Book On Gulten

I would like to get a book at the library on celiac disease. My husband doesn't understand how serious this is. Need the book to be short and right to the point about the disease he could has.

Thanks = Nancy

Nancy-

Here are some books, not short per se, but good. Perhaps your hubby can read a chapter or two... All of these can be ordered, or are on amazon .com

One of the best is: Wheat-Free, Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Living by Danna Korn . Another: Gluten-Free for a Healthy Life: Nutritional Advice and Recipes for Those Suffering from Celiac Disease and Other Gluten-Related Disorders by Kimberly A. Tessmer.

There are also a myriad of cookbooks on amazon for gluten-free too.

Good luck!

I liked the "personal stories on celiac". Not very medical. Lots of short anecdotal stories from celiacs of all ages. My dh found it very helpful to understand celiac, though he already understood the technical side of it. (i'm the one with it.)

I just received The Gluten-Free Bible by Jax Peters Lowell from my daughter as a gift for my birthday. Love it!!!! My brother and sis-in-law were visiting and couldn't keep their hands off! I believe this is a new book that just came out this year. Jax Peters Lowell has also written a couple of other books for gluten-free living.

debberdee,

you'll want to be aware that Lowell apparently has some non-trivial misinformation in the book. some of the things she said are not gluten-free are, and it's NOT safe to pick the insides out of a regular sandwhich and eat them - you'll get contaminated.

Thank you Tiffany! I just went to another posting area where celiac3270 talked about the book and Oh my gosh, I feel terrible for suggesting this book. I loved the way Jax wrote and even though I had read the things that you and celiac3270 both mentioned, I chose to disregard them and enjoy the rest of the book. I never thought about the fact that this could hurt someone who hasn't read everything about celiac disease the way I have(my brain hurts from so much reading and study). I am still new to all this as well! I guess I should not post my helpful hints until I KNOW everything about everything! That will be never!!! <_< Anyway, I am truly sorry for not thinking ahead like so many of you do!

It's fine ;) ...I would definitely recommend Wheat Free Worry Free (by Danna Korn)

debberdee, no worries. I would even go so far as to make the argument that if you did find something useful/helpful out of it, then it's a good thing you got it. :-)

I'm so overwhelmed by what book to get also. There are so many & so much contradictory information. I really want a list of regular foods for my husband to eat. Do I have to contact individual companies or individual websites or is there a complete or somewhat complete list of actual store bought foods that he can eat? He was just diagnosed a few days ago & the internet is just plain overwhelming with all of the info out there. I found a magazine called Gluten Free Living. Does anyone know anything about that magazine?

Celiac Sprue Association puts out a Product listing book with foods of all types included and lists pharmacies and all kinds of things that help you select gluten-free foods and products. You have to buy it, but I use it all the time.

I agree that "The Gluten Free Bible" is worth every penny. It's an indispensable reference for gluten-free living. The magazine "Living Without" is good, but the book is a handy, concise guide that covers just about everything. :)

swittenauer-

I definitely recommend 'wheat free, worry free' by dana korn, rather than the 'gluten free bible' by jax. There is a thread on this site where many of discussed the 'glutenfree bible' and most of us agreed that it has misleading information in it. danna's book is extensive and reliable.

I do get 'living without' and love the magazine. 'gluten free living' is good too. i pick that one up at my local organic grocery store.

Its great your husband has you for support!

Something that was helpful to me was going through lots of old posts-especially ones about foods that are safe/aren't safe. It saved me a lot of time and I learned a lot in one place! Then, I could go to the internet, books, etc. from there. Some of the best information I have received has been on this board-much more trustworthy and knowledgable than the doctors I know. It is overwhelming, but once you "get it", I promise it will get easier. And until then, there are MANY people here who would be happy to answer your questions.

Another book I found quite helpful is "Dangerous Grain" by Braly and Hoggan. I think it does a better job than most in trying explain the relationship between celiac and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. I happen to appear to have the latter. Anyway the book has a credible hypothesis of why gluten is bad news plus some good exposure to "related illnesses".

I also liked the "Wheat Free, Worry Free" by Korn, particularly for newbies like me.

    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      What?  Be sure that next endoscopy tests you for lymphoma (cancer) as well!   Seriously.  You need to do some research as your knowledge of celiac disease is lacking.  Did you fail the entire celiac panel?  Or did your doctor/insurance save cash and just order the very good (but does not catch all celiacs) TTG IgA?  You have a family history, a positive biopsy, what more do you need?  You do realize that this is not about just giving up gluten, don't you?  We just had a member join this year who was told years ago that her tests were "inconclusive" and that she now has suffered with lymphoma (cancer)? Ugh!   Endoscopy in 10 years?  Who would even wait 10 years?  This isn't colon cancer and polyps!   Are you talking about a colonoscopy?  Are you even sure you had an endoscopy?   Be sure you have your bones checked too.....and forget the breath.  You might not have any teeth and implants will be out since your bones will be compromised. Sorry, if I come on strong, but when I was diagnosed I had no tummy issues.  A few months later, my bones began breaking.  I was undiagnosed for a long time because of mis-informed doctors.  At least it was not stupidity on my part.   So, I urge you to research this disease more!  Hopefully you'll ward on another autoimmune disorder by remaining gluten free.  Find what celiac blood tests were actually taken!  Even if you do not think you have celiac disease, something has caused villi damage -- like a parasite, milk, or something......even more sinister! Good luck!  
    • Really, Really Foul Breath Post-glutening?
      In addition to eating gluten-free, I attribute the following to knocking out my bad breath once and for all: 1. SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash (this is what really did it for me!) 2. Flonase Nasal Spray 3. Dr. Tung's Tongue Scraper 4. The obviously brushing and flossing twice daily (goes without saying).    
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I went in for an endoscopy to find out if something from my stomach/intestine was causing my bad breath.  A biopsy during that procedure revealed that I had Celiac.  I thought it was strange since I ate pizza, pasta, and other bread/gluten items almost every day without issue, so I decided to confirm the biopsy result with a blood test. I took the blood test twice (once on a high- and once on a low-gluten diet) and it came back negative both times.  I just assumed someone at the earlier biopsy lab must have messed up my analysis or accidently mistaken someone else's biopsy for mine, but after reading this thread it seems like my initial biopsy might have been correct all along. My doctor suggested doing another endoscopy, but I didn't want to foot the bill for that.  Also, my older brother has Celiac which was confirmed by both a biopsy and blood test. Eating less gluten did seem to help a little with my bad breath, but SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash along with Flonase nasal spray and a Dr. Tung's tongue scrapper really did the trick to solve the bad breath issue. I'm just assuming I have Celiac and eating "gluten conscious" until my next endoscopy in about 10 years. If that biopsy comes back positive again, then I'll be strictly gluten-free.  I'm just glad I don't have many symptoms.      
    • Anxiously waiting
      You might ask your doctor if they have a standby/wait list Kal.  Some do that and then they can fit in people if there are cancellations or no-shows.

      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.
