After reading this new book by celiac nurse specialist Shelly Stuart, RN, what shines through above all is her true understanding of the complex nature of gluten-related illnesses, and her heartfelt compassion for patients who suffer from them. Her book is extremely well researched and documented, and as a registered nurse and celiac, Ms. Stuart is able to use her strong patient teaching experience to clearly educate the reader about even very complicated health issues. She provides excellent explanations of leaky gut and the pathophysiology of celiac disease, and she is one of the first clinicians to write in-depth about non-celiac gluten intolerance. Always citing clinical evidence, she makes the important point that immune-mediated reactions can and do occur in non-celiac gluten intolerance, too. She accurately describes pancreatic insufficiency, which can accompany celiac disease, and makes the important point that this condition can persist even after diagnosis and transition to a gluten-free diet. Her discussion of the many, varied health disorders associated with celiac disease is very comprehensive. But one of the most compelling aspects to "Gluten Toxicity" is the many important questions asked regarding the future of clinical research. Ms. Stuart makes it crystal clear that we need to know much more about the physical and mental health manifestations of gluten-related illness. This can only come about by increasing awareness both within the medical and research communities, and throughout each of our own families. We must all become advocates for greater testing and more accurate diagnosis.

Shelly's personal story, woven throughout the book, adds interest and a personal appeal, but never attempts to substitute anecdote for the hard science she relies on.

Gluten Toxicity by Shelly Stuart is an incredible resource that I hope makes its way into a lot of hands, including a lot of doctors' hands.

I have been doing research on Gluten Intolerance for a long time, and I've run into a lot of references that keep me wondering and searching for more answers. Which is natural since the disease is just starting to be understood, but many of the books I've read are vague and don't inspire confidence.

Shelly doesn't have all the answers either, but she is very forthright about it. She not only covers the vast amount of information that is available, but points out where research is lacking, and demonstrates why a lot of the information you hear about gluten intolerance is incomplete. And she includes stress as a trigger, a factor that can't be overlooked when explaining why people without symptoms still need to be concerned, and why symptoms sometimes don't appear until later in life.

The research is well documented in an extensive bibliography, which assures me that I'm not just getting opinions. Shelly does present her opinions, too. But since she is in the medical field-a registered nurse for 21 years including 5 years in gastroenterology-and she has lived successfully for 6 years with Celiac Disease herself, I feel her opinions are well-informed and worth listening to.

The book has extensive chapters that cover in detail the many aspects of gluten intolerance. In addition to general information, sections include:

1) Medical explanations of what Celiac Disease is, current theories about non-Celiac gluten intolerance, and a call for more research.

2) Possible symptoms and indicators of gluten intolerance, diseases that have been shown to be related to it, and information on allergies.

Gluten Toxicity is a terrific resource! Shelly has managed to very accurately address all of the current issues and misconceptions regarding celiac disease and gluten intolerance with well researched information. Shelly has much sought information on the paleolithic diet and why this should be considered. I look forward to referencing Gluten Toxicity with clients and offering Shelly's new book an excellent first resource.
