Episode 2: How to help someone with coeliac disease  

In the second episode, Coeliac UK ambassador Becky Excell and radio presenter Aimee Vivian sit down to chat about a really important topic - how to help someone with coeliac disease and specifically how to navigate the emotional side of living gluten free. 

Living with coeliac disease can significantly impact someone’s mental health, leading to a wide range of emotions - from feeling embarrassed and anxious at social gatherings where food is involved to feeling frustrated by comments or questions that you receive from others who don't understand the condition. 

Becky and Aimee share some situations they have been in previously and highlight how it helped them or didn’t help them (!) at the time, in the hope that you can learn how to navigate similar situations in the future. So whether you have coeliac disease yourself or know someone who does, this podcast is worth sharing with friends, family or colleagues so they can understand how best to help in the future.
