Tests and diagnosis
Diet and nutrition
Other auto-immune conditions – e.g .type 1 diabetes thyroid disease
Other health issues – e.g. lowered fertility, skin problems
Living gluten-free – practicalities
Children and teenagers
Further help and resources, including gluten-free food sources.


"Coeliac disease represents a confusing journey for so many people, and this book provides an accurate and supportive guide to help clear away the fog along the way."
Dr Chris Steele
"This compact book packs a wealth of information ... I have read dozens of books about celiac disease but learned so much in Gazzola's overview of the discovery of the cause ... one of the go-to books for those with the disease ..."
Linda Hughes, Celebrate Gluten-Free
"This book will help those anxious about the condition to understand more about it. Chapters on symptoms, diagnosis and testing are followed by practical advice on managing the disease, including the emotional and psychological effects - an area too often overlooked."
Sarah Stacey, You Magazine
"... a fantastic support for those with a diagnosis... provides much more than 'just the basics' of the condition and will give comfort and reassurance to those bewildered by recent diagnosis... an excellent book."
Ursula Arens, Network Health Dietitians
"... well-written... factually accurate... easy to read... The contents are well selected and up to date... a useful addition to the bookshelf of anyone with coeliac disease, particularly the newly diagnosed."
Tanya Thomas, RD, Dietetics Today
"There is a huge amount of information packed into this slim little volume... a must-read bible of a book"
Ruth Holroyd, What Allergy?
"The most informative book on coeliac disease I have ever read - all coeliacs should have a copy."
John Burke, GFLiving.com
"I recommend this book to anyone who is newly diagnosed with coeliac to deal with the transition to a gluten-free life as well as those who've been living with coeliac disease for some time and would like a refresher."
Sian Drew, AKA Gluten-Free Mrs D
