We explore: Coeliac disease; making sense of the symptoms
As is the case for many autoimmune disorders, making sense of the symptoms can sometimes see you wandering around in circles. Coeliac disease is one of these disorders, where the very general yet in some cases severe symptoms of an aversion to gluten are often mistaken for something else, or in three out of four cases never properly diagnosed. This episode you’ll learn what it is about coeliac disease that makes it hard to fully recognise, and some of the innovative measures trying to identify gluten intolerance in early stages of life.
Speakers: Dr Olga Shimoni, Michael Wallach and Anantdeep Kaur from School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, University of Technology Sydney.
