Nice | Coeliac disease

This is an updated guideline on coeliac disease from NICE. They have added a few extra presentations where people should be tested, but otherwise there is little that is new. See my coeliac disease review from earlier this year.

When to test.

In addition to the previous advice, they now suggest testing people with:

  • Severe or persistent mouth ulcers
  • Unexplained iron, B12 or folate deficiency
  • First degree relatives (NICE doesn’t say that they should be symptomatic, though the BGS advised that they should be symptomatic).

You should ‘consider testing’ those with:

  • metabolic bone disorders (eg osteomalacia)
  • unexplained neurological symptoms (eg peripheral neuropathy or ataxia)
  • unexplained subfertility or recurrent miscarriage
  • dental enamel defects
  • Down’s syndrome
  • Turner’s syndrome

"LocumDeck is so good and so intuitive that I am lost for words and utterly filled with glee.

It can send an email confirming the sessions that are booked and creates and emails invoices direct to the practice for you. These contain links to your beautifully laid out ‘credentials’ page with all your relevant documents, and a model contract that is all ready for you to accept or edit.

It automatically produces and sends the locum form A, and will produce locum form B. It also acts as the calendar... And it all happens automatically. It is really less than a minute to invoice and do the pension forms, with everything calculated perfectly."
