Hello. I am a new member.My 26 year old son was just diagnosed with celiac disease.

I am trying to find a uncomplicated good book for him to read to tell him all he needs to know about it.He is following a gluten free diet.But he seems to think that is all he has to do. I have been researching and I know that is not the case. Every day I see new things he is not suppose to eat or use.I am so worried about him.

Since he is 26, he tells me he is not a baby etc etc. But I think he needs to take it more seriously. So I figured if I can find a book that is straight to the point of what to do and not to do, maybe he will read it.

Thank you for any suggestions.

no, really, he has the big thing down. the ONLY treament for celiac is a gluten free diet. i reccomend Dr peter green's hidden epedemic book. it has a blue and green and white cover, it's really the best.

Dr. Greens book is really good but it has alot of technical info.

I read Living Gluten Free for Dummie by Dana Korn first and then read Dr. Green's book. The for dummies book has great info and not so overwhelming to read. I got basic info from that and then got more in depth from Dr. greens. You can buy both together on Amazon for around 30 fo rthe pair!

I found The Gluten Free Bible by Jax Peters Lowell very informative. However, it's full of product lists that are out of date. Any gluten-free product list will be out of date the day after it's produced. It's the nature of the beast. But the book was good about covering ALL aspects of a gluten-free life (like dating) and it's conversational tone was very entertaining.

Darleen,

Just wanted to welcome you to the board. You are a good mom for being involved!

I agree-Dr. Green's book is a wonderful resource. It covers everything!

Encourage him to come on here and read. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

Best of luck to you and your son!

(By the way, I am 26, and having a supportive mom who cooks/bakes wonderful gluten free meals for me when I'm at home is the best thing in the world!)

    Your doctor would run a blood tests (ask for full celiac panel) and then confirm with endoscopy and biopsy celiac doesn't always show up on endoscopy and sometimes the biopsy is what confirms.
