Close to the Bone Study

Bone health is often suboptimal in young women with coeliac disease for reasons that are not clear. The Close to the Bone Study will investigate the links between bone health and lifestyle factors, specifically a gluten free diet consumed by women, aged 18-40, with coeliac disease and non-coeliac gluten sensitivity compared to a healthy control group. The study aims to recruit about 140 women from the lower North Island.
