New digital resource to support you after diagnosis
When you're first diagnosed with coeliac disease, you should be referred to a dietitian to help you get started on a gluten free diet. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, this appointment might be delayed, so we have developed new support to bridge this gap and help you get started.
You may not be able to see your NHS dietitian right now, but Nicola, one of our expert helpline dietitians is here to talk you through coeliac disease, the gluten free diet, reading food labels and cooking and eating out on a gluten free diet. Find out more about Nicola's work here.
You can watch the videos below from the comfort of your own home and if you have any questions please get in touch with us by calling our helpline (0333 332 2033), or by email for more support.
