Celiac disease and gluten intolerance are sensitivities to the gluten in wheat. People with celiac disease have a genetic predisposition, causing the proteins in wheat, barley and rye to create an inflammatory process in the small intestine. For a person with celiac disease, it is absolutely mandatory to maintain a strict diet for life. Currently there is no other treatment. The gluten-free lifestyle may also reduces the risk of many other diseases, including cancer, caused by the inflammatory process. What Nurses Know . . . Gluten-Free Living provides medical-based advice with a common sense leaning that people expect from nurses. The book explains the differences between celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and gluten allergy. Tips and suggestions are provided for setting up a gluten-free kitchen, what to watch for in medications, how to safely dine out and travel. The book includes a One Week Simple Healing Meal Plan to introduce how to eat gluten free and be healthy. Written in a user-friendly style, it will be easy for people to access the information they want and need without dealing with complex data or details.
