This new volume in the Perspectives on Diseases & Disorders series provides an overview of celiac disease, a genetic disorder of the digestive system. Coverage includes a look at diagnosis, prevention, and current research. Controversies surrounding celiac disease, such as the impact of screening and the role of gluten-free diets in CD care, are also discussed. Several personal stories of people affected by celiac disease are included.
"In general, these books are excellent sources for high school readers to enhance their critical thinking skills. They could easily be used as jumping off points for research projects and debate topics."
