Coeliac Disease – What you need to know, by Alex Gazzola.

This comprehensive guide was published in 2011, is available from most major outlets and from Coeliac UK’s website ( or click on the link below right) Don’t let it being a book put you off, as it’s written in a succinct style, with short chapters and bold headings, so it’s easy to quickly find what you need to know. Newly diagnosed coeliacs will find it an invaluable companion to learn more about the disease and its management, when they have lots of questions that need answers. It will also be a good resource for dietitians and health care professionals new into practice who may be wondering how to answer patients’ questions. New regulations are covered, with regard to food labelling, important for those who need a pertinent update on the recent changes in this area. Above all, I was impressed by the chapter on emotional well-being, particularly important for those who have followed the diet for some considerable time and finding it difficult not to be tempted by foods containing gluten, or those who are really struggling to come to terms with their diagnosis and the lifelong commitment to following a gluten-free diet. This book will likely need updating in years to come with changes in treatments and regulations, but it has been written with much thought and empathy and should prove a valuable tool for those with a need for knowledge on coeliac disease. This book has been shortlisted for the Guild of Health Writers Writing Awards 2012 – Best Health Book category. For further information copy and paste the following link:
