sections with manufacturers numbers and so forth. Thanks for the suggestion...helps to know what people want to read. :D
