What is coeliac disease?

Coeliac disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the small intestine is damaged from the consumption of gluten. This causes the body to absorb food and nutrients poorly which can lead to vitamin and mineral deficiencies and sometimes malnutrition.

Coeliac disease symptoms

Coeliac disease symptoms can vary greatly from person to person, some sufferers exhibit no symptoms at all. Some of the symptoms associated with coeliac disease can include:

  • diarrhoea
  • weight loss
  • nausea
  • flatulence
  • abdominal discomfort or bloating
  • tiredness
  • feeling weak
  • poor weight gain in children or delayed growth

If you think you may have coeliac disease it is recommended that you visit your health professional promptly for diagnosis. A specific range of tests are needed for confirmation of the disease. It is also recommended that you continue your normal diet prior to and during these tests to provide an accurate diagnosis.

What is gluten?

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, triticale and oats. People suffering from coeliac disease must exclude all these gluten containing grains from their diet as well as any products derived from them.

There are many gluten-containing foods in the western diet such as:

  • bread, pizza, most flat breads
  • pasta, cous cous, semolina
  • pastries, pies
  • cereals
  • biscuits
  • cakes
  • noodles
  • crumbed and battered foods

Other foods which can also contain not so obvious amounts of gluten are:

  • some hamburgers, sausages, rissoles
  • small goods such as ham, salami, etc
  • sauces, dressings
  • confectionery - liquorice
  • soups and dried stock cubes
  • chips
  • beer
  • malt
