As the market for gluten free foods continues to grow and change, many people are turning to a gluten free lifestyle for a number of reasons. Some people, however, are diagnosed with celiac disease, which is more than just a gluten sensitivity. For people with celiac disease, eating is often uncomfortable and sometimes painful; children with the disease often experience difficulties gaining weight. Understanding Celiac Disease explores the underlying causes, explains the biology, details the methods for diagnosis, and describes the symptoms and potential treatments. In easy to understand language, Dr. Naheed Ali helps demystify the subject for those who suffer, those who suspect they might suffer, and those who help care for those diagnosed with celiac disease.

Editorial Reviews

Naheed Ali's book comes at a time when the diagnosis rate of celiac disease is increasing dramatically, as a result of both, heightened perception of this entity by health providers, and especially a more widespread realization by the public that gluten intake may be responsible for symptoms within and without the digestive tract. The book is interesting and thoroughly researched and documented. It represents a thorough, well documented overview of celiac disease and its multitude of manifestations, that raises many interesting questions and will hopefully stimulate further investigation.
