Well I am no gluten expert, but I am a home brewer. German beer is often equaled to lager and that is a rather light beer when it comes to malt (always exceptions) compared to many ale types. This is actually a question of yeast in the end as the yeast is what divides ale and lager into two main categories of beer with many subcategories each.

So my guess is that your doctor said something which in itself isn't true but the result of the advice is still often right.
