Coeliac Disease

Coeliac Clinic

Slough, Berkshire

What is it?

Coeliac disease is a lifelong autoimmune disease which is associated with chronic inflammation of the small intestine. Dietary proteins known as gluten, which are present in wheat, barley and rye, activate an abnormal immune response in the intestinal mucosa, which can lead to malabsorption of nutrients.

It is estimated that one in a hundred people have the condition and symptoms include bloating, diarrhoea, nausea, wind, constipation, tiredness, sudden or unexpected weight loss, (not in all cases) hair loss and anaemia and even skin disorders. 

Symptoms

Some common symptoms include:
  • Abdominal cramps
  • diarrhoea
  • gas
  • nausea and vomiting
  • bloating
  • bone and joint pain
  • depression
  • weakness and fatigue
  • fluid retention
  • persistent hunger
  • iron deficiency
  • anaemia malnutrition and nutrition deficiencies

Treatment

Once you have been medically diagnosed, the only treatment for coeliac disease is a stricty gluten-free diet, which can be difficult, but there are now lots of food options available in the UK. Also a number of shops produce and sell gluten free ranges of every day food as well, so you can still eat some of the foods you love. The good thing is that once gluten is removed from the diet, you should start to feel much better.

At BRIS Wellbeing Clinic we can help you develop a diet that keeps you healthy and gives you the necessary nutrients even though you have coeliac disease. It can be difficult to eat a healthy diet when such a large food group is excluded from your diet, but it is possible, and you can be and feel healthy again once you eradicate gluten from your diet.
