Why is this? Approximately one per cent of New Zealanders is thought to have coeliac disease and at present most are undiagnosed. Some people are genetically predisposed to developing coeliac disease, which causes digestive problems when they eat gluten-containing foods – wheat, rye and barley. Intolerance to gluten causes the body to produce antibodies, which damages the lining of the small bowel and affects absorption of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Classic symptoms are diarrhoea, weight loss and bloating but it is now recognised coeliac disease has many different presentations. Diagnosis should be considered in people with unexplained fatigue, early osteoporosis, irritable bowel syndrome, iron deficiency and numerous other conditions. If a simple blood test is positive a biopsy is taken from the bowel via gastroscopy. It is an important condition to diagnose and a strict gluten-free diet enables the bowel to heal and symptoms to improve. Though difficult initially most coeliacs feel a lot better when they stick to this diet. Food labels need to be read carefully as it is surprising how many foods contain gluten. Currently many people choose a gluten-free diet without a diagnosis of coeliac disease. It is important to be tested for coeliac disease with a blood test before embarking on the diet. Once gluten is excluded from everyday eating the tests become much harder to interpret. There is currently debate about the benefits of the diet in the absence of coeliac disease though many non-coeliacs report to feeling better without gluten. If you are considering a gluten-free diet for health reasons make sure you have a blood test first. If you, your friends or family have symptoms see your family doctor.
