  1. I actually have Celiac's Disease. I was diagnosed in January of my 9th grade year so about 3 years ago. It's still really hard to deal with, especially considering my love of all things wheat and weakness for food as a whole. My main piece of advice is to connect with other people who are having to cope with Celiac's disease or gluten intolerance. You can learn a lot that way and it's great for support, having someone who understands.

    My mom and I are having a terrible time finding good gluten-free food and I would love to be able to win this book.

  2. Luckily, I don't have Celiac but a good friend of mine was recently diagnosed and could certainly use this book. Like the comment above, the best thing she did was get in contact with 1) others with celiac and 2) talk to a dietitian who was also able to offer some great advice.

  3. So much more information is available now for suffers. I would say best advice is use the internet and books to learn about this disease and the proper way to eat. I was diagnosed as a tiny child in the 1950's as wheat allergic. But no one educated my Mom so she banned wheat bread but kept feeding me white bread and I was sick all my childhood. I didn't begin to understand this lifestyle change till the internet came into being and I was past 50 years old.
    I would love a chance to win as I always am looking for great new recipes that fit for me.

  4. My daughter had symptoms similar to that of celiac disease and has been ill for over a year now. She has tested negative but still seems to sensitive to gluten, fat and acidic foods. At least now we know what to limit or avoid. Knowledge is the key. Perseverance in getting treatment and diagnosis is also essential. We found a great section in the grocery store that is set up for food allergies and gluten allergies and celiacs. Finding a great souce of food is a matter of a lot of leg work and trial and error but we did find a few. My advice, find a good source, meet with a dietician and persevere with doctors.
