Looking For The Ideal Info To Send To My Family
0

3 posts in this topic

Hello :)

My doctor wants me to inform all of my first and second degree relatives that I have been diagnosed with celiac disease so that they can get tested. I really don't want to call all of them though :blink: So... I was thinking that I would just print up some info and mail it to everyone.

Can anyone recommend a really comprehensive but easy to understand article? I don't want it to be too simple because I've already had a few relatives saying things like, "Oh, well I can eat wheat and I don't feel any different so I don't think I've got it" (when they have thyroid disease, bipolar disorders, diabetes, etc.) I'd like to find an article that says something like, "Look! You might have it and not have the typical GI symptoms! It's worth being tested or else your asymptomatic condition could turn into ..."

Know what I mean? :huh:

I have a whole bunch of links, but they are all either too long or too complicated or too simple. I'd love to see some suggestions, particularly if you've used a specific article to introduce celiac disease to the people in *your* life.

Thanks!

- Michelle :wub:

Well, in my family we have a pretty good grapevine so I only told about 4 people and the rest took care of itself. I sent the articles from csaceliacs because I liked the way they explained things. Then my aunt (who is the head of a library at a medical school) inundated the whole family with about a million med journal articles.
