Gluten-Free Diet

Gluten-Free Diet

Sufferers of Coeliac disease or gluten intolerance are recommended to follow this Gluten-free plan. It will help you follow a healthy and varied diet while cutting out all sources of gluten from your diet.

The foods contained are naturally free from gluten and will help you to avoid the symptoms associated with both Coeliac disease and gluten intolerance. A recipe-based or combination plan is recommended for a greater variety of meals.

Such a diet is essential for those who suffer from coeliac disease or those who have dermatitis herpetiformis (a gluten triggered skin sensitivity).

Many gluten free foods like pasta, bread, bread mix, biscuits, crispbread, cakes and flour are available on prescription under the NHS. Certain sections of the population are exempt from paying prescription charges, for example, children, pensioners and pregnant women. Should you not be exempt, it is economical if you purchase a “season ticket” type of prescription.

Should you be diagnosed with coeliac disease, it is advisable to remain on a gluten free diet for life.
