Lorna Carr
BSc(Hons) RD
Coeliac UK Dietitian

Coeliac disease is not an allergy or simple food intolerance; it is genetic and life-long, although it may be diagnosed at any age. The nurse is in a prime position to help support people through the diagnosis and treatment of coeliac disease, as Lorna Carr explains

Coeliac disease is an autoimmune condition triggered by eating gluten, a protein from the cereals wheat, rye and barley. Some people may also be sensitive to oats.
