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

“Is it Coeliac Disease?” Awareness Week is on NOW…

As a Coeliac who follows a GLUTEN FREE diet to manage my condition, I was keen to support Coeliac UK and their push to increase the diagnosis and awareness of my disease.

One of the hard-hitting posters from Coeliac UK for Awareness Week.

Did you know around 1% of the UK population has coeliac disease?

Did you know only 24% of those with the condition are medically diagnosed.

This means that half a million people in the UK are living with coeliac disease, undiagnosed so the Awareness Week hopes to put people who are suffering with the symptoms of coeliac disease on a pathway to diagnosis, so they can be properly supported to manage their condition and avoid long term health complications. They aim to halve the length of time to confirm a diagnosis, which is currently on average, 13 years, and reduce misdiagnosis of IBS by 50%. The long term goal is to confirm a diagnosis for an additional 250,000 people by 2020, so that these people are freed from not knowing what is causing their symptoms, pain and suffering.

I also feature on the promotional materials which are to be distributed to GP surgeries, Chemists and Pharmacies across the UK:

Is it Coeliac Disease? leaflet with Yours Truely!

Is it Coeliac Disease? leaflet with Yours Truely!

Have to confess, learning to fly was fun, if somewhat painful. The harness was tight, rough and bruising but all for the sake of art…

From concept art to final poster and leaflet.

“I can fly…”
