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.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water....

    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
