Healthy Living – Coeliac Disease

By Katrina RoeWednesday 25 May 2011

Next time you go shopping, take a walk down the health food aisle in your supermarket. You’ll notice a growing number of gluten-free products, including pasta, cereals, biscuits and cake mixes.  People give up gluten for many different reasons, whether due to intolerance, wheat allergy or coeliac disease.

Coeliac Disease is found in 1% of the population, but in spite of increased awareness about the condition, 75% of people with Coeliac Disease remain undiagnosed.  However, living with undiagnosed and untreated coeliac disease has serious health consequences.

Penny Dellsperger is a Dietician with the Coeliac Society of NSW and she explains what Coeliac Disease is, how to live gluten-free and what the development of a new vaccine could mean for the gluten-free industry.
