CHICAGO — Kristen Adam, 11, lives with Celiac disease—an auto-immune disorder where people can’t eat gluten because it will damage their small intestine.

Gluten is usually found in grains such as rye, barley and wheat.

Living gluten free can be very challenging as there are many foods that contain it.

So, Kristen enlisted the help of her teacher, and wrote a book about living with the disease.

“I wrote this book so kids with Celiac’s disease didn’t feel lonely how I did in the beginning when I was first diagnosed,” Adam said.

Adam’s book is called “Dear Celiac” and can be found on Amazon.
