Coeliac UK is the leading charity working for people with coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis (DH).
Help raise awareness of Coeliac Disease.
2. Coeliac disease (pronounced see-liac, spelled celiac disease in other countries) is an autoimmune disease.
3. Gluten, which is found in wheat, barley and rye triggers an immune reaction in people with coeliac disease.
4. Coeliac, contrary to popular belief, is not rare, is not a food allergy, and it is not only found in children.
5. It is a life-long condition, symptoms can affect any area of your body, and eating any amount of gluten can be damaging to people with coeliac.
