Celiac World Loses Renowned Gluten-Free Author

Celiac.com 05/22/2013 - Tragedy has struck the celiac community when an established author's life was taken while crossing a street in Calgary, Canada. She was a popular published author by the name of Wendy Turnball. She was made famous by her first book, Canadian Bestseller "Gems of Gluten-Free Baking."

Photo: CC--Andrea_NguyenWendy was diagnosed with celiac as an infant and was immediately put on a gluten-free diet. Physicians told her parents it was a childhood disease which she would outgrow. In her thirties infection reactivated her celiac symptoms.

Wendy was passionate about baking gluten-free foods that could stand up to regular foods. She developed her very own whole-grain flours, which she called GEMS flour. She's left behind a gluten-free baking staple for celiacs everywhere to enjoy.

Celiac used to be considered a children's disease - so, by the old standards, you are a bit old to be diagnosed. We now know that Celiac can start at any age. I don't know if you are a male or a female, but untreated Celiac can lead to miscarriages and infertility. And all the other stuff...
