Real Life With celiac disease - Excellent Resource Book

Recommended Posts

Real Life with Celiac Disease

Melinda Dennis, MS, RD, LDN Daniel Leffler, MD. MS

The Celiac Center at Beth israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston.

I am reading this book and find it is an excellent resource for us. I've read many books on celiac disease and tons of pretty dry research, :D but this one seems to cover a great deal of information all in one collection.

I am so glad someone on another site mentioned it to me!

Honestly wish I had found it 2 years ago--would have saved me a lot of research time!! :huh:

Articles by more than 50 international experts.

Not "too techie", short enough chapters ... and very enlightening.

Covers just about everything imaginable: the disease process itself, obstacles to healing and solutions,

nutritional advice, dietary advice if you gain weight after getting your absorption back, trouble-shooting other food intolerances, elimination diets, depression and anxiety, related AI conditions, celiac and diabetes, infants and teens, eating disorders at celiac disease, etc. I was thrilled to see Dr. Gaundalini talk favorably about using probiotics.

I highly recommend it.

Cheers, IH

I read it. Consider it my bible of celiac disease. I will recommend it to my GI/ PCP so we will be on equal level.

 

Just to follow up.

To date, my PCP (of 14 months) won't read this book.  He said it's not his job, has no interest or time in reading books on specific diseases and tells me to direct my questions regarding celiac/gluten issues to my GI Doctor.

I got this on IH's recommendation and it is excellent. I would say that the chapters are short and self contained enough to copy and pass to family and friends (and more receptive doctors perhaps) to explain certain aspects of the condition without being overwhelming.

Definitely recommend
