From bloating and heartburn to diarrhoea and constipation, if you're regularly suffering after mealtime, your FREE Digestive Health Check could get to the bottom of things.
The digestive system is responsible for two major roles in the body. Not only does it extract all the important nutrients from food, but it also protects us from bad bacteria and disease. That’s why it’s so important to take good care of your digestive system and give it the support it needs, so it can perform both these jobs efficiently.
Your Guardian pharmacist will discuss any tummy troubles with you during your FREE Digestive Health Check and advise if you need to take any further action.
What is coeliac disease?
Coeliac Disease is a common condition that affects around 1 in every 70 Australians.1 It is estimated that around 80% of people with Coeliac Disease do not know they have it. It is an auto-immune disease, in which the body attacks its own intestine whenever gluten is ingested. This makes the small intestine inflamed and reduces its ability to absorb essential nutrients.2 If you have Coeliac Disease, avoiding gluten can help to improve or even eliminate these digestive symptoms.
