We are all in this together, let's help each other…

I have been a Coeliac for over 40 years so know quite a bit about being on a gluten free diet – so I am here to help. If there is anything you are trying to find and can't, let me know and I will see what I can do.

Coeliac Disease is a lifelong autoimmune disease caused by a reaction to gluten (a protein found in wheat, rye and barley). When a Coeliac eats gluten their immune system reacts by damaging the lining of the small intestine.

1 in 100 people in the UK are now diagnosed with Coeliac Disease, and about the same number choose to be on a gluten free diet because it makes them feel better.

Being diagnosed as a Coeliac, or needing to be on the diet for other reasons, can be quite difficult and sometimes frightening. 

I like to help people on this special diet and am an active committee member of the Bournemouth & Poole Coeliac Group. 

Coeliac UK have lots of information and support on their Coronavirus Information Hub
