Summary

This book is dedicated to the people who have patiently supported my sometimes overzealous and usually over-the-top efforts as The Glutenator, singing the praises of a gluten-free lifestyle throughout the land. Most importantly, to my family and friends — especially Tyler, Kelsie, and Bryan — who encourage, inspire, and energize me. Your support means more to me than you could ever know, and I couldn’t have written a word without you. And to those of you who embrace or are planning to embrace the gluten-free lifestyle, I hope I can make a difference, if even only a small one, in your lives by inspiring you to love the gluten-free way of life.
Anybody out there ever experienced stomach aches, bloating, headaches, mood swings, short memory loss, difficulty concentrating, fatigue, constipation, diarrhea, short temper, hair loss, tingling of the arms or legs, joint pain, or anemia for unknown reasons? If not, go ahead and eat as much pasta and pizza you like. If on the other end, you have experienced any of these symptoms (and I’ll bet all of us have, at some point), chance are you and gluten disagree. These symptoms are a few examples of how these chameleonic conditions called celiac disease and gluten sensitivity can present clinically. But what really are celiac disease and gluten sensitivity?

You can read lots of details about celiac disease and gluten sensitivity in this book.
