Coeliac disease has a prevalence of 1-2% in the Australian population, but as it commonly presents in an undifferentiated manner, most affected people remain undetected. Early diagnosis and appropriate management is essential to address its substantial impact on quality of life. Additionally, GPs are increasingly confronted with patients complaining of wheat or gluten sensitivity, many of whom have self diagnosed or sought alternative care. Clinical encounters can therefore be challenging. For these reasons, coeliac disease is an important condition for GP supervisors to educate their registrars.
