D., and long-time celiac advocate Scott Adams, founder and owner of Celiac.com, the largest and longest running website that caters to the gluten-free lifestyle, have joined forces to bring you a new, broad spectrum book about the many facets of gluten-induced illnesses and how to avoid or reverse them.

"Hoggan & Adams have brought together a wide range of viewpoints at multiple levels. This book should appeal to a broad spectrum of readers who want a full and enriched perspective." --Robert Machon, July 12, 2010

Newly diagnosed celiac and gluten sensitive patients complain about conflicting information, from the safety of oats to the hazards of older grains. Cereal Killers has the answers to these and many other questions. Even seasoned members of the gluten-free community want a better understanding of their illness and the bounds of a safe diet. These questions are also addressed.

Common errors, common misconceptions about the diet, and unusual insights into the dynamics of inflammation, disease, and recovery are all offered by one or more of the many voices that form this unique offering. But the information runs much deeper than that. Cereal Killers explores subtle nuances of immune reactions, often overlooked signs and symptoms of celiac disease, and a host of elements of associated illnesses that miraculously clear up on the diet. Questions about non-celiac gluten sensitivity are addressed in detail, along with explorations of what signs and symptoms should signal testing for gluten sensitivity and how much credence these indicators of disease should be given.

In all, readers are offered a rich resource for understanding the importance of dietary compliance along with the cracks in the system through which patients sometimes slip because of current deficiencies in the understanding of gluten sensitivity and celiac disease.

Jointly published by CreateSpace, Cereal Killers ISBN: 978-1449918200 is available through Celiac.com, and quality book sellers such as Blackbond Books.

@jddh So...did the restricted diet you were going to implement work (FODMAP or Whole Foods)? I recall that you were mis-diagnosed at one point with refractory celiac disease, but it was later determined that you were getting trace amounts of gluten in your diet. If you are not catching colds, I assume that you have healed from the damages of celiac disease? I hope so!!! ?

Peter is correct. You do have a positive so that warrants further investigation. Here is a link supporting our comments: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/are-raised-dgp-igg-levels-an-early-sign-of-celiac-disease/ http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf Does she have celiac disease? You will never know for sure without an endoscopy. Even then, there is a chance the biopsies are negative, but keep in mind that she might just be starting to develop celiac disease or that the damage was not captured (the small intestine is the size of a tennis court if spread out). Personally, I tested negative on all but the DGP IgA, yet I had moderate to severe intestinal damage. The celiac blood tests are good, but they do not catch all celiacs, some celiacs can even test negative to ALL the blood tests. Consider yourself fortunate that your doctor ordered several of the tests and not just the screening TTG IgA (very good, keeps cost down, but does not catch all). The DGP is the preferred test in small children. I do not know why it caught me because I am old, but it did! Confusing, isn't it? I wish there was an easier way to diagnose, but we have to work with what we have available to us.

Thank you for your reply, though it's not necessarily what I wanted to hear, it is what I was thinking.
