Coeliac Disease is a chronic autoimmune condition affecting 1 in 100 people in the UK.
When someone who has coeliac disease ingests gluten, their body responds by attacking its own cells and damaging the lining of the small intestine. This leads to villous atrophy (flattened small intestine) and can result in further complications.
Currently, the only available treatment for coeliac disease is a strict adherence to a gluten-free diet, which can be a major and initially overwhelming undertaking. Some people may still have ongoing symptoms despite following a strict gluten-free diet, therefore, it is important to get support from an experienced clinician who can get to the root of the problem.
