Date:5/17/2010

Bethesda, MD (May 17, 2010) A new book from the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) offers broad and practical knowledge on celiac disease and gluten-related disorders, empowering those who are undiagnosed and those living with the disease to achieve the best possible health and well-being.

The authors Melinda Dennis, MS, RD, LDN, and Daniel A. Leffler, MD, MS, both from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center joined by more than 50 international experts, share stories of patients who have questions or problems related to celiac disease and gluten-related disorders.
