Coeliac disease

Coeliac disease is an immune mediated medical condition which results in a life long intolerance to gluten. Research indicates that the prevalence of Coeliac Disease in  Australia is about 1 in 70. If you have a family member with Coeliac Disease you have a 1 in 10 chance of also developing the disease.

When people with Coeliac Disease eat gluten the lining of the small bowel becomes inflamed and this can cause a range of symptoms and health complications if left untreated.  A strict life long gluten free diet is the current recommended treatment and the guidance of an experienced dietitian is essential as any restricted diet may lead to nutrient deficiencies if not managed properly.
