AGluten Free Life:My Celiac Story lives up to its title. It is the story of Jeeva and her life as a celiac. Anyone from an urban, metropolitan background can relate to the story. In an easygoing narrative, she brings forth the issues persons diagnosed with celiac would encounter. Questions regarding its manifestation, whether it is genetic, what can a person eat, as also thoughts that normally ail any patient once diagnosed—why me, why now—are dealt with in the book. Coming from a personal perspective, they are easy to grasp, lucid and very day to day. These are things your gastroenterologist can never prepare you for, unless he/she is a celiac! Being a non-celiac gastroenterologist, it would be my reference book for those who have been recently diagnosed.
I would recommend this book for any celiac person, also for the friends and spouse. While it describes unimaginable scenarios to be addressed—delays in a connecting flight—stranded on airports, airline meals—it also gives hope, and practical tips on how to deal with such situations.
