I am reading this book and find it is an excellent resource for us. I've read many books on celiac disease and tons of pretty dry research, but this one seems to cover a great deal of information all in one collection.
I am so glad someone on another site mentioned it to me!
Honestly wish I had found it 2 years ago--would have saved me a lot of research time!!
Articles by more than 50 international experts.
Not "too techie", short enough chapters ... and very enlightening.
Covers just about everything imaginable: the disease process itself, obstacles to healing and solutions,
nutritional advice, dietary advice if you gain weight after getting your absorption back, trouble-shooting other food intolerances, elimination diets, depression and anxiety, related AI conditions, celiac and diabetes, infants and teens, eating disorders at celiac disease, etc. I was thrilled to see Dr. Gaundalini talk favorably about using probiotics.
I highly recommend it.

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; finally DXed on 11/01/10. I figured it out myself. Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat.

I read it. Consider it my bible of celiac disease. I will recommend it to my GI/ PCP so we will be on equal level.
Just to follow up.
To date, my PCP (of 14 months) won't read this book. He said it's not his job, has no interest or time in reading books on specific diseases and tells me to direct my questions regarding celiac/gluten issues to my GI Doctor.
