Review quote

'I particularly like the no nonsense approach, the clear writng style and the clear format of the book. It is also very reasonably priced, which makes it a handy book to give to teachers, grandparents, friends or indeed anyone who may need to know more about the disease and it's ramifications. The book covers a wide range of issues including a good description of Coeliac Disease and it's symptoms, how to start cooking gluten free, eating out, travelling and holidays and a section on frequently asked questions.'Adriana - 'With chapters on children, teenagers and young adults, eating out and travel, pregnancy, babies and weaning, follow-up, support and lots of frequently ask questions, this book is highly recommended for anyone newly diagnosed, or simply confused about coeliac disease.' 'Coeliac Disease The Essential Guide is a no-nonsense guide gives information on how coeliac disease can be diagnosed, how to avoid gluten in daily life and how to stop your social life from being affected. Advice is given about prescription foods available, other conditions associated with coeliac disease and how to cope with the condition when pregnant. There is also a chapter for parents of children with coeliac disease.' Desang Newsletter. Simple, Straightforward and Easy to Read I really liked this book, it was simple, straight-forward and easy to read. There were lots of good points in it with good illustrations too. There is information about how to start a gluten-free diet, with information on cooking as well. There are useful suggestions of alternatives to more mainstream foods, like an alternative to Weetabix. The recipes are great. For someone learning to cope with Coeliac Disease there is information on how to get a prescription, for children or adults. Also what to do before you go on holiday, such as how to prepare for eating out at restaurants. I thought this would be excellent for someone who is new to the condition including a section on children with the condition, including the fact that they might appear to go through brief periods where they may seem to lose the wheat intolerance, and what you should watch out for. As a nurse as well as a mother, I thought it was interesting to read about how a woman with Coeliacs should feed their baby to assume its not wheat-sensitive but to watch out for all the signs. Theres also a section on Coeliacs and other autoimmune diseases, which may also be present, such as diabetesshow more
