'A must-have for sufferers, medics, caterers and restaurant staff' - Ian Marber

This authoritative, accessible and supportive book will help you to find out if you or child need to avoid gluten, and how to set about getting a diagnosis. If you do need to avoid gluten - or if you already know you or a family member are coeliac - it will help you to understand labelling, to shop safely (and affordably), to eat out without fear, and to make the best healthy, gluten-free choices for your diet. There is plenty of psychological and emotional support, and insight into managing everyday challenges, from safe travel to personal care and other non-food exposures. The book also gives some insight into the latest research into coeliac disease, and possible future developments for managing the condition, giving continued hope that the newest, groundbreaking therapies may transform the lives of coeliacs ten years hence.

Practical, readable and with a Foreword by Coeliac UK, this book is indispensable for anyone seeking the very latest information and advice on how to live the best possible gluten-free life.
