What is Coeliac Disease?
Coeliac disease is a genetic autoimmune disorder where the ingestion of gluten leads to severe damage in thesmall intestine. It is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide.
The only treatment for the disease is a strict gluten-free diet, which means no more beer, cakes or even chocolate. As Coeliac disease becomes a more common diagnosis in the UK, many restaurants and dining places are starting to offer gluten free menus.
However, even the smallest of crumbs from gluten containing foods can cause the biggest of upsets which means cross contamination is the biggest threat to coeliac suffers. The most common symptoms are, chronic diarrhoea, abdominal pain and weight loss.
