Coeliac disease is a lifelong autoimmune disorder triggered by eating gluten, a common protein found in wheat, or other similar proteins in rye, barley and oats.

They become inflamed and flattened, which reduces the surface area that would normally absorb nutrients.

Patient Brochures

Skin cancer occurs when cells in the skin are altered in a way that causes them to give rise to many other abnormal cells in an uncontrolled fashion.

Prolonged exposure to sunlight is the most common cause of this alteration.

Australia has the highest rate of all skin cancers in the world and, because Queensland has the climate most suited to outdoor activity, it is not surprising that the incidence of skin cancer is highest in this state.

Most commonly, skin cancers occur on areas frequently exposed to the sun.

How do you know if you have an STI? You don't!
