Nice | Coeliac disease

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

"I started using LocumDeck as one of our locums used it. It was easy to see her availability and when bookings are made I get confirmation of the booking and can view them on the calendar too. When invoices are sent, I can see it on the site, and digitally sign the pension form (this is one of the best bits!). It would be good if all locums used it, as then it would be so much easier for me to track my bookings and check their availability without emailing or texting them, waiting for a reply and then emailing back to confirm. It’s a great place for their documents to sit also. I can access it from home or my mobile which is useful as when I am not in surgery is when I usually need a locum!"
