    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Wheat Allergy Only

I am following a gluten free diet and I feel much better, however I was told I am only wheat intolerant. I tired to only avoid wheat, but was too hard and went to gluten-free where you are sure it's wheat free. Anyway, I was at Sea World (Anhauser Busch park, however you spell it)) not too long ago and found out that Budweiser is all rice based, no wheat used in any of the beer. Is there anyone else who is just wheat intolerant and drinks wheat free beer? I know the celiac's want to punch me and I'm sorry, I know how hard it is, but I miss beer so much... and the super bowl is coming.

I have had small, miniscule amounts of beer and nothing happened, but still scared - I accidently ate something the other day and I paid for it for 2 1/2 days.

If you don't mind, what were your symptoms before you found that you are only wheat intolerant, and how was that determined. I'm beginning to think that I'm in the same category. I've been gluten-free for 7 months but don't have the genes for celiac disease even though I had some gastro symptoms (bloat, gas, constipation) which improved with gluten-free. That's what got me to this place. I also have mild anemia and osteo but neither improved at all after 6 months gluten-free, so I'm beginning to think that I'm also "only" wheat intolerant. Beer never seemed to bother me before, and most does have barley malt (i.e. gluten) even though the main grain may be rice.

Thanks.

Most beer definitely isn't gluten-free -- it generally has barley malt (as you mentioned above). I know this because my fiance is a homebrewer and we're in despair of my ever being able to taste his beer again (let alone the fact that we may need to ban his brewing supplies from any other kind of kitchen use)..

Hey, thanks all

George - my symptoms before were like you said, constipation (or the other - which is worse, I think) gas and heartburn mostly. I was told that I had a wheat allergy and should follow a gluten free diet. I tried the beer this weekend and nothing happened. I did get gas that night, but, not to be gross, there was also a lot of chili there. Nothing else happend so I may try it again (sans chili) next time there is some kind of event like that.

I also think I am going to experiment with a wheat free instead of gluten free and see what happens, not that there is THAT much difference, but there is beer. When I eat wheat now, I immediatly get itchy and sneezy (can't even stand in a bakery) and I just had a wheat free, possible gluten contaminated taco and so far, so good.
