Coeliac Disease In Children
Coeliac disease is one of the most common chronic diseases affecting children in the UK, estimated to affect 1 in 100 children.
The symptoms of coeliac disease mean that it is often mistaken for other childhood conditions. This blog post aims to help parents who are concerned that their child may have coeliac disease to understand more about the condition, including the symptoms to look out for and how the condition is diagnosed.
Book a coeliac blood test
If your child is experiencing symptoms of coeliac disease or if you have a family history of the condition, it is always best to see your family doctor or paediatrician. Booking a blood test with Childhealthy can be an important step in getting an accurate diagnosis.
If the results are positive, our paediatric dietitians can provide tailored advice and guidance on implementing a gluten-free diet and managing the condition through proper nutrition.
If you suspect that your child may have coeliac disease, book an appointment and nutritional assessment with Childhealthy. We are committed to providing peace of mind for parents and comprehensive and compassionate care for children.
