About

Many Coeliac sufferers experience years of painful, debilitating symptoms before they are diagnosed and, because it is a hereditary disease, many must watch their children or grandchildren cope with the same symptoms. For every 70 children enjoying biscuits and cakes at birthday parties, one child will experience symptoms such as diarrhoea, vomiting or difficulty concentrating courtesy of Coeliac disease.

Coeliac New Zealand is a not-for profit formed in 1973 to promote the welfare of children and adults medically diagnosed with Coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis. Coeliac New Zealand is part of a group of internationally recognised organisations that engage in supporting this demographic.
