      DescriptionA special public information comic aims to help raise awareness of coeliac disease, a serious but often overlooked condition. The body’s immune system reacts to gluten, a protein found in food containing wheat, barley and rye, making the body attack itself. One in 100 people have coeliac disease but half a million people in the UK and over 36,000 people in Scotland are undiagnosed.
