New to gluten-free? Wondering if you have celiac disease or a gluten-intolerance? Just got diagnosed and wondering where to start?
I encourage you to check out these resources for more information on celiac disease or gluten intolerance.
Favorite Books about celiac disease:
Celiac Disease (Revised and Updated Edition): A Hidden Epidemic – This is the book I recommend the most to anyone newly diagnosed. The local library system here has it, so I found it there originally. But I found it to be such a great resource I went and bought a copy of my own at Amazon. I carried this around with me for weeks after my diagnosis. This book will give you a great understanding of celiac disease and gluten intolerance. I found it extremely helpful in figuring out what I needed to do now that I was diagnosed. This book helped me make checklists of things to talk to my doctor about and to ask him to order further tests & blood work for.
The First Year: Celiac Disease and Living Gluten-free by Jules Shepard – This book really helped walk me through what to expect as I adjusted to life with celiac. I think it is excellent and highly recommend you get a copy if you are newly diagnosed.
