Gluten free foods on prescription set to be restricted

Comment

Gluten-free foods should not be on prescription at all. A plan was being discussed in 2005 to issue coeliacs with cards to use to obtain their own choice 'off the shelf' at a discount. This should have been persued much faster. Burdening GPs with the burocracy, and coeliacs having to request prescriptions are both ridiculous, when a discount card would be so much easier, and cheaper. Prescribed foods cost VERY MUCH more than the identical item 'off the shelf'!
