Book Description

Coeliac disease (CD) is an auto-immune disease caused by intolerance to gluten, found in wheat, rye and barley. Around 700,000 people in the UK have it – although seven in every eight are presently undiagnosed and ignorant of their condition. Increased awareness of the disease, ongoing campaigning from the charity Coeliac UK and amendments to NICE guidelines for the diagnosis of both IBS and CD, have all meant that more and more of the ‘missing’ coeliac patients are being picked up. Coeliac UK welcome over 100 new members a month. Mild CD in particular is more common than previously thought. Coeliac Disease: What you need to know addresses the needs of those who suspect they may have CD, or who are newly diagnosed, both of whom are increasing in number. It aims to support and advise those with the disease, as well as those who are parents of coeliac children or who care for adults with CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought for my partner 21 Jan. 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My partner has recently been diagnosed with Coeliacs disease and after many frustration trips back and forth between the doctors and hospital he needed more information about the condition. He isn't one for reading solid blocks of text cover to cover so I needed to find the right book for him! This book doesn't provide an information over load, but it provides enough information to get you started and answer many of those questions that crop up on a daily basis after first being diagnosed. Each chapter is split into very clear and concise manageable sections, which makes the book very easy to pick up for short periods and flick through to find what you are looking for. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has recently been diagnosed and for those friends and family members who wish to raise their awareness of this life changing condition. It also contains a very useful section at the back and lists groups, organisations and retailers to contact. My partner said himself this was a very good book, hence why I am writing this review!
