“Celiac Disease, A Hidden Epidemic” A Helpful Book For Celiac Disease Sufferer’s

I have read a couple of books about celiac disease at the beginning of my diagnosis.  One of the most helpful books to me was: “Celiac Disease, A Hidden Epidemic” By: Peter Green, MD and Rory Jones.  If you are limited by time and/or resources, this is the quintessential book to help you understand the disease.  If you have time to read more publications, and you find them helpful, please let me know, and I will share your findings on this blog.  If you, or someone who you know has stomach issues and do not have a celiac diagnosis, check out this book.  If you are on a gluten-free diet, check out this book!

Not all doctors are up to speed with celiac’s disease, so even if you have a diagnosis from them, the diagnosis may be about the extent of the help that the doctor can offer you.  Please take the time to read some quality books and publications and educate yourself about the disease.  Going gluten-free seems daunting at first, but it doesn’t have to be.  You just need some assistance and you can start feeling better and healing quickly.

I have a work associate that lives on the East Coast and is fortunate enough to be a patient of Dr. Green, gastroenterologist at Columbia University’s Celiac Disease Center.  She has given him great reviews, and has passed on a lot of useful information about her battle with Celiac’s; she was much sicker than I was, and this disease center was a big help to her.  The book was a big help to me, in fact, I think that I should reread his book seeing as how he has updated it since my first reading!  Read the book, let me know what you think!
