Coeliac Disease

A

Gastroenterologist

will treat Coeliac disease. It is a permanent,

autoimmune

disorder that causes an intestinal reaction to the dietary

gluten

that is found in wheat, barley, rye and oats. In coeliac disease the cells lining the small bowel (intestine) are damaged and inflamed. This interferes with the absorption of nutrients from food and may lead to deficiencies in vitamins (such as folic acid) and minerals (e.g. iron and calcium).  Coeliac disease is treated by a life-long

gluten

free diet.
