Celiac Disease: The First Year by Jules Dowler Shepard.
Well- written and full of practical advice, including recipes, all from a celiac's perspective.
I really liked this book too. It's a good book for coping with a diagnosis and the next steps to take.
I just finished reading "Healthier without Wheat" by Stephen Wagnen. He covers both Celiac and NCGI in the book. He describes a lot of the medical issues but in laymen's terms. I liked that he acknowledged a lot of the NCGI issues as well as the actual Celiac stuff.
Blood tested 8-11 positive, Biopsy 9-11 negative (long story, most gastro drs. are morons)
gluten-free 7-11, Dairy Free (mostly) 8-13 - Everything but butter. Can't live life without butter....
DS - negative blood test, just diagnosed with ADD and other learning disorders, DNA test positive - high risk
Issues related to gluten: depression, low iron, hair loss, positive ana test for lupus, low vitamin D, headache, sinusitis, environmental allergies, brain fog, GI problems, weight gain....the list goes on....
