en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 24 May 2016
From Dr. Peter H.R. Green, internationally renowned expert on celiac disease and director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, and medical writer Rory Jones, this is the definitive book on celiac disease, one of the most underdiagnosed autoimmune diseases in the U.S. 
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.
The real answer to your medical problems may lie in this book. Dr. Green, together with Rory Jones, an accomplished medical writer who was diagnosed with the disease in 1998 and has been researching it ever since, have written this 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, which 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 following a gluten-free diet. It also includes a guide to ingredients and safe grains, a selection of gluten-free manufacturers, and a list of national and international support groups.

A must-read for anyone with gluten intolerance, food sensitivities, a “nervous” stomach, or chronic fatigue
Do you suffer from gastrointestinal complaints, fatigue, headaches, joint pain, anemia, and/or itchy skin conditions? Have you diagnosed yourself with a food allergy, or 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 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. The disease affects nearly one in every hundred people—85 percent of whom remain undiagnosed and untreated. Complications from celiac disease include infertility, liver disease, depression, other autoimmune diseases (such as Type 1 diabetes and thyroid disease), and even cancer.
The answer to your medical problems may lie in this book. Dr. Peter H. R. Green, director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University and internationally renowned expert on the disease, together with Rory Jones, an acclaimed medical writer who was diagnosed with the disease in 1998, have written the ultimate guide on how celiac disease is properly diagnosed, treated, and managed.
This revised edition includes:
  • The latest medical research on celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and gluten sensitivity
  • An entire section on coping with the psychological aspects of living with a chronic illness and following a gluten-free diet
  • New guidelines on testing, and the most recent scientific research toward a cure
  • An updated guide to ingredients and safe grains, gluten-free manufacturers, and national and international support groups . . . and more!
