Coeliac disease directory
Coeliac disease is an autoimmune disorder that damages the lining of the small intestine following the digestion of gluten. Gluten is a protein found in common grains such as wheat, rye and barley. Symptoms might include wind and bloating, weight loss and fatigue. According to the NHS, coeliac disease affects around one in every 100 people in the UK. The only known treatment for coeliac disease is to maintain a gluten-free diet. Sometimes the casein found in dairy can mimic gluten protein and can also cause a coeliac response in the small intestine.
