Of the many books on celiac disease and gluten intolerance on the market today, this is one of the best for both patients and those in the medical field.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 2, 2009
Health problems caused by issues with wheat and other gluten grains affect many millions of Americans. Unfortunately, the need for testing and treatment for celiac disease, wheat allergies, and non-celiac gluten intolerance is still a mystery to most physicians and patients. There are over 200 different maladies known to be associated with gluten intolerance, yet millions suffer due to the lack of proper diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Stephen Wangen's new book, "Healthier Without Wheat" finally cuts through the confusion to help people and their physicians identify and treat their wheat and gluten related health problems. This book explains, in down to earth language: wheat allergies, celiac disease, non-celiac gluten intolerance, the range of symptoms they cause, and how to test for and treat them. "Of the many books on celiac disease and gluten intolerance on the market today, this is one of the best for both patients and those in the medical field." - Library Journal .
"Healthier Without Wheat" combines the best available science with patient case stories to explain wheat allergies, celiac disease and non-celiac gluten intolerance. Dr. Wangen describes how wheat and gluten grains can cause a wide spectrum of medical problems from fatigue, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), and asthma, to osteoporosis. He explains why most people affected by wheat and gluten are not correctly diagnosed and suffer for years with many problems including anemia, chronic constipation, rashes, headaches, depression, and even fertility difficulties. For physicians and patients alike, Dr. Wangen points out the pitfalls of testing and the common interpretation errors. His explanations go into all the detail needed by physicians, but with a simplicity easily understood by everyone else. He even addresses the doctor's biggest challenge: when treatment doesn't work.
Though just out, the book is getting rave reviews and promises to help patients and physicians alike better understand a wide range of illnesses caused by the consumption of gluten grains. It provides detailed information about the entire range of wheat and gluten-related health issues, and includes detailed appendices on other vital resources. It is an excellent resource that you will enjoy reading the first time and will refer back to again and again. The contents of this book should help millions of Americans better understand their health and help physicians to better diagnose and treat them.
