More than 95% of all people with celiac disease are undiagnosed—and untreated—and at risk for complications from malnutrition to cancer.
Celiac disease is one of the most common autoimmune and gastrointestinal diseases, affecting more than 1% of the population. Many more have gluten-related ailments. People with celiac disease may have typical gastrointestinal symptoms, but others have seemingly unrelated problems, and diagnosis is delayed or never occurs. If you have unexplained depression, anemia, infertility, bone degeneration, liver disease, or trouble with your balance, a new book by Melinda Dennis, MS, RD, LDN, and Daniel Leffler, MD, will help you consider whether you have undiagnosed celiac disease. This book will explain the gluten free diet, the difference between celiac disease and gluten intolerance, and how to spot hidden wheat and gluten.
