If you have Coeliac disease, a child who has it, or suspect you may have it, you must read this book. In another shameless rip off of a press release, here is the low down on this new book and its success in the awards listings. In my defence, I’m busy and I couldn’t have put it better than Alex himself anyway, so read on…
‘Coeliac Disease: What you need to know’, the new book by health writer Alex Gazzola, has been shortlisted for a prestigious Guild of Health Writers Award 2012 for “Best Health Book”.
The book is a fact-packed guide to key aspects of coeliac disease, covering testing, diagnosis, new labelling regulations, diet and nutrition, future therapies, the psychological aspects of the condition, and much more.
It also features a foreword from Coeliac UK Health Ambassador, Dr Chris Steele.
Nutritionist and coeliac Ian Marber, formerly of The Food Doctor, called the book “a must-have for sufferers, medics, caterers and restaurant staff”.
It is up against books about psychology, cancer, IVF and dementia, and the winner will be announced at a gala reception on the 29th March 2012 at the Royal Society of Medicine, London.
The book is published by Sheldon Press and is available on Amazon and all good bookshops for £7.99.
An ebook for Kindle will be available in Spring.
