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.

I know I needed the confirmation. My hubby went gluten free per the very poor advice from my allergist and his GP. It worked, but we really do not know if he has celiac disease. He refuses to do a gluten challenge and I do not blame him. We do know that gluten makes him sick. He has been gl...
