Coeliac Disease: Review of diagnosis and management
Coeliac disease is a common immune-mediated systemic condition, manifested by small intestinal enteropathy triggered by exposure to gluten (a complex of water insoluble proteins in wheat, rye and barley). There are a number of recent guidelines for the management of coeliac disease in adults and children, and for the transition of paediatric patients to adult care.
This module reviews current international guidelines and the recent literature, and recommends an approach for Australian practitioners.
