Coeliac disease is an immune system reaction to gluten (a protein commonly found in wheat, rye, barley and oats). This reaction damages the bowel and can cause a number of long term, serious health conditions if not treated properly. We specialise in the dietary management of coeliac disease and the bowel related conditions that can result.
The diagnosis of coeliac disease can sometimes be very overwhelming. Knowing which foods are safe for you to eat and those that will make your condition worse can be a mine field. We can help navigate you through a gluten free diet which is advocated for the treatment of coeliac disease.
If you would like to find out more about the disease itself, this is a great site: Coeliac Australia
