My opinion is that unless it's some medical book that contains celiac disease, it's not going to tell you much that you don't already know. There are a fair number of books, but they all seem to be quite similar: forbidden ingredient lists, how to deal with it, no cheating, what's the disease, etc. You already know that stuff.....celiac disease books are good for newbies, but after the first few months you're beyond them.

"Wheat Free Worry Free" by Dana Korn is absolutely a MUST read!!! Should be available at Amazon.

I've found this one fairly useful - particularly for it's listings:

Gluten-Free Resource Guide

I'm sure there are better out there, but it's a good mix of info, listings, and recipes for me. (The muffin recipe is quite good as well!)

I second the recommendation of Danna Korn's book "Wheat Free, Worry Free" and I'll add "Dangerous Grains" by James Braly and Ron Hoggan. Both are very different and indespensible in any Celia/Gluten Intolerant persons library. You can get them at a lot of different places online, but I know that amazon .com sells them both and when you spend $25 or more you get free shipping. That is where I usually get books, since they tend to also have better prices. Each of these books sells there for only $10.47, but else where for $15 and up. Just go to their bookstore site and do a search for gluten or celiac. Lots of books come up, but most of them are cookbooks. here are some links:

I hope this helps.

God bless,

    • Sorry you're feeling poorly Have you seen this page: https://www.peoplespharmacy.com/2015/07/27/getting-off-ppis-can-be-a-challenge/ I think you can get gluten free DGL, maybe worth a try?
    • I could be wrong but Methotrexate is an immune suppressant so it may affect Celiac testing. I have seen this mistake made with other people with RA. It may be that the only way you will know if it will help is to continue eating gluten free for awhile and see how well it does with the pain levels you have.  Or...have the biopsy.  But, again, will the medication affect that also?
    • Welcome! YES! Some of us who have problems with gluten do not test positive to celiac tests. There is a term for this, non celiac gluten sensitive NCGS and this could explain your symptoms. Having said that, it would be a good idea if you hunted down the actual results of your celiac tests and posted them here. It's possible that your doctors didn't perform the full range of tests and some celiacs only test positive to one of these.  I would first double check on the tests, but once that's resolved you could keep a food diary, a very simple not of what you eat, when you eat it and how you feel. You then introduce a new food perhaps one week at a time and monitor the results. I would start with dairy but I don't know that there's a right or wrong answer. Best of luck. I think regardless of testing you've probably found an answer and that you will probably want to stay gluten free.  Either way you've found a good site and you will have lots of support if you need it Good luck.

    • I am not sure that the thought that your antibodies go down because there is nothing left to attack is true.  If you reach that point, then you should continually have to increase your dosage of thyroid hormone.  You would need full replacement dose that is given to those whose thyroid's have been removed.  I am no doctor so I could be totally wrong. My thyroid antibody number went to 1200 before my diagnosis of Celiac.  I kept my TSH almost suppressed and went by T3 and T4 numbers only.  After about 8 years gluten free, my antibodies went into the normal range.  I figured it was because my inflammation levels went way down after removing the cause of it.....gluten. I now take a smaller dose of thyroid hormone as my regular dose than before I was diagnosed with Celiac.
