Who hasCoeliac disease - could YOU have it?

Feeling tired or exhausted a lot of the time? Wanting more energy? Always seem to have low iron levels? Struggling with irritable bowel or gastric reflux? Get moody or irritable? Bothered by headaches and migraine?

You are not alone. These are the vague but taxing symptoms of coeliac disease: when your gut gets damaged and you feel unwell because of the unpleasant affects of gluten. Gluten is the substance (found in the grains of wheat, rye and barley) which causes one in a hundred people to be struck by coeliac disease. In addition, gluten makes many others unwell with gluten sensitivity.

So how can you find out if you might have coeliac disease? Well, the first step is to consider the possibility. Because your symptoms can come on slowly, over decades, this illness creeps up on you. So I recommend that anyone who has any chronic symptoms should get their blood tested for coeliac disease.
