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

    • Which D3 supplements aren't made from lanolin?   I had skin inflammation in the past from topical lanolin. I'm not sure if processed ingested lanolin in D3 should concern me, but thought I'd consider a  non lanolin version.
    • Is your concern the social aspects of eating on the job, or not always feeling well enough to get out the door? I'm in health care, and just happened to be in home care when I was diagnosed.  It actually works well, as I make my own hours, and can reschedule visits as need be. I would think you could complete your MBA easily, maybe part time if necessary.  It's not clear what your career path might be ....counseling?   Industrial psych? Research? Once you are established (and you can do that part time if need be, to start), you will have more options for flexed or reduced hours.  If the social aspects of eating are an issue, you can always excuse yourself at meals, drive to a pleasant location, and eat in your car. Or go for a walk and find a place to eat. For work luncheons,  I just have a beverage or pick up a piece of fruit, so I give the appearance of participating. 
    • Can you tolerate nut milks? I find macadamia milk the gentlest on my stomach. The only brand I've seen here in the US is Milkadamia, and it comes sweetened or not, and fortified with some vitamins. I think this brand is from Australia. Or you could make your own. As for time, it can take awhile, and that seems to be more the norm. A recent new dairy intolerance that peaked May 3 has made me sicker than celiac ever did. Almost 3 months later and I am just starting to get better and my fatigue is improving. I had the usual ups and downs, inadvertent exposures, and trial and error.  I had only mild symptoms (comparitively speaking) at my celiac diagnosis 4 years ago, yet it took 6 months to a year for them to fully resolve after going gluten-free. It's hard to be patient when your GI tract is off, as it makes you feel ill all over.  Just keep doing the right things, introduce new foods one at a time. I would also suggest more protein for weight issues ... can you tolerate tuna? Tuna and some version of mayo? Salmon, vitamin D supplements, and bone broth seemed to have helped me recently with gut healing. Wishing you well...  
    • Thank you for your response! Again I am pretty sure my doctor did all these checks however I will definitely check to make sure and take the necessary actions if not. It just feels like a never ending run of doctor appointments and blood tests at the moment and the whole thing really did come as a surprise to me. I think I have really tried to eat healthy as I believe its so important especially being diagnosed with this disease. I feel as though its not just about eliminating gluten but also having a really healthy and balanced lifestyle. Also, I find that at the moment it is not just gluten that upsets my stomach, fruit for some reason also does. Unfortunately, people do not realize this and dismiss it which can also be annoying on top of the diagnosis. I will definitely be avoiding processed foods and have been for the last few months. Thank you for your response and I will listen to my body as you have said, it is without doubt very important.
