Coeliac Australia


I’d had type 1 diabetes since childhood, and a couple of years after I’d had my child my iron levels came back on the low side, so my endocrinologist insisted that we test for coeliac disease. When it came back positive, I didn’t believe him as I was entirely asymptomatic, so we retested the bloods and did the endoscopic biopsy which confirmed the diagnosis. It was that diagnosis that inspired me to study dietetics at university and changed my life for the better.
