I would like to get a book at the library on celiac disease. My husband doesn't understand how serious this is. Need the book to be short and right to the point about the disease he could has.

Thanks = Nancy

Nancy-

Here are some books, not short per se, but good. Perhaps your hubby can read a chapter or two... All of these can be ordered, or are on amazon .com

One of the best is: Wheat-Free, Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Living by Danna Korn . Another: Gluten-Free for a Healthy Life: Nutritional Advice and Recipes for Those Suffering from Celiac Disease and Other Gluten-Related Disorders by Kimberly A. Tessmer.

There are also a myriad of cookbooks on amazon for gluten-free too.

Good luck!

I liked the "personal stories on celiac". Not very medical. Lots of short anecdotal stories from celiacs of all ages. My dh found it very helpful to understand celiac, though he already understood the technical side of it. (i'm the one with it.)

I just received The Gluten-Free Bible by Jax Peters Lowell from my daughter as a gift for my birthday. Love it!!!! My brother and sis-in-law were visiting and couldn't keep their hands off! I believe this is a new book that just came out this year. Jax Peters Lowell has also written a couple of other books for gluten-free living.

debberdee,

you'll want to be aware that Lowell apparently has some non-trivial misinformation in the book. some of the things she said are not gluten-free are, and it's NOT safe to pick the insides out of a regular sandwhich and eat them - you'll get contaminated.

Thank you Tiffany! I just went to another posting area where celiac3270 talked about the book and Oh my gosh, I feel terrible for suggesting this book. I loved the way Jax wrote and even though I had read the things that you and celiac3270 both mentioned, I chose to disregard them and enjoy the rest of the book. I never thought about the fact that this could hurt someone who hasn't read everything about celiac disease the way I have(my brain hurts from so much reading and study). I am still new to all this as well! I guess I should not post my helpful hints until I KNOW everything about everything! That will be never!!! <_< Anyway, I am truly sorry for not thinking ahead like so many of you do!

debberdee, no worries. I would even go so far as to make the argument that if you did find something useful/helpful out of it, then it's a good thing you got it. :-)

I'm so overwhelmed by what book to get also. There are so many & so much contradictory information. I really want a list of regular foods for my husband to eat. Do I have to contact individual companies or individual websites or is there a complete or somewhat complete list of actual store bought foods that he can eat? He was just diagnosed a few days ago & the internet is just plain overwhelming with all of the info out there. I found a magazine called Gluten Free Living. Does anyone know anything about that magazine?

Celiac Sprue Association puts out a Product listing book with foods of all types included and lists pharmacies and all kinds of things that help you select gluten-free foods and products. You have to buy it, but I use it all the time.

I agree that "The Gluten Free Bible" is worth every penny. It's an indispensable reference for gluten-free living. The magazine "Living Without" is good, but the book is a handy, concise guide that covers just about everything. :)

swittenauer-

I definitely recommend 'wheat free, worry free' by dana korn, rather than the 'gluten free bible' by jax. There is a thread on this site where many of discussed the 'glutenfree bible' and most of us agreed that it has misleading information in it. danna's book is extensive and reliable.

I do get 'living without' and love the magazine. 'gluten free living' is good too. i pick that one up at my local organic grocery store.

Its great your husband has you for support!

Something that was helpful to me was going through lots of old posts-especially ones about foods that are safe/aren't safe. It saved me a lot of time and I learned a lot in one place! Then, I could go to the internet, books, etc. from there. Some of the best information I have received has been on this board-much more trustworthy and knowledgable than the doctors I know. It is overwhelming, but once you "get it", I promise it will get easier. And until then, there are MANY people here who would be happy to answer your questions.

Another book I found quite helpful is "Dangerous Grain" by Braly and Hoggan. I think it does a better job than most in trying explain the relationship between celiac and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. I happen to appear to have the latter. Anyway the book has a credible hypothesis of why gluten is bad news plus some good exposure to "related illnesses".

I also liked the "Wheat Free, Worry Free" by Korn, particularly for newbies like me.

    • Love reading this story as it is rare (I think) to find someone else with the swallowing issues!  Hate that this is your experience however!   My daughter also has the swallowing issues and it got so severe (we had no idea about Celiac) that she had to do intensive therapy to learn how to swallow again.  It got better but never resolved.  Once she went gluten-free it got way better though a recent exposure to oats caused it to flare up again.  Do you mind me asking - Has your swallowing issues 100% resolved being gluten-free?  Does it ever actually go away and stay away or will it always pop up from time to time?
    • I will say what everyone else says and get tested again with the endoscope and biopsy to confirm, you will need to be on gluten for 12 weeks for blood test 2 weeks for endoscope at least a slice of bead a day.  The thing about celiac is many symptoms can be quite minor, hell even before I had my MAJOR symptoms show I had some of the other issues show up in my every day life and I just thought it was normal.  Regardless if you keep eating gluten with celiac disease it will slowly eat away at your body internally til it does become a problem. Celiac is a autoimmune disease that reacts to the gluten proteins, and has misdirected attacks on your own body internally by mistake trying to kill the gluten. Now the damage can lead to all kinds of other auto immune diseases, random allergies, food intolerance, and even cancer.   I suggest if you do have it, stay on the gluten-free diet, your just basically changing brands there are many gluten-free food versions of everything now days. Be thankful you got this early, I developed issues with dairy, corn, peanuts, and a whole list of others along with another autoimmune disease Ulcerative Colitis that makes it so I can not eat sugars or carbs or my intestines swell.  Getting on a gluten-free diet before your damage progresses will not only keep you healthier for longer, and let you live a pretty normal life but also save you from this pain and very limited diet if the damage progresses too much. As to your fatigue, you changed over to gluten-free diet, you stopped eating a bunch of the Fortified foods, and depending on the route you took of either whole foods ore more processed foods. You could be eating to many empty carbs, starches, and not enough nutrients. OR if you took the whole foods approach you be lacking in your daily calorie intake or not the right ratio of nutrients. You might have to supplement a few of them.
    • REALLY odd call out here, I am attending a anime convention called A-Fest in Dallas come August, I need someone to split the room with it who is gluten-free. I take extra precautions, I COOK all the food, bring only CERTIFIED foods into the room, The room will be Gluten Free, Corn Free, Dairy Free, Peanut Free. I am trying to find someone to split the room cost with, that would be safe to be around I CAN NOT AFFORD to get sick at one of these things, it is one of my few joys left in life and get very paranoid around them. So I need someone who is also gluten-free to make sure the room stays safe (YES I have done with with a non celiac with the rules down and well stuff happens so not chancing it). Room split is food coverage comes to $400 if it is just two people.  4 day convention, I will arrange a meal plan around your diet as long as it is free of my allergens. I will also provide various snacks, baked goods, and even stuff to take home with you.   https://animefest.org/ ^Convention info.
    • Hi Jennifer, This thread might have some information that would help you.   Your doctors are pretty lame IMHO.  Perhaps you can find a celiac group in your area that has local meetings for support.  They might also suggest a different doctor who knows how to treat celiac patients.
