Tums Gluten Free?
0

18 posts in this topic

I have seen several posts saying they take Tums, but I have not seen them listed as gluten free on any of the sites. Are they and if not are Rolaids? What does anyone take for that gassy feeling after eating?

My understanding is that Tums are NOT gluten free.

I've heard on this forum that tums are gluten-free, but I just read on clan thompson's celiac website that they are not and that rolaids are? Is this correct?

I have Clan Thompsans list as well and Tums are not gluten-free. I also have a list that was updated 4/04 and it says Tums are NOT gluten-free. I have been taking them all along up until a few days ago when I found out they are not gluten-free.

Phazyme anti gas softgels are gluten-free.

Rolaids multi symptom are gluten-free too.

They are both gluten-free according to the 2 lists I have.

Can you find phyzyme at a local store? Are regular rolaids gluten-free too?

As is said above, Tums are NOT gluten-free, but Gaviscon are, in all their forms and flavors.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, how frustrating sometimes to figure these things out! I just went out and bought multi symptom rolaids and chucked the tums out just in case.

I am pretty sure that I had a gluten accident this weekend at a restaurant and have had horrible indigestion pain ever since Sunday. I remember reading somewhere on this board that Tums was not gluten-free. Does anyone know what type of medicine I can take for this? The pain is pretty bad. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Sorry to hear that. I use aloe vera juice - though I'm willing to bet you don't have that hanging around. You can find it at a healthfood shop or vitamins shop (not very tasty though). I use the Market America brand which is strawberry-kiwi and very yummy and doesn't cost any more either.

Also, I like to make some ginger tea. It really helps settle the stomach/intestines, and the more you drink (not just tea, but water in general) the quicker you will flush out the bad stuff.

Hope you are feeling better,

donna

I actually have a bottle of Tums 750s in my hand right now, and there is a tab at the bottom of the back label which clearly states "Gluten Free".

How many do suffer from heartburn since the diagnosis of gluten sensitivity? I have been gluten free for 2 and half weeks and the heartburn is terrible. Would love some feedback on the best thing to take for it. Thanks so much in advance.

This is sort of an old thread, but I keep Tums in my house. I suffer from very occasional heartburn but when it comes it is awful and I eat the things like candy. While I have never picked up a bottle (including smoothie flavor) that isn't marked gluten free. That said, there is a statement on their website about it.

Although we do not use gluten as filler in TUMS, there may be trace amounts of gluten in TUMS Smoothies flavor via ingredients that are supplied by outside vendors. Other products of TUMS do not contain gluten. Review the “inactive ingredients” section on the bottle label to see if the variety you have selected contains gluten.

What works well for me for heartburn is Pepto Bismal liquid. It usually works in one dose.

    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
    • Hey guys, the last year and a month of transitioning to totally gluten free was hard, but I now seem to be healthy. The first six months I got horrible cramps that would suddenly come and hit hard, but I really havent seen any of those since about February-March. One thing that I wouldnt say has gotten better is my psyche. I was always sort of an anxious person (hard not to be when you dont feel well yet you have "IBS" and you're just "nervous", which all of you probably know), but I am borderline hermit now. I finally went to the doctor today and was prescribed prozac, so hopefully that helps, but I was just wondering about you guys? Thanks  
    • Thank-you, thank-you! I am so relieved to have input from others who have experience with celiac disease. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the school cafeteria. I'll ask our very nice and experienced Cafe Mgr for realistic info and details. My primary concern is the safety of my daughter and packing a lunch will not be that big a deal, even though she prefers the fresh prep instead of lunchbox offerings. Sigh. It sounds as if the 504 is unquestionably the preference over the IHCP, since the 504 is binding and follows the student through his/her academic career. I have a meeting with the admin team on Tuesday. Until then, I'm reading lots so i can be informed. And, dkader, I sent you a private message via the blog's feature. I'd certainly love to read the 504 info you have squirreled away. Thank-you so much!
