Coeliac Awareness Week 2016 Featured in The Yorkshire Post and Yorkshire Evening Post.
Currently there are estimated to be 500,000 people in the UK that are undiagnosed with the lifelong autoimmune condition called coeliac disease. The symptoms and wide and varied for each individual, yet each have something in common, the complete intolerance to gluten which ultimately damages the small intestine and can cause life-long health problems if a strict gluten-free diet is not followed after diagnosis.
Symptoms can include sickness, constant mouth ulcers, fatigue, stomach pain, a distended stomach, regular bouts of diarrhoea, anaemia and/or weight loss to name but a few of the nasty warning signs.
For my then toddler, now age 6, he experience a distended stomach that was tight as a little drum on a daily basis, regular sickness that caught us out unexpectantly at play centres, supermarkets…you name it, it happened! You can read more about our journey so far featured here in both The Yorkshire Post and Yorkshire Evening Post today.
