Wangen (cofounder & medical director, Irritable Bowel Syndrome Treatment Ctr; The Irritable Bowel Syndrome Solution), a gluten-intolerant physician, sheds new light on how wheat and gluten affect millions of people. He writes from both the doctor and the patient points of view by combining scientific information with stories about patients. Clearly organized into five parts-"Wheat and the Problems It Can Cause," "Celiac Disease," "Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance and Wheat Allergies," "Testing Summary for All Forms of Gluten Intolerance," and "Wheat Allergies and Treating Gluten Intolerance"-the book also offers eight valuable appendixes that include gluten-free food companies, products, and restaurants; resources for further information; and conditions caused by wheat allergies and gluten intolerance. 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. Recommended for all libraries.-Lisa Felix, Mishawaka-Penn-Harris P.L., Mishawaka, IN (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
