Monday marks the start of Coeliac UK's Awareness Week

IBS poster for Is it coeliac disease? campaign

13 May 2019

Monday 13 May marks the first day of Awareness Week! Help us find the half a million people living with undiagnosed coeliac disease by encouraging anyone with symptoms to complete our online assessment to see if they should be tested for coeliac disease.

Symptoms of coeliac disease range from mild to severe, and can include:

  • bloating
  • diarrhoea
  • nausea
  • wind
  • constipation
  • tiredness
  • mouth ulcers
  • sudden or unexpected weight loss (but not in all cases)
  • anaemia.

Only 30% of people with coeliac disease have a diagnosis, so help us get the diagnosis message out and get more people on a path to feeling well again. 

And get online on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see what we’re posting and share our information so that more people can see our messages.
