I LOVE writing, and I thought, why don't I write a children's book that explains celiac disease? I don't think I'm "medically smart" enough to write one for adults. Then I saw the post that was encouraging celiac3270 to write a teen celiac disease book. I know an author with published books, who can certainly help me get this published. If anyone has anything they'd like to see in a children's celiac disease book that explains what celiac disease is, how it effects kids socially and stuff all explained in very simple words, please tell me because I'll getting to work on it today!
Also, celiac3270, if you are actually interested in writing one, tell me and I'll see what I can do, because the author I know would be happy to help. (I'm not putting his/her name up here because I don't think he/she would want that.)


Thank you!

Jackie: Will your book be fiction or non fiction?

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

:D Please include in your book words that kids can actually use when asked by their peers why they can't eat something. Giving kids the words they need to use when others ask about their disease is very helpful. Kinda like giving them words to use when someone offers drugs to them. Maybe your book could even give particular situations and then words for the child to use. Comic strip form for these situational parts? Good luck.

I agree w/using things kids can actually say when asked by peers about eating something. In our instance a book that explains that even if you don't get a stomach ache (or other "external" symptom) after eating gluten, you are still hurting your insides.

Cool idea! Good luck!

Thanks everyone! I will for sure give kids words to use like, "No thank you, I can't eat that or I will get very sick." Or something. Simple and effective. has anyone ever seen the book, "No Nuts for Me!"? My sister read it because she's allergic to nuts, and that's what the book is about. Kids allergic to nuts. It's a short kiddie book.
