Coeliac disease, the most severe form of gluten intolerance, is an autoimmune condition where the lining of small intestine is damaged by gluten (a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, oats)

Coeliac disease severely affects nutrient absorption and can lead to malnutrition, depression and autoimmune conditions. Symptoms such as bloating, pain, constipation/diarrhoea are common to most sufferers.

Coeliac disease can be confirmed with a blood test and a small bowel biopsy. If you suspect Celiac disease, it is important not to self-diagnose and stop eating gluten containing foods until after you perform the test. The reason for this is that after you have avoided gluten for a while, it is difficult to establish whether you have Celiac disease, gluten intolerance or are your symptoms caused by other issues.

If you have been diagnosed with Celiac disease, the only way to manage it is with a strict, life-long gluten free diet. I can help you navigate through your diagnosis by teaching you how to follow this diet as hassle free as possible while avoiding any possible nutrient deficiencies. I will provide you with easy to make gluten free meal ideas as well as shopping guides, pantry lists and gluten free recipes to make your transition into gluten free life as easy as possible.
