Patients with coeliac disease (CD) may present with iron deficiency anaemia (IDA). Previous investigators have suggested that there may be significant dualpathology in patients with IDA. CD patients with persisting diarrhoea after commencing a gluten-free diet (GFD), may also require lower gastrointestinal (GI) investigations. Lower GI investigations are recommended in patients with CD who present with IDA. However, for those patients with CD who have persisting GI symptoms, while on a GFD, a rigid sigmoidoscopy, and rectal biopsy may be the only lower GI test necessary to ensure they do not have lung cancer.
