Coeliac Awareness Week 2015: Interview with Dr James
This week, it is coeliac awareness week and I’ve managed to ask a few questions to Dr James about the disease. What makes it even more interesting is that he himself is a coeliac too.
MAZWO: Can you explain to those who don’t know, what is coeliac disease?
James: Coeliac disease is an autoimmune condition where gluten (a protein found mainly in wheat and barley) causes the body to react and causes an inflammatory response. This reaction damages the gut, especially the small intestine.
