I think it stinks even more when you've done it to yourself! I usually buy the Target brand antacid tablets and have never had a problem. I went to Wal Mart the other day out and I wasnt sure about some of the ingredients in the WM brand antacids. I bought a BIG BOX of Rolaids Softchews.

For the last 3 days, I thought I had the flu: extreme fatigue, D, etc. When I woke up for the millionth time to go to the bathroom, it dawned on me. Did a quick search of this site, and the Rolaids have gluten! I just called the 800 number, and the issue is CC. I usually am not that sensitive, so it must be some huge CC :( Uggg!

So sorry. It is nice to know what caused the problem! Thanks for the advice to avoid those rolaids.

I've used the regular hard tablets for years with no problem. What exactly did the person at the 800 number say?

They said the regular Rolaids are gluten free. The Softchews are made on shared lines.

Wanted to clarify that. Your first post did mention that you got the soft chews but didn't make it clear that the regulars were gluten-free. I wonder what the soft chews would share a line with.

I have no idea, I didn't think to ask. This is the first time I've had a reaction like this from CC. Usually it's just a little heartburn, but man did I get hit this time! Iguess it's true that you react more as more time goes by. Prediagnosis, I always had C, never D. It's finally stopped, thank goodness. I thought I was going to have to live in the bathroom :blink:

Don't beat yourself up too much. Your body is already doing enough of that on its own. Feel better.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
