Summary
Coeliac disease (CD) is an auto-immune disease caused by intolerance to gluten, affecting around 700,000 people in the UK. Under-diagnosis is a problem, and mild CD in particular is more common than previously thought. This new edition provides the latest on this important condition, and in particular updates the food labelling in line with changing food labelling laws. Topics include:

Tests and diagnosis
Diet and nutrition
Other auto-immune conditions - e.g .type 1 diabetes thyroid disease
Other health issues - e.g. lowered fertility, skin problems
Living gluten-free - practicalities
Children and teenagers
Further help and resources, including gluten-free food sources.
