Do you know the difference between gluten intolerance and Coeliac disease? or how hard it can be to diagnose the latter? Also do you know how life impacting going undiagnosed can be, yet how prevalent Coeliac disease is in society? These are all questions I didn’t know the answers to, so I chatted to Ben Hampton from ‘A Gluten Free Podcast’ who’s gone on an epic journey of discovery ever since being diagnosed with Coeliac disease himself.
1-in-70 people are estimated to have Coeliac Disease in Australia, but around 80% of those go un-diagnosed
If you’d like to find out more about Coeliac disease and living gluten free you should check out Ben’s 4-part children’s special, ‘Children With Coeliac Disease Part 1: The Sooner We Can Catch It, The Better’
If you’d like to get in touch with or follow Ben, you can find him on Instagram here: @a.gffamily
I you’re keen to find some good gluten free recipes like the one Ben talked about, he recommends the book ‘Easy Gluten Free’ by Helen Tzouganatos.
Well that’s about all from me for now. Hope you have a great week and as always enjoy your caffeinated beverage.
