This novel was written to focus on some relevant aspects of a disease from the patients’ perspective but also to show the caregivers’ perspective.

It is about celiac disease for two reasons. First, celiac disease is an emerging disease, so frequent to be considered a ‘social epidemic’ and it involves several levels of intervention, beside the medical one. Secondly, the writers know well celiac disease because of many years of work with celiac patients.

The story is about a common case of celiac disease, not a real one but a representative one: a young woman, her symptoms that worsen and allow the diagnosis.

Celiac disease is not a rare disease and one must think of it. Every action intended to improve the awareness of celiac disease will increase the diagnosis rate but also ease the burden of a ‘special’ life.

A diagnosis of celiac disease gives a great opportunity to improve one’s people life, both because of better health and better quality of life.

The aim of this novel is to offer a simple tool to increase the knowledge of celiac disease in people but also to ‘humanize’ as much as possible what is for someone an extraordinary event (Imprint: Nova Biomedical )
