Celiac Disease For Dummies is the ultimate reference for people with the disease and their family members. The book helps readers identify symptoms of the disease, and explains how doctors definitively diagnose celiac disease. It outlines how celiac disease affects the body, and what its consequences could be if untreated. The authors explain how celiac disease is treated, not only through the elimination of gluten from the diet, but with additional nutritional measures and alternative and complementary therapies. Written by two practicing physicians, the book also offers practical, helpful guidance for parents of children with celiac disease, whose treatment may be a particular challenge.

ok, this looks like a great beginners "how to" on celiac.
But seriously, one day people are going to look back and laugh. Yes - it's really important to have an invasive procedure done - when a
simple blood test has pretty much 100% specificity. Yeah, ok, it misses 20% of celiacs but if it says you have celiac - either the lab stuffed up or you have celiac - so have another blood test to confirm it - no need to spend money on a less accurate and quite invasive procedure.
So here's the low down-
Gluten is affecting you when anti-gliadin antibodies are running around your blood stream. (officially gluten sensitivity - forget the whole latent crap) So if you have those antibodies running around you have a problem. If you think otherwise check up on the recent research into gluten ataxia. So if you can get THAT blood test, not the celiac one and then follow all the celiac advice. It's very good.
