I decided to try Heinekin after talking to unclebubba. I actually had two yesterday while watching football and playing some darts. It's nice to be able to have 1 or 2 beers. Makes me feel "normal".
I found beers were bothering me before I started the meds. I haven't tried any besides Heineken since, but the one or two I've had don't seem to bother me. I guess the real test will be after I get off the pred more. It could be masking symptoms.
I don't have a gluten free diet tho, but I have tried cutting it back (ie substituting beers and pasta for gluten free). Don't know if it helps, but for now at least I feel like I'm doing something.
