Celiac Disease and Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity Book Review:

Celiac disease is a systemic autoimmune process and appears in genetically predisposed individuals, with a well-known cause, consisting in a permanent intolerance to gluten, a protein contained in the flour of wheat, rye, barley and oats. Worldwide celiac disease affects to 1% of the Caucasian and there is recent evidence that the disease is increasing in USA and Finland among other regions in the world. It is considered to be the most prevalent disease with a genetic predisposition. The clinical forms of presentation are varied. The classical form consisting of diarrhea, anemia and failure to thrive is still common in children, but in the adult patients the symptoms resemble the irritable bowel syndrome. Mono-symptomatic forms with extra-intestinal manifestations are frequent. Hematological, cutaneous, articular, hepatic, bone and neurological manifestations are often described. This protean presentation and the lack of awareness explain the delay in diagnosis and suggest that screening in high-risk groups is indicated. The publication of this book written mainly by Spanish and Latin-American clinicians, researchers, and teachers, demonstrates the wide interest and the involvement of different disciplines that are necessary to understand celiac disease and gluten-related pathologies, such as non-celiac gluten-sensitivity. This has a great impact in the general public and in the industry. However, the knowledge of non-celiac gluten-related pathologies remains scarce but presently in the process of being properly defined. This book also highlights the importance of recognizing non-celiac gluten-sensitivity and briefly discusses a new definition. It also provides some perspectives to take into account when studying celiac disease in China and Central America. It describes new observations in Mexico, El Salvador and Costa Rica. The psychosocial impact as studied and reported by Argentinean investigators also adds to the value of this book. Written with a multidisciplinary team, we think that this book could be of interest to a great variety of medical specialists. Due to the systemic nature and variable presentation of celiac disease it certainly is of interest to pediatricians, gastroenterologists, hepatologists, specialists in internal medicine, general practitioners as well as hematologists, immunologists, geneticists, pathologists, rheumatologists, dermatologists, neurologists, gynecologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, orthopedic surgeons, specialists in rehabilitation medicine, endocrinologists. Being gluten the cause of these disorders, the food industry, dietitians and nutritionists will benefit from the valuable information presented in this book.

From Ptolemaus to Copernicus Book Review:

Gluten is the major protein of wheat and other cereals (rye and barley); it is responsible for triggering celiac disease (CD) in genetically predisposed individuals. Until a few years ago, CD was the major (if not the only) well-known gluten-related disorder. However, in recent years, it has become clear that gluten proteins may activate different pathological mechanisms, leading to a wide spectrum of human diseases, including non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), gluten ataxia, neuro-psychiatric disorders, and many others. Conceptually, we have therefore moved from a Ptolemaic to a Copernican system, i.e., CD is no longer the "center of the universe," but is just one of the possible worlds of gluten intolerance. Many other gluten planets do indeed exist and deserve the attention of researchers and clinicians alike. Although different gluten-related disorders show specific epidemiological, pathophysiological, and clinical aspects, these conditions share a trigger and treatment: the gluten-free diet. For a very long time, awareness of these disorders has been limited and, therefore, the epidemiology of gluten-related disorders is still a "work in progress." Current research strives to clarify the boundaries between these entities, their disease mechanisms, and how a proper diagnosis can be implemented.

Celiac Disease Book Review:

Celiac disease (CD) occurs in about 1% of people worldwide. Diagnosis rates are increasing due to a true rise in incidence, rather than increased awareness and detection. CD affects genetically susceptible individuals who are triggered by the ingestion of gluten. The disease has many clinical manifestations, ranging from severe to minimally symptomatic or non-symptomatic presentations. Diagnosis requires the presence of duodenal chronic inflammation, and most patients have circulating antibodies against tissue transglutaminase. Our understanding of the basic and clinical aspects of CD increases, which is as a major health problem of almost global occurrence. Case finding, distinguishing CD from other gluten-sensitive conditions, better care, and balanced use of resources are the current challenges.

The South Beach Diet Gluten Solution Book Review:

Today, supermarkets have dedicated gluten-free aisles, restaurants highlight gluten-free dishes on their menus, and millions of people have cut gluten out of their diets in the hopes of boosting health and losing weight. But despite all the attention, gluten confusion still reigns. Enter cardiologist Arthur Agatston, MD, author of the groundbreaking The South Beach Diet. With that book, Dr. Agatston ended the diet debates and cleared up the high-carb versus low-carb confusion. In The South Beach Diet Gluten Solution, he does the same for gluten, demystifying the effects of the difficult-to-digest protein in wheat and some other grains. The truth is, not everyone needs to give up gluten permanently—nor does doing so guarantee weight loss. With Dr. Agatston's phased Gluten Solution Program, based on proven South Beach Diet eating principles, you'll be able to determine your own level of gluten sensitivity—and you'll drop up to 10 pounds in just two weeks. What makes Dr. Agatston's approach unique is that he shows you how to become gluten aware, not gluten phobic. He shares his own personal journey to gluten awareness and explores the latest research to determine the real connection between gluten and health. He explains that a number of factors, including our vast overconsumption of highly processed grains, have increased the incidence of gluten sensitivity and celiac disease. These conditions contribute to a host of health issues, including brain fog, mood swings, digestive disorders, joint pain, and skin problems. You can find relief from these and other symptoms by following the South Beach Diet Gluten Solution Program. With detailed daily meal plans, tips for traveling and dining out, inspiring stories, and 20 delicious recipes (that sacrifice neither taste nor health), The South Beach Diet Gluten Solution gives you everything you need to feel great, lose weight, and navigate the gluten-free world with ease.

Celiac Disease Book Review:

What do osteoporosis, anemia, diabetes and depression have in common? They can all be caused by celiac disease. Celiac disease, also know as gluten intolerance, is a major problem for millions of Americans. The Celiac Disease Foundation estimates that 2 million adults, children, and infants, or 1 in 133 people in the United States, have celiac disease. Celiac disease is hereditary and can affect entire families. This digestive disorder is caused by a sensitivity to the protein gluten in wheat flour, which in turn can damage the small intestine and interferes with the absorption of nutrients from food. Symptoms range from diarrhea, weight loss, and abdominal pain to fatigue, depression, and malnutrition. Celiac Disease: A Guide to Living with Gluten Intolerance is the first book on this important topic co-written by a nurse, a dietician, and a clinical pharmacist. The authors' diverse backgrounds ensure complete and clear information on all aspects of this disease, including symptoms, diagnosis, management, complications, and current research. While many cookbooks and dietary manuals on gluten intolerance exist, Celiac Disease is the only book to educate individuals on how to live fully and richly while maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle. Not only will readers learn how to set up and maintain a gluten-free kitchen, but they will also find strategies for tackling emotional issues, nutrition and dietary guidelines, handling dining outside the home, and parental advice on raising a celiac child. In addition, a chapter on medications and a list of educational resources will aid readers in their transition to a gluten-free lifestyle. Celiac Disease: A Guide to Living with Gluten Intolerance is an indispensable guide for patients, dieticians, nutritionists and medical professionals working with celiac patients.

Nutritional and Analytical Approaches of Gluten Free Diet in Celiac Disease Book Review:

This study by the University of Basque Country Gluten Analysis Laboratory analyzes the gluten free diet from different perspectives. The authors provide background information on gluten, celiac disease, and other pathologies related to gluten intake. Later chapters cover topics such as techniques for gluten detection in foodstuffs and additives, as well as techniques used in complex matrices. Given that the only effective treatment for celiac disease is a strict, lifelong, gluten-free diet, and that the ingestion of small amounts of gluten can cause major symptoms in gluten intolerants, in recent years there has been an increasing interest in gluten free foodstuffs. In fact, the gluten-free product market has become one of the most prosperous in the field of food and beverages. The book provides a detailed analysis of the nutritional composition of gluten-free foodstuffs and a comparison with their gluten containing analogues. While targeted towards clinicians and science professionals, such as those working to develop gluten-free foods, it also discusses the energy and nutrient content of a gluten-free diet and offers different nutritional education strategies to improve the eating habits and nutritional status of those living with celiac disease.

Autoimmunity Book Review:

Autoimmunity is defined as an immune response against a self-antigen. This abnormal immune response can lead to tissue damage and to the development of autoimmune disease. From organ-specific autoimmune diseases, such as myasthenia gravis, to non-organ-specific, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, autoimmune diseases represent a heterogeneous group of disorders which affect approximately 6% of the population. The pathogenesis of many autoimmune diseases is complex and remains not completely understood. The aim of this book is to present current knowledge regarding pathogenic mechanisms of autoimmune diseases, clinical aspects of specific autoimmune diseases, like vitiligo, celiac disease and autoimmune liver disease, as well as insights regarding specific therapies.

Advances in Celiac Disease Book Review:

The incidence of gluten-related disorders (GRDs) continues to increase and its global prevalence is estimated affect to 5% of the population. s. Celiac disease (CD), Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH), Gluten Ataxia (GA), wheat allergy (WA), and Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS) are the five major GRDs that present with a wide range of clinical manifestations. They are manifested by symptoms of gastrointestinal tract disorders, as well as hematological, dermatological endocrinological, gynecological, rheumatological and nervous system. NCGS is a term that is used to describe individuals who are not affected by celiac disease or wheat allergy, yet they have intestinal and/or extra-intestinal symptoms related to gluten ingestion with improvement of their symptoms upon withdrawing gluten from their diet. It is believed that represents some heterogeneous groups with different subgroups characterized by different etiologies, clinical histories and clinical courses. There also appears to be an overlap between NCGS and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). There is a need for establishing strict criteria for diagnosing NCGS. The absence of validated biomarkers remains a significant limitation for research studies on NCGS. New evidence shows that a gluten-free diet may be beneficial for some patients with gastrointestinal symptoms, such as those symptoms commonly found in patients with IBS.

Food Protein Induced Enterocolitis FPIES Book Review:

This unique book is a first-of-its-kind resource, comprehensively guiding readers through the epidemiology, pathophysiology, recent diagnostic criteria, and management options for patients with Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES). Food-Protein Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome: Diagnosis and Management opens with a historical perspective of this condition, before moving into discussions of epidemiology and pathophysiology. FPIES can be difficult to diagnose as the symptoms overlap with multiple other conditions, and so clear differential diagnosis will be reviewed for both chronic FPIES, as well as acute FPIES. Later chapters are case-based, providing detailed multiple perspectives on the diagnosis and management of FPIES in patients with varying complicating factors and severity. Later chapters will tackle issues of quality of life in patient care, nutritional management for patients, and discussing working with parents and families to improve communication and at-home care. Parents, families and caregivers will also find chapters useful and relatable. A final chapter will look to the future of FPIES, addressing new research, guidelines, and implications for clinicians working with pediatric patients with FPIES, and for their families. Concise and practical, this book will be an ideal reference for allergists, pediatricians, family practice clinicians, gastroenterologists, nutritionists, and all other health care providers who encounter FPIES, and assist them in providing up-to-date, quality care for pediatric patients affected by this condition.
