Importance of medical diagnosis

Getting your doctor to confirm a diagnosis of coeliac disease is important for many reasons, including: 

 

  • To understand the gluten-free diet as the only treatment. Following a lifelong gluten-free diet will be a big change to your eating and shopping habits. You may need help to choose safe foods and keep a balanced diet. If your child has coeliac disease, monitoring their growth and development is very important.
  • To be able to get gluten-free foods on prescription. People who are medically diagnosed with coeliac disease are able to receive prescriptions for gluten-free substitute products which can help you maintain the diet.
  • To make sure family members are aware of the condition as it can run in families. If a first degree relative has coeliac disease then prevalence increases to 1 in 10. Awareness of a medical diagnosis of coeliac disease within a family can help identify the disease if a relative also has or develops symptoms. This is known as screening.
