For centuries, wheat has been known as the “staff of life.” But for millions of Americans affected by gluten-related disorders, consuming gluten, the complex protein found in wheat, rye, and barley, can be hazardous to their health.

In Gluten Freedom, Alessio Fasano, MD, founder of the Center for Celiac Research, brings the latest in scientific research and treatment to help provide answers for one of the century’s most challenging healthcare issues. This practical, reliable guide is an invaluable tool for the newly diagnosed, for those experienced in dealing with gluten-related disorders, and for the healthcare professionals who support them.

As awareness of gluten-related disorders increases and consumption of gluten-free products explodes, access to reliable and accurate information is more important than ever. Distinguishing fact from fiction, Gluten Freedom clarifies research, diagnosis, and treatment/diet, helping consumers make the best food choices for themselves and their families. Gluten Freedom also provides useful advice for behavior-related disorders such as autism and conditions such as depression, anxiety, and “foggy mind.”

In an exciting and informative format, readers will learn about:

• The history of celiac disease and the role that genes play

• The complex diagnostic procedures for celiac disease

• The differences between celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, and wheat allergy

• Current treatments for gluten-related disorders throughout all stages of life

• The psychological impact of a diagnosis and its effect on a family
