Fish and chip restaurant in Skipton is proud to remind local people that they can cater for gluten-free diets with full Coeliac UK accreditation. 

  • Gluten-free fish and chips are available at Bizzie Lizzie's on Swadford Street, Skipton. 
  • Coeliac Awareness Week  2019 is being celebrated 13 - 19th May. 
  • Local people have been describing how being a coeliac affects their diet. 

What is coeliac disease?

As described by Coeliac UK , Coeliac disease is a lifelong autoimmune disease caused by a reaction to gluten.

Around 1 in 100 people have the condition, and symptoms include diarrhoea, constipation, vomiting, stomach cramps, mouth ulcers, fatigue and anaemia.

It can be treated with a long-term gluten free diet.

"I'm in my fifties now, it took me until I was in my early forties to realise actually what the problem was. 

"I was really quite ill, I was in hospital for quite a long time, and it was never diagnosed what it was.

"Much later on, I lived with all the normal symptoms of someone who is gluten intolerant, and then I started to develop a chronic daily headache. 

"I cut gluten out of my diet just to rule it out, and it all stopped within three days."

Colin Unwin, coeliac disease sufferer in Skipton
