INVITE TO IW COELIAC SUPPORT GROUP FIRST MEETING

Community Action Isle of Wight and the Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group are holding a first meeting for a new support group for islanders living with coeliac disease and those who suspect that they might have undiagnosed coeliac disease and would benefit from understanding more about symptoms of the disease, diagnosing it and how to manage their diet.

The idea to create a local support group was put forward during a public consultation meeting on gluten-free foods on prescription which was attended by mostly people who have coeliac disease. According to national statistics, 50% of coeliacs are undiagnosed and are living with the consequences without knowing the cause. Diagnosing people is a key priority so people can learn how to manage their diet and avoid gluten and stay well.

Date: January 17, 2017

Time: 5-7 pm
