BGS | Diagnosis and management of adult coeliac disease

This new guideline from the British Society for Gastroenterology (BSG) gives advice on the diagnosis and management of coeliac disease (CD). The diagnosis bits are useful for us as they widen the advice on who to do testing on. It is also useful to be aware of the ongoing management as there are some patients who are not under secondary care.

It is worth noting that 1% of the population have CD – so it is common.

There is a NICE guideline on this too, which is very similar in the advice it gives on testing.

"I was introduced to the local locum chambers several months ago when I made a career move from partnership. I now combine salaried and locum roles. The chambers provides helpful support, leadership, advice and governance and reduces professional isolation. This combination of support reassures me and helps me provide safe and consistent care to patients within the community . There is a useful, innovative online portal - LocumDeck - which helps me access local work and which has efficient systems for reconciliation of finance including pensions. I would highly recommend joining a locum chambers for any GPs starting out in the locum world ."
