BEST Celiac Awareness BookReal Life With Celiac Disease” share with your friends, family and anyone you think may be suffering with undiagnosed Celiac Disease. This is the number 1 book that I recommend to anyone that is looking for more information and guidance from people in the medical profession.  Melinda Dennis has Celiac Disease (CD) and Dermatitis Herpetiformis  (DH) since 1992 when it was very uncommon.

I am so excited to share this awesome book with you – “Real Life With Celiac Disease”, Troubleshooting and Thriving Gluten Free by Melinda Dennis, MS, RD, LDN and Daniel A. Leffler, MD, MS from The Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

I truly think this is a book to buy and keep close by to refer back to the detailed information.  It isgreat to have it on hand when the brain fog kicks in and you are looking for answers.  I have read through this book from cover to cover and will probably read it again and again for that very reason.  There is so much information to learn.  It is comforting to know that the authors have taken the time to research and document this information for all of us.  It is a great book to buy for family members that do not understand what this “new Gluten Free lifestyle” is all about and why it is so important for them to support you and your health by adhering to Gluten Free foods and avoid cross contamination.

I have one favor, please ask your local library to order this book so that more people can learn about Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance.

The book has 3 main Chapter Headings and I have highlighted a few chapters within that I think are key points of information but all of the info is extremely valuable.

The Basics: Definitions and Diagnosis – This covers all areas in great details with drawings and charts. Info included about Genetic Testing, DH, Finding Celiac Disease in Children.

The Gluten-Free Life: Solutions and Strategies - The Gluten Free Vegetarian, Cheating? Think Again,  Combining Diets for Diabetes and Celiac Disease by Cynthia Kupper, RD, CD and Director of GIG, Infant Feeding and Celiac Disease.

The Obstacles: Concerns and Complications – Monitoring Celiac Disease, Non Responsive, Malabsorbtion of Fructose, Lactose and Related Carbohydrates, Cancer Risk and Realities, Skin Manifestations,Neurological Manifestations.

I know I am repeating myself but all of the information in the book is so extremely eye opening and reassuring to those who think they are alone.  You will want to read the entire book when you get it so make some hot tea, curl up with a blanket and read!

 

If you have Celiac Disease then you must read this book!

Salud!
