Government to restrict GP prescribing of gluten-free foods from next month

Comment

Disappointing. Coeliac is an autoimmune condition, not a lifestyle choice. Poor control can increase the risk of bowel cancer. Gluten free food cost x3-4 times more. No different to thyroid, RA T1DM etc. This is targeting whats seen as an 'easy group'to attack. How about stopping the NHS paying for self-inflicted conditions instead!
