Recognizing Celiac Disease is the complete guide to recognizing, diagnosing and managing celiac disease. It is a reader-friendly, reference manual written for both medical professionals and the general public. The NIH now estimates celiac disease affects up to 1 in 100 people, making Recognizing Celiac Disease both timely and urgently needed. The book provides: • Up-to-date scientific information obtained from hundreds of research studies and case reports from around the world. • Explanations of gluten (the cause of celiac disease), sources of gluten in food and how gluten triggers a harmful reaction in the body. • An overview of celiac disease, including background, prevalence, description, pathophysiology, manifestations, diagnosis, management and prognosis. • A complete description of the digestive process and how gluten disrupts both organ structure and function. • The 3-Step Process for gluten-free diet self-management. This book will act as a guide and resource for successful dietary management by clinicians and individuals.• Helpful lists of foods and ingredients commonly allowed and not allowed on a gluten-free diet. • Nutritional charts detailing how deficiencies show, research study findings, case reports, response to gluten-free diet, and lists of foods with the highest sources of each nutrient to enable any person to assess his own, or a patient's, state of health regarding nutritional deficiencies related to celiac disease and then manage those deficiencies. • Concise charts of over 300 health manifestations detailing prevalence, description, relationship to celiac disease, symptoms, causes and response to the gluten-free diet aid clinicians and patients in identifying and treating disorders caused by, or related to, celiac disease.• 2 indexes, a comprehensive glossary, charts, figures and numbered citations from hundreds of medical journals, periodicals and texts for further study.
