Report This Post (To report rule violations to admin) Amazing Lectures At The Gluten Summit in Related Issues & Disorders Posted November 13, 2013 I don't care how many papers someone has published or how long they have practiced medicine...beer is not allowed on the gluten-free diet...unless you want to stay sick. Yes, hearing Dr. Marsh talk about beer really shocked me. I had to replay what he said to be sure I heard it correctly. Dr. O'Bryan posted this in response on FB.... . https://www.facebook.com/thedr.com.english "Q: Dear Dr. O'Bryan, in his interview Dr. Marsh said it is ok for celiacs to drink English beer. Does that mean I can go ahead and order a beer? A: All Right Folks, I have to intervene now. Dr. Marsh is truly the 'Godfather of Celiac Diagnosis' but he would be the first to tell you he is not an expert in WHICH foods work and do not work on a GFD. I have to urge caution before breaking a GFD with gluten-containing beer. If someone wants to do this, it's early in the week, I'll talk about this in detail at the end of this Summit, but I can not have people thinking I am endorsing gluten-containing beer. The only way to do this would be to do a panel looking at multiple peptides of gluten, confirm that there are no elevated antibodies to any of the peptides of gluten (whether in wheat, rye or barley). If all are negative, then doing a beer challenge will tell you if it's ok for you. Read my paper on this topic of gluten challenges 'Do I have to Re-introduce Gluten in Order to have an Accurate Gluten Sensitivity Test Done?' Once again, NOT recommended to do, but if you are going to, this is the safest protocol. Take care of yourselves folks. Tom O'Bryan, DC, CCN, DACBN"
