Coeliac Disease and gluten intolerance are sensitivities to the gluten in wheat. People with Coeliac Disease have a genetic predisposition, causing the proteins in wheat, barley and rye to create an inflammatory process in the small intestine. For a person with Coeliac Disease, it is absolutely mandatory to maintain a strict diet for life. Currently there is no other treatment. The gluten-free lifestyle may also reduce the risk of many other diseases, including Cancer, caused by the inflammatory process. What Nurses Know . . . Gluten-Free Lifestyle provides medical-based advice with a common sense leaning that people expect from Nurses.

About the series

Nurses hold a critical role in modern health care that goes beyond their day-to-day duties. They share more information with patients than any other provider group, and are alongside patients twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, offering understanding of complex health issues, holistic approaches to ailments and advice for the patient that extends to the family.

Nurses themselves are a powerful tool in the healing process. What Nurses Know gives down-to-earth information, addresses consumers as equal partners in their care and explains clearly what readers need to know and want to know to understand their condition and move forward with their lives.
