- About Us
Coeliac Australia is here to support you with information and resources as you guide your patients through their coeliac disease diagnosis and help them manage their gluten free diet.
Health Professional membership through Coeliac state organisations is available to keep you up to date with the latest in coeliac disease and the gluten free diet. The resources you receive will assist you in answering questions from patients and will increase your overall understanding of coeliac disease. Members also receive additional benefits, ask your state Coeliac organisation for more details on these benefits.
Encourage your patients to join their state Coeliac organisation to access credible information and ongoing support. Dr Jason Tye-Din, a gastroenterologist specialising in coeliac disease and Chairman of Coeliac Australia Medical Advisory Committee, has found that of his patients, the ones who become members of Coeliac Australia are better equipped for, and more able to adhere to, a strict gluten free lifestyle than those who try to do it alone.
Coeliac Australia is committed to providing its members with the most current and relevant information. We have a panel of leading experts available to advise on best practice for diagnosis and management of coeliac disease and to ensure we remain up to date with current coeliac disease and gluten research. Our Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) consists of leading adult and paediatric Gastroenterologists, Immunologists, General Practitioners and Accredited Practising Dietitians.
