Learn what’s going on so nothing holds you back.
Some of us simply can’t process gluten – but not everyone knows that’s what is causing our bloating, headaches, discomfort or tiredness.
Coeliac disease is a genetic, autoimmune digestive disorder thought to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide. When someone with the disease accidentally eats food containing gluten, it triggers an immune response that causes the lining of the small intestine to become inflamed and damaged.
This is painful and makes it difficult for the body to absorb nutrients and vitamins from the food. For that reason, those with the disease are advised to avoid all gluten completely. If not treated, coeliac disease can lead to other serious health problems such as osteoporosis, bowel cancer, and can cause infertility.
