Description

If you've just been diagnosed with celiac disease, you're not alone: as many as 1 in 133 Americans have this autoimmune disorder characterized by an inability to digest gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains. For ten years, Jules Shepard's gastrointestinal symptoms went misdiagnosed. Finally diagnosed, she experienced a rollercoaster of emotions and illness the year following, as she discovered what she could and could not eat through trial and error.

Now, in The First Year(R) Celiac Disease and Living Gluten-Free, Shepard explains everything you need to learn and do upon your or a family member's diagnosis.


- How celiac disease affects your entire body

- Eating gluten-free (and avoiding hidden glutens)

- Can I drink alcohol?

- Celiac and fertility

- Finding support groups

- Parenting a child with celiac disease

- Dining out, traveling, and entertaining
