When gluten is eaten, the lining of the small intestine becomes inflamed. This causes flattening of the intestinal villi which means absorption of nutrients becomes more difficult.
As Coeliac disease is a life long condition, it is important to have regular follow ups with your dietitian. From the initial gluten free dietary education session, we can further assist you with navigating label reading, recipe modification, eating out and travelling. Nutrient deficiencies are common and untreated can lead to long term health problems, such as osteoporosis.
We are known for our expertise in gastro-intestinal (gut / bowel) nutrition, however, every member of our team has their own additional, specialty areas.
