I would like to add to my library of Gluten Free Books and Cookbooks. I need suggestion for my girls to give me as gifts.

I have "Cooks Fast and Healthy" Bette Hagman and "Wheat-Free, Worry Free" by Danna Korn.

I have heard yes and no for the "Gluten-Free Bible" :blink:

What books would you recommend.

Thanks Lisa B.

Anyone read???

"FOOD ALLERGIES AND FOOD INTOLERANCE"

A COMPLETE GUIDE TO THEIR IDENTIFICATION AND TREATMENT.

By JONATHAN BROSTOFF, MD & LINDA GAMIN.

One of the girls in the allergy doc's office handed this to me when I was waiting for my food allergy shot the other day. It looked good. It had info on IGA IGG and more. I will get it if anyone in Celiac-cyberspace gives it a thumbs up.

I'll ask Santa for it for Xmas.

Do you blogg? I do.

I read Gluten Free Bible when I was first diagnosed and found it both informative and humorous at the same time. I would recomend it.

There is a lot of debate on the Gluten Free Bible not being reliable....check out the reading section of this forum about members posts on this book. It is not Good! Jax Peters Lowell does not check her facts.

Best book I found is "A Personal Touch on Celiac Disease" put out by "A Personal Touch Publishing" and written by celiacs (some chapters even written by kids with celiac about their first "gluten free halloween" etc. Barns And Noble can order it in for $15. Plus a good book is "Kids With Celiac" by Dana Korn (also her Wheat Free, Worry Free" is a top fave on this site)!

What a good gift idea! The only thing is, I would like to ask for books on quick and easy gluten free cooking. I hate to cook, so if you have any suggestions that don't involve getting "special" foods that you only can get from health food stores, I would like to know about them! I have been using the crockpot a lot more now. Reynold's even makes slow cooker liners that you put in the crockpot and when you are done all you do is pull out the liner and throw it away. No clean up!!

    • Kaiser offers the full panel, but a primary care MD can not order it -- only a GI.  Again, a visual is not needed.  Damage is usually severe if it can be seen visually (e.g. Scalloping, etc.).  Villi are microscopic though.   Search through the Kaiser directory and find one who has some mention of celiac disease in his bio.  Now, that you have been referred to a GI, you can schedule another appointment on your own.  Wait first for the pathologist's report.  They might not put it on the patient portal, so get a hard copy for your records.  If it is negative and they took four or biopsies, you will have your answer. Then you can consider trialing the diet.  If they did not take enough samples, ask for the DGP and EMA tests, including the control test IGA deficiency (which affects 10% of celiacs, but do not quote me on this).  You could wait a few years until you think damage is severe enough to find.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose.  It can develop at anytime.   Don't forget you might have a gluten sensitivity too and not celiac disease.   Kaiser responds well to requests in writing.  Try the patient portal first before a registered letter.  If they are not following the standard level of care, they are at risk for a lawsuit.  Be nice.  Say something lame in your letter like,  "We had such a nice short visit, so I  forgot to ask ....blah, blah, blah." My own relatively new PCP is still learning about celiac disease.  That is okay.  At least she has an open mind.    
    • It is gluten free...I eat it regularly and have had no issues and it tastes yummy. 😀
    • A quick update: I emailed my primary doctor and she is on the same page as the GI doctor, saying the Endoscopy looks normal. Even before we've gotten the biopsy back.  By the way, I should mention I'm dealing with Kaiser in the Bay Area, CA and everything I've found about Kaiser on these forums is horrible and similar to my own experience.  I specifically asked about all the components of the full celiac panel and that I would like to get it and all she said was: "The lab tests are not perfect. Although they may indicate an increased risk for celiac, they are not as specific as the biopsy." So, now we should just ignore the positive IgG? How am I supposed to know if I'm IgA deficient if they don't test for that? I replied and asked again and she said that Kaiser doesn't offer the full panel. Why not? And I said I want vitamin and iron tests and no reply to that yet.              
    • Thank you so much for all the help and support you have given me. I cannot thank you enough. I am ever so sorry to post again here but wondered if I could check with you about this. When at work, I very rarely get chance to eat a lot and so have always been eating the Milky Way UK bars, which I believe contain gluten or barley. I usually have around 6 of these as they tide me over until getting home. I also have two slices of bread on a morning. I was wondering whether this would be sufficient as I am worried in case I haven't had enough gluten?  Thank you for everything and I wanted to apologise for being a nuisance on here.
    • Thanks Matt I appreciate your response and assistance getting " moved to my own thread" thanks so much. I do have the results of my labs they took and am unsure which labs are which so I will try to attach them and perhaps someone can help me decode them.😂   Thanks again Heidi
