Coeliac disease

Coeliac disease has variable manifestations: gastrointestinal symptoms (often mild), deficiency symptoms, associated conditions. Antibody testing can be used for initial screening. As a rule, the diagnosis should be confirmed by small bowel biopsy (gastroscopy). Encourage the patient to adhere to a gluten-free diet.
