I learned quite a bit in this short book. Even a small speck of a bread crumb can cause problems that might or might not be felt by the individual. But, that small crumb can cause serious villi health problems in the small intestine.
This book states that if you feel better when avoiding gluten that you don't necessarily have celiac disease, but should have a biopsy to identify which of 5 possibilities are causing your symptoms. Then you can begin the proper diet. If you're gluten free at this time, you will need to begin eating gluten again, daily for about a week, before having the biopsy.
This short book is great starting point for someone who thinks they might have a gluten intolerance. You could probably gather all this information yourself by taking time to search the web; however, it's nice having it all in one place. It explains there are different reasons & symptoms of gluten intolerance, explains how gluten sensitivity/intolerance affects the villi in the small intestine, has a few recipes, lists foods to avoid & foods that are okay to eat, and more.
Being two weeks into my hubby's gluten avoidance diet, this book has armed me with helpful information & knowing what the next step should be concerning his treatment plan.
