New Celiac Research

1 Comment 24 March 2014


Last Tuesday I enjoyed a gluten-free lunch with two lovely ladies that work at Dr. Fasano’s Center for Celiac Research at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Pam King, the Director of Development for the center, and dietitian Pam Curleton, dished out the latest about Dr. Fasano while we munched on burgers at Heartland Brewery.

(Psst. Mass General is a Harvard institution, if you’re impressed by things like that. ;))

The biggest scoop at lunch was news about Dr. Fasano’s book Gluten-Freedom.


It’s about time the leading authority on celiac disease wrote a book with the latest information about celiac disease and gluten related disorders.

Get used to that term: Gluten Related Disorders aka GRD.

Here’s more scoop from the press release:

Distinguishing scientific fact from myth, Gluten Freedom explains the latest research, diagnostic procedures, and treatment/diet recommendations, helping consumers make the best choices for themselves and their families. Gluten Freedom also discusses important nutritional implications for behavior-related diagnoses such as autism and conditions such as depression, anxiety, and “foggy mind.” Other highlights include:

  • The differences between celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, and wheat allergy
  • Current best practices for gluten-related disorders at any age
  • Practical information on setting up a gluten-free kitchen, reading labels, and staying safe and healthy in a world filled with hidden sources of gluten
  • The psychological impact of a diagnosis and its effect on a family
  • Groundbreaking research for prevention and therapy
  • Reliable and accurate resources for patients, parents, and physicians
  • And even recipes for an authentic gluten-free Italian dinner from Dr. Fasano’s home kitchen!

Can’t wait to get my review copy in the mail!!

Thank you, Dr. Fasano & Team!

    This is a great book written by two of the people featured in my memoir called “Coming Unglutened.” In my memoir I write about calling Susie and arranging an interview with Dr. Fasano. Most of that interview is included in my book. This has been a great addition to the growing body of knowledge about non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Thank you for including it!
