Synopsis

Coeliac disease is not a food allergy, it is an autoimmune condition where the body’s immune system attacks it’s own tissues. This reaction is set off by gluten which is found in cereals, wheat, rye and barley. Around 1 in 100 people in the UK are affected by coeliac disease making it a lot more common than originally thought.

When you’re diagnosed with coeliac disease, the questions can seem overwhelming. What can I eat? What can’t I eat? Why do I have to avoid gluten? How do I tell people about my
condition? What about cooking, shopping and eating out? The Essential Guide to Coeliac Disease is here to help. With clear and comprehensive information, this guide explains what the disease is, how it’s diagnosed, how it will affect your diet and social life, and, most importantly, how you can live happily and healthily with the condition. It gives practical advice about the prescription foods available and strategies for helping children and teenagers. You’ll also find information on issues like coping with a pregnancy, holidays and other conditions associated with the disease. Living with coeliac disease doesn’t have to be complicated – this book is your starting point.
