Good Books To Read About Celiac?

Recommended Posts

My 2.5 yr old daughter just had her bx, and I just have a feeling that she has celiac...results back on Tuesday. Anyway, I'm looking for suggestions of a good book to learn about celiac...specifically for my mom who watches my daughter a few days a week. I spend time online, but my mom doesn't go online. I need something that explains the basics of celiac disease, the diet, and the importance of following the diet. She's already said to me..."she can have regular pizza once in a while, right?" She just doesn't understand, and I think it would sink in better if she could read a book about it. Thanks!

Celiac Disease, a Hidden Epedemic by Dr. Peter Green, is a good book. The Celiac Sprue Association will send out an information packet for free. I had one sent to my sister.

I have the book "Gluten free for Dummies" by Danna Korn. It is written for anyone who wants to learn about the gluten-free lifestyle, and explains things very simply. It would be very helpful for you and your mom.

I agree, Danna Korn explains things very simply and also with tasteful humor that makes it easy for anyone to understand. She also has some good simple recipes listed that your mom could make such as super easy peanut butter cookies etc.
