RE: [IPu] Insulin allergy and hives??



Vanessa,

I have had similar problems as you. I am presently going to Royal Prince
Alfred Allergy Clinic - they are very helpful.

You can email them to make an appointment email @ redacted
and 

this is their website.  http://www.cs.nsw.gov.au/rpa/Allergy/default.htm

There is heaps of helpful information and links regarding food additives
(which are also in insulin) and natural food chemicals.

To make an appointment there may be a long wait but it is worth it and you
only pay for the initial consultation and all followups are claimed through
medicare.
