Rodney’s coeliac story

I was diagnosed with coeliac disease nearly a year ago after suffering several years of upset stomachs caused by what I thought were tropical bugs from my overseas development work.   I should have realised that this was not the case since It was always worse when I came back to the UK where a richer diet, often full of gluten is more prevalent.

On seeing the dietican I realised that it would be quite easy to adapt my diet as there are more and more gluten free foods available now than even 12 months ago.

I like my sausages and have always enjoyed black farmer premium pork so was very pleased to find I could continue to eat them.  My diet has always consisted of lots of fresh fruit and vegetables so I have found it easy to adjust and I get my bread on prescription.

I have learned to be more careful reading the small print now to avoid products that contain the slightest trace of gluten which can cause much discomfort when your body is gluten free,
