Item description for Celiac Disease: A Guide to Living with Gluten Intolerance by Sylvia Llewelyn Bower, Mary Kay Sharrett & Steve Plogsted...
Celiac disease is a digestive disorder caused by a sensitivity to the protein gluten in wheat flour, which in turn can damage the small intestine and inhibit the body's absorption of nutrients from food. The disease is hereditary and can affect entire families. Cowritten by a registered nurse who lives with celiac disease, a dietician, and a clinical pharmacist, this indispensable guide tackles all aspects of the disease, including symptoms, diagnosis, management, complications, and current research. While many cookbooks and dietary manuals on gluten intolerance exist, <i>Celiac Disease</i> is the only book on how to live fully and richly while maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle. In addition to learning how to set up and maintain a gluten-free kitchen, readers find strategies for tackling emotional issues, nutrition and dietary guidelines, tips for dining out, and advice on raising a celiac child.

Celiac Disease is difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to live with. This book should give hope and encouragement to anyone with Gluten Intolerance. I have recommended it to our local support group as it is well researched and very well written. Thanks Sylvia - Great job!
