If you've recently just been diagnosed with Coeliac disease you must have a lot of questions & we can help!
Change can be daunting, especially when it effects your whole diet.
1. See a dietician
After diagnosis your GP or Consultant should refer you to a dietician who will be able to give you individual & practical advice on how to follow a gluten free diet.
If you're not sure if you've been referred to a dietician, check with your doctor. Consultations with a dietitian in the NHS are free.
2. Talk to your GP about getting products on prescription.
- - see our prescriptions page for more information.
3. Join the Coeliac community!
