Coeliac Awareness Week 2017

In Australia, Coeliac Awareness Week will run from Mar 13-20 in 2017. This is a very important week in the calendar of Coeliac Australia as it’s a chance to shine the light on coeliac disease and gluten sensitivity.

“Coeliac disease is a serious medical illness, affecting 1 in 70 of the population. However, 80 per cent of affected Australians remain undiagnosed. Coeliac Australia aims to reach the many thousands of Australians unaware they are living with coeliac disease and help them to recognise symptoms and take steps towards diagnosis and treatment.”

coeliac awareness weekThere are a lot of possible symptoms that are caused by coeliac disease. Some of these include:

  • gastrointestinal symptoms
  • fatigue
  • iron deficiency
  • weight loss
  • bone and joint pains
  • skin rashes
  • easy bruising of the skin

If you think you may have issues with gluten then we recommend seeing your GP or visit this page on the Coeliac Australia website to find out more about diagnosis.
