Category - Gluten Free

A gluten free diet strictly excludes gluten, being a mixture of proteins found in wheat and related grains. These include barley, rye, oat, and all their species and hybrids (such as spelt, kamut, and triticale).

If you have coeliac disease, your immune system reacts to gluten and leads to damage to the lining of your gut. This causes symptoms of coeliac disease, including bloating, diarrhoea, nausea, tiredness and headaches. This only happens if gluten is eaten.

By avoiding all gluten (some people also need to avoid oats), your gut can heal and your symptoms should improve. The gluten free diet is the only treatment for coeliac disease.

On the gluten free diet you can eat any naturally such as meat, fish, fruit and vegetables, rice, potatoes and lentils.
