Whoa! I guess I read too much into the name Omission!

I'm sure my mistake is common & I don't want to wantonly assign nefarious motives. (Only said I didn't want to, not that I wouldn't wonder)

Omission? They didn't omit any more gluteney beer ingredients than budweiser does. It's another barley malt beer claiming to be deglutened by process.

Doesn't the main gluten ppm test do poorly w/ hordein, the barley gluten analog to gliaden? Or maybe there's a newer test.

I was psyched that there was another oregon gluten-free beer, but w/ forum members comments on the spanish "deglutened" barley malt beer, I think I'll wait.

I agree with Tom, I think,.  I am a little cautious about it.  But it's been a while now.  So, has anyone tried the Omission beer?  Does anyone think it is ok or anyone have any issues with it?   I don't remember seeing it anywhere in my area.  I am not sure I'd try it if I found it tho.

I don't drink beer, but I have super, super annoyed by waitstaff (who are trying to be helpful)  in restaurants offering me one of these fake "gluten free" beers, which are still made from gluten bearing ingredients, because they are ASSUMING that anyone with a gluten free diet requirement, who just asked for the gluten free menu and repeated that they need the entire order to be gluten free, can then just STILL have something made from gluten, aka malted barley, as long as it doesn't have too much of it, and has been processed.  It is the beer equivalent of picking the croutons off the salads...... :angry:  and it's not helpful to the overall quest to get safe food when eating out.  It is just something ELSE I have to memorize to avoid.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
