Product Reviews, Restaurant Reviews and Recipes: All GLUTEN FREE!

Are you aware of “Awareness Week”…

While awareness of coeliac disease and the gluten-free diet is growing, there is still low awareness of the symptoms and how they affect people differently before diagnosis.

Coeliac UK believe people may also be potentially linking their symptoms to other conditions or not treating them seriously enough to seek further help. Creating a stronger link between their symptoms and coeliac disease will help people become more informed, empowered and confident to have their symptoms investigated and seek a diagnosis. They also know we have a job to do in helping to improve awareness of coeliac disease among healthcare professionals. Getting this right will help to reduce the time it takes to get a diagnosis and tackle misdiagnosis of other conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

These issues will guide the activities of Coeliac UK’s diagnosis campaign, which kicks off during Awareness Week, and aims to reach the half a million people currently living with undiagnosed coeliac disease in the UK.

Awareness Week is nearly here. Have you got your Pack? For details on how to get involved, what Coeliac UK are aiming to do during the Week and more, visit
