Book Description

The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center is dedicated to raising awareness, increasing diagnosis rates and meeting the needs of people affected by celiac disease nationwide through education, research and advocacy.

Celiac disease, spelled Coeliac outside of North America, is an autoimmune disorder, which means the body “attacks itself”, rather than attacking a foreign substance as in an allergy. The medical treatment for celiac disease consists of strict adherence to a gluten-free diet.

With this guide you will understand the differences between celiac disease, intolerances and allergies. You will learn about the 300-plus signs and symptoms associated with celiac disease, genetic and antibody blood testing, diagnosis and required follow-up testing.

In this guide you will learn what gluten is, where gluten is found and how to avoid gluten. You will also become knowledgeable on how to make healthy food choices while grocery shopping and preparing foods inside your home to manage your gluten free diet.

You will be able to identify gluten free grains, meal options and snacks for safe eating anytime. You will also be able cook gluten free for your family and friends with easy to follow recipes excerpted from the book - Simple, Delicious Solutions for Gluten-Free & Dairy Free Cooking by Sueson Vess from Special Eats.

You will become aware of how to eat gluten free outside your home at social gatherings and school. You will also empower yourself to safely eat in restaurants and while traveling with checklists and recommendations excerpted from the books, ebooks & apps - Let’s Eat Out with Celiac / Coeliac and Food Allergies! by Kim Koeller from GlutenFree Passport.

1.0 out of 5 stars Possible outdated and misleading information January 30, 2014

Possible outdated and misleading information

This is my first review. I have never felt moved to write one before, but this book made me do it.

Firstly I downloaded it for free. (thankfully)

Secondly, I have not finished it yet. But as this is a reference book which is meant to help and guide people who have been diagnosed with Coeliac (AUS) /Celiac (USA) Disease and I am a slow reader these days, I didn't want to wait until the end of the year to voice my concerns. When, (and if) I have finished it, I will revisit this review. After reading through the food lists of what is deemed safe and unsafe, I have no confidence in this book.

A number of people have commented that they know everything in it already, but it is *good* for those who are newly diagnosed.

In part I agree. There is nothing new here. And what there is, is scant. But as to it being useful to the new I disagree. I find the first part unhelpful. And some of the latter misleading and inaccurate.

*Chapter One: Celiac Disease, Intolerances & Allergies*

There is very little information given. A small paragraph on what is coeliac disease, which I suppose is useful if you want a quick explanation to give a friend. Not good if you truly wish to understand the disease. And then it continues with a whole lot of statistics. What percentage of the U.S. population have it, what other chronic diseases there are in the USA and finally resorting to...
The number of people with celiac disease in the U.S. would fill 4,400 Boeing 747 airplanes.

It would take 936 cruise ships to hold every American with celiac disease.

Americans with celiac disease could fill Comiskey Park (now U.S.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first book a newly diagnosed celiac should read! September 24, 2014
By Lori S.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is an abundance of material available about the gluten-free diet and lifestyle. Most of it is overwhelming to a newly-diagnosed celiac. A lot of it isn't even accurate. This short book is the only thing you should read for the first week after your diagnosis. It is informative, practical, and easy to digest (pardon the pun!). I highly recommend this book, as well as any resources available through the Celiac Disease Center at the University of Chicago. I had some questions that my doctor didn't answer to my satisfaction, and Dr. Guandalini personally answered my e-mail. It's also fantastic that the best "beginner's guide" to celiac disease is absolutely free!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a free book, tons of information for free, can't beat that. I don't understand people who can leave such a harsh review for this book. If you decide to start gluten free diet or searching about celiac/ gluten sensibility/ intolerance, this book will be very helpful. I can recommend.
