This is a solid introduction to the reasons for gluten free eating.
I always avoided this book due to the terrible cover. But it is a decent, real life story of discovering gluten related health issues. Readable, funny, and informative - Ms. Hasselbeck's story is one worth sharing. Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
She dived in and her painful symptoms immediately returned. She did her own research and eventually diagnosed herself with celiac disease, which is a digestive disorder characterized by a toxic reaction to gluten, the protein found in wheat, rye, barley and some oats. Loath to believe that diet could be the culprit as well as the cure, physicians continued to prescribe medications which sometimes masked the symptoms, but sometimes had no effect whatsoever. Eight long years later, she found a physician, Dr.
Peter Green, who diagnosed her problems as celiac disease. With his help, she learned which foods contain gluten, and how she could most effectively avoid them.
Since then she has been free of all symptoms, has a wide range of delicious gluten-free foods she can eat and has the stamina and strength to manage her very busy life. Green wrote the forward to this book, and therein gives us some insight into why celiac disease is so rarely diagnosed in this country.
The list of symptoms is long and was included in the excellent article on celiac disease printed in this magazine last month.
That article was written by a nutrition educator who also has this condition. I have recently found out that I too have Celiac disease.
Finding food in restaurants is even more challenging as everything is in a sandwich, pasta, fried or is fried in the same oil as everything breaded. Salads and entrees of meat, potato and vegetable are the best choices. It is sure nice to have someone in the public eye with the same disease. Hopefully Elisabeth can bring awareness to it.
They say that very few people ever find out they have this disease. A simple blood test can be done if you think you have it. A buddy recommended me to check out this site, brill post, fanstatic read… keep up the good work!
