Book: Real Life With Celiac Disease


I borrowed this book from the library this week.  I am really enjoying it and can’t put it down.  It has a great format with short chapters that don’t overwhelm the reader. 

The first section of the book deals with what celiac disease is and how to go about diagnosis.  I found this section to be very informative and helpful.  I would definitely suggest people read this if they are thinking they might have celiac disease or gluten intolerance. 

The second section looks into living life gluten free: challenges, solutions and strategies.  Some of the parts I found to be very helpful in this section include how to eat high fiber on a GF diet, supplements a celiac should take, celiac constipation, weight gain, food labeling in Canada and the US and gluten in medications and supplements.  This was my favourite section of the book.  It answered so many random questions I still had after being diagnosed.

The third section of the book talks about the obstacles with celiac disease.  The authors speak about the importance of monitoring celiac disease, other food intolerances or allergies, IBS and the use of probiotics.  Again, lots of great information that you can read through and go back to look at when you can’t remember the answers to your questions. 

I really liked this book because it was very informative, easy to read and answers questions other celiac books I have miss.  I would definately recommend this book to anyone who is interested in knowing more about celiac disease.
