Celiac disease and gluten intolerance are poorly understood, with symptoms that mimic many other conditions. Patients with celiac disease often have GI complaints, but can also suffer from anemia, infertility, short stature, IBS, joint pain, osteoporosis, Type I diabetes, neurologic problems, and itchy skin rashes. It can often take more than a decade for a person with celiac disease to receive the correct diagnosis, because patient and physician awareness has been lacking. But now with New Era Productions� instructional DVD set, everyone with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, as well as physicians, nurses, dieticians, family, friends, restaurant and food store owners can educate themselves about this common disorder. State of the art 3D animation, as well as an easy menu for quick review of specific chapters, creates an easy learning experience for children, adults and healthcare providers. This complete set of information is available nowhere else!
