About Coeliacs Disease

Coeliac DiseaseCoeliac disease is relatively common in Australia, affecting around one in every 100 people.

 

The condition leads to the immune system reacting abnormally to gluten, which in turn may lead to minor bowel damage.

 

Areas of the bowel become inflamed or flattened, meaning the ability of the surface area able to absorb nutrients is reduced, therefore creating various gastrointestinal problems.

 

Symptoms of Coeliac disease often include fatigue and lethargy, anaemia, nausea and stomach cramps.

 

Children, on the other hand, may suffer from irritability and poor weight gain or weight loss.

 

The best management for Coeliac disease is a gluten-free diet, which our experts at Terry White Chemists will be able to advise upon.
