Coeliac UK have an online petition underway, to lobby the government for earlier diagnosis for coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetitformis. So far they have just over 3,000 signatures – but that is less than 10% of coeliacs in the UK
Left undiagnosed coeliac disease can lead to serious complications yet four out of five people remain undiagnosed.
Please consider signing the on-line petition to add your name to the campaign calling on the Government to recognise the importance of early diagnosis and provide more appropriate training for GPs.
You can sign the petition here.
