Overview

Unmasking One of the Most Underdiagnosed Autoimmune Diseases

Do you suffer from gastrointestinal complaints, fatigue, headaches, joint pain, anemia, and/or itchy skin conditions? Have you consulted numerous doctors, and been prescribed drugs and diets that have only temporarily alleviated some symptoms? If so, you may have celiac disease, a hereditary autoimmune condition that affects nearly one in every hundred people—97 percent of whom remain undiagnosed and untreated.

If you are one of these people, the real answer to your medical problems may lie in this book. Dr. Peter Green, director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University and internationally renowned expert on the disease, together with Rory Jones, an accomplished science writer who was diagnosed with the disease in 1998 and has been researching it ever since, have written the first and only authoritative guide on how celiac disease is properly diagnosed, treated, and managed. The disease is triggered by gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten damages the lining of the small intestine so that it cannot properly absorb food. Without essential nutrients, the entire body begins to suffer. Complications from celiac disease can include infertility, depression, liver disease, other autoimmune diseases (such as type 1 diabetes and thyroid disease), and even cancer. This is a disease that you do not outgrow. At present, the only way to treat it is to follow a lifelong gluten-free diet.

This revised and updated edition contains the most current information on celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and gluten sensitivity. It examines the disease's many manifestations and includes an entire section devoted to coping with the psychological aspects of living with a chronic illness and the gluten-free diet. There is new information about testing for the disease; a closer look at the causes, as well as related conditions; the latest scientific research toward a cure; an updated guide to ingredients and safe grains; and an expanded list of gluten-free manufacturers and national and international support groups.

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

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Green (director, Celiac Disease Ctr., Columbia Univ.) and Jones, a science writer and celiac disease patient, have added new information to this revised version of one of LJ's Best Consumer Health Books of 2006. The authors organize this edition the same way as the first, explaining the diagnosis, genetics, and possible complications, with seven chapters devoted to the gluten-free diet. Sections on the diagnosis and management of the disease are updated, and reports of more recent scientific research into a treatment or cure are included. There is a revised list of safe grains and ingredients and tips on reading labels as well as an expanded list of gluten-free product manufacturers. The 2006 edition, which has been a staple in library collections on celiac disease and gluten intolerance, is still a valuable resource worth keeping. This new edition is highly recommended for all libraries, even those that own the first edition.
—Lisa Felix

    Thanks

    Hello, My utmost thanks to Dr. Green and Rory Jones. Remarkable, written with empathy and easily understandable Diagnosed 20 plus years ago, this is the first comprehensive book I have ever read. Newly diagnosed celiacs contact me for information. Will now suggest they obtain Celiac Disease A Hidden Epidemic, a wonderful informative book covering every aspect of celiac disease. I have an arsenal of books, articles etc. Nothing else will be required and it will alleviate the stacks of information I currently keep. Wish Dr. Green could be cloned and come to the west coast, there is nothing available here. Olive-Las Vegas

    Great book!

    This was a great book, it is an eye opener for a lot of symptoms, at least for me. If you even think you have this it is very informative, and will get you to either eliminate or talk to your doctor to see about this. I highly suggest this book.

    Should be required reading for physicians

    This book provided many answers for questions that could not be answered by my regular doctor or specialist. I have already given it to someone else who needs the info and I will ordering another one for my library. Very helpful!

    Exellent Source

    I have not found a more reliable, credible book on this subject. I am a doctor myself, and this is a very scientific based resource.

    A superb guide.

    Having multiple food intolerences that went mis- diagnosed for years, I am quite familiar with this genre of writing. From this background, I will unequivocably say that this book is incredible. It gives a wealth of information about celiac disease specifically as well as a much-appreciated, comprehensive overview of the background to it--the complexity of the digestive systems and how they work and can go wrong. It is written beautifully with a blend of anecdotes and scientific fact that is a pleasure to read. The authors are obviously very familiar with the difficulties, stress, and pain that can accompany all stages of learning of and living with a gluten-free diet. It's tone is honest, extremely positive, and uplifting. I recomend this book to all interested in this topic, celiacs and non-celiacs alike.

    Excellent Celiac Resource

    This book is an excellent addition to a person with celiac disease's library. Rather than another 'do's and don'ts' book, it's focus is on the physiology and pathology of celiac disease. But let not your heart be troubled (or your brain twisted) by medicalese -- it is written very clearly and in layman's terms. It gives a comprehensive overview of the 'normal' digestive tract and the immune system. Then it explains what celiac disease is and what goes wrong. There are discussions on how to diagnose celiac disease, the alternative approaches to testing for celiac disease, laboratory differences and the future of testing. There are also chapters on differential diagnoses (what else could you have besides celiac disease) and 'why' people get celiac disease -- what is known about the evolution of this particular disease process. The next part of the book is devoted to related conditions and complications and the medical management of celiac disease. There are chapters on what you need to know -- and do--after diagnosis, why symptoms persist, and follow-up testing. The treatment for celiac disease, the gluten free diet, is discussed with care. The topics covered include grain science, cross contamination, and basic rules for avoiding cross contamination. There are chapters on the new labelling and testing of gluten free products, a short chapter on cooking without gluten (this is not a cookbook), eating in the 'real world', dealing with family occasions, the medicine cabinet and cosmetics and 'eating naked'. The last part of the book has chapters on dealing with children and young adults who have celiac disease, including the impact of parental attitudes, how adults cope with the changes celiac disease and the gluten free diet bring to their lifestyles and then chapters on research and myths and unexplored areas. I would say that at least two thirds of the book deal with the medical and scientific issues. The last third of the book deals with lifestyle change and gluten-free diet issues. I was glad that there weren't really any specific products mentioned in the book, so we don't have to worry about whether or not a product really is 'still' gluten free or not because we saw it in this book. This book is very well written with a good balance between personal anecdotes and hard science. All in all, I certainly think that this book is an excellent reference for every celiac to have and an important contribution to the celiac community.

    Talonkit's Hideout

    High up a leafy tree, there is food with a waterfall less than a tail-length away to drink from. There is also a soft nest. This used to be Sneerkit's hide-out, if you remember.

    Excellent book!

    This is fabulous resource material for newly diagnosed Celiacs or even those who've had it for a while and just need good clinical and resource info at their fingertips. The book arrived in excellent (brand new) condition. Delivery time took much longer than I expected, being outside the time frame listed for delivery when I placed the order. An e-mail to the vendor came back with a rather impersonal response. All said and done though, the book is excellent and in perfect condition.

    Best Celiac Resource I've Found

    I was recently diagnosed with Celiac and have found this book (out of the many I have read) to be the best resource. It is certainly the most informative, speaking in simple language geared toward an audience like myself. I just wish there were more recipes!

    A Must to Bring to Dr.'s Appointment

    This book is a must have for any celiac. I brought this to my general practitioner for my appointment due to celiac disease symptoms. For a doctor who is not very familiar with celiac disease this is invaluable. I had parts bookmarked to support my suspicions. He referred me to a specialist after reading my evidenciary support.

    Some Books Are Like Good Friends

    When I was diagnosed with celiac disease recently, I went to the bookstore and this book just had been published. I was very glad to see a book that ended-up being like that close friend that gives you advice when you most need it. Sometimes I think that this book may have saved my life.
