How is coeliac disease managed?

Coeliac disease is a lifelong condition, treated by excluding gluten from your diet.

Once diagnosis is confirmed and a gluten-free diet is started, most individuals should feel better in a short space of time.  Although you will need to pay closer attention to what you eat, there is a range of staple gluten-free foods on prescription and an ever increasing range of gluten-free foods in the supermarkets that will help you to live a very normal life. To help you, we have provided a list of gluten-free foods to get you started for your first week gluten-free and a guide to how to avoid gluten contamination.  There are also lots of useful hints and tips in our gluten-free diet section.
