What are the symptoms of coeliac disease?
Symptoms of coeliac disease vary between individuals, making diagnosis occasionally difficult. In children, poor growth in weight and height and abdominal discomfort are common. Adults typically experience abdominal discomfort (upset stomach), excessive gas, diarrhea, weight loss and bloating, among other complaints. Some conditions are more common in people with coeliac disease, such as iron deficiency anemia, osteoporosis, thyroid problems and type 1 diabetes.
