We want to ensure that patients receive appropriate dietary and lifestyle advice as well as appropriate investigations and treatment, relevant to their condi-tion whether this is coeliac disease, non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, IBS, food intolerance or food allergy. The WGO’s task will be supported by the development of educational and training materials, around the world, in collaboration with WGO Mem-ber Societies and by the concurrent development and publication of the WGO Cascades Guidelines on the Management of different conditions where our diet may play a role.
