Coeliac Disease is a chronic condition where your body’s immune system has an inflammatory response when you eat gluten. During the Covid-19 pandemic, it is even more important to stick to your gluten-free diet, if you have already been diagnosed with Coeliac Disease. However, if you experience symptoms, it can be challenging to seek medical advice during this time. It is Coeliac Disease Awareness Week and Dr Rishi Goel, Consultant Gastroenterologist at New Victoria Hospital, helps you to understand this condition and identify symptoms during the Coronavirus emergency.
