Dodgy tummy? Bloating after bread? Coeliac Awareness Week runs from 13-20 March around the country promoting the message of celiac disease and the importance of getting tested.

Coeliac Australia says coeliac disease is one of the most under-diagnosed conditions in Australia. With broad-ranging symptoms ranging from abdominal upset to failure to thrive (in kids), to weight loss and even bruising, it can sometimes be difficult to tell what’s a genuine cause for concern. Coeliac Week aims to encourage symptom awareness among the public and general practitioners, and promotes the importance of getting tested.
