Hi everyone,

This is a virtual event by GIG’s education coordinator, Lola O’Rourke to School nurses on how to recognise gluten sensitivity in school children please see:

I think how the Gluten Intolerance Group are spreading awareness and giving practical advice is commendable and I'm proud to be a member.

Thanks Jerry,

Awareness is essential and being a member of a group really does help with emotional support, practicalities and understanding.

Best wishes

Hi nellie237 sorry for the delay yes it’s Fred the flour grader. 😊

Really good news. National screening of all children for the condition would be even better. I can’t help but think that there are a lot of undiagnosed people out there who could be helped. I had anaemia as a child along with lots of allergies and asthma. A simple blood test could have helped me a lot earlier.

Absolutely MTC, they screen children in Italy and found a prevalence of 1.6%
