Coeliac Awareness Week
13 March, 2020 - 21 March, 2020
COELIAC AWARENESS WEEK:
March 13-20 is Coeliac Awareness Week. Over 355 000 Australians have Coeliac Disease, however 80% of these people remain undiagnosed. People who have coeliac disease may experience many symptoms, while others may have very few. Coeliac Disease is a serious Auto-immune disease and can be triggered by foods that contain gluten (e.g. breads and cereals).
The common symptoms of Coeliac disease are:
- Persistent Fatigue
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Auto Immune Diseases
- Unexplained Fertility Issues
Coeliac Australia is working to raise awareness of Coeliac Disease with medical professionals and the broader public. If you or anyone you know is experiencing these symptoms, visit www.coeliac.org.au/assess to take a quick, online assessment to find out if you may be a part of the 80% of undiagnosed cases.
