I don't believe that it would contain any gluten in an IV form, but possibly in a pill form. I know that magnesium citrate causes me IBS-like symptoms, so I wonder if calcium citrate could do the same?

How is the calcium citrate administered during the donation process? Orally? Injected?

Maybe you should get your serum calcium levels checked.
