Dr. Kim Faulkner-Hogg
You may be wondering, what is coeliac disease? What is the difference between wheat and gluten intolerance? Is there a cure for this disease? How do we find out more about this disease? Who gets it?
There are so many questions around Coeliac Disease. We sat down with Dr. Kim Faulkner-Hogg as she gives a thorough explanation of Coeliac Disease, the long term problems it can have, takes us through the diagnostic journey and how we do not need to be anxious when eating out or buying food due to the high standards for Australian Food Labeling. Kim provides many tips on how you can live a life with Coeliac Disease and not allow it to affect your quality of life- it is about being prepared.
