Episode notes

Coeliac disease is a serious auto-immune disease where gluten damages the small intestine. It affects 1 in 100 people, yet 70% of sufferers haven't been diagnosed. Coeliac UK's Lorna Gardner explains all. We talk to supermum Rebecca Smith whose daughter Bethany was eating razor blades, chalk, and bits of the house. She thought it may be due to Bethany's Type 1 diabetes but her own research led to a coeliac disease diagnosis and miraculous recovery.  #coeliac #celiac
