Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that affects nearly one in every hundred people. Unfortunately, 97 percent remain undiagnosed and untreated. They continue to suffer from gastrointestinal complaints, fatigue, headaches, joint pain, anemia, and itchy skin conditions — to name just a few of the symptoms. These people consult numerous doctors, who prescribe drugs and diets that may alleviate some symptoms, but rarely work for long.

If you are one of these people, the real answer to your medical problems may lie in this book.

Celiac disease is a hereditary condition that damages the lining of the small intestine so that it cannot properly absorb the food that you eat. Without essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrition, the entire body begins to suffer. Because of its autoimmune nature it also sets off reactions that reverberate throughout all the organs of the body. This is a disease that you do not outgrow — it often returns years later with more significant symptoms.

The true medical impact of celiac disease is just beginning to emerge. This is the first authoritative guide on how the condition is properly diagnosed, treated, and managed. It examines the latest research into its many manifestations, with chapters devoted to each complication and to related diseases. These include infertility, other autoimmune conditions (for example, type 1 diabetes and thyroid disease), peripheral neuropathy, liver disease, and even cancer. It also devotes an entire section to coping with the psychological aspects of a chronic illness and the gluten-free diet.

This "inside-out" examination and explanation of the disease is a must-read for both patients and the medical community.

Synopsis:

“The definitive resource for every celiac, those yet to be diagnosed, and their families….A must-have book. “
— Elaine Monarch, Executive Director, Celiac Disease Foundation

 

A completely revised and updated edition of the definitive book on one of the most common and under-diagnosed autoimmune diseases in America, Celiac Disease, A Hidden Epidemic, provides essential information on the ailment that health experts estimate affects one out of every hundred people. Written by Peter H.R. Green, M.D., director of The Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, and Rory Jones, this comprehensive and accessible guide covers every aspect of the disease from symptoms and diagnosis, to learning and maintaining the diet—similar to the one popularized by Elizabeth Hasselbeck in her New York Times bestseller, The G-Free Diet. The Gluten Intolerance Group Newsletter calls this important volume, “the book the celiac world has needed all along.”

Synopsis:

Celiac Disease (CD) is one of the most common and underandndash;diagnosed, hereditary autoimmune condition in the U.S. today. Recent studies reveal that 1 in every 100 people suffer from CD. And 97% of them are undiagnosed. The average time to diagnosis is currently 9 years. In the case of CD (also known as gluten intolerance), the body damages or destroys the very mechanism that enables us to digest food. The primary target of injury is the small intestine. Triggered by gluten, the main protein found in wheat, rye and barley, the disease damages the small intestine so that it is unable to properaly absorb nutrients.

This is the first authoritative guide to CD coandndash;authored by an internationally renowned specialist on the disease. Dr. Peter Green and writer Rory Jones help readers to identify the symptoms, understand their diagnosis and cope with the challenges of living with CD. Incredibly comprehensive, yet accessible and user friendly, this book covers the disease from a medical, dietary and psychological standpoint. It explores all aspects of CD from the often "silent" symptoms and proper diagnostic procedures to the many related conditions and specific diet. The book also includes appendices on related articles and books of interest, medical contact information and a list national CD support groups.
