Q) In a past column, you addressed the problem of allergies and scan dyes. I would like
to add some information in the hopes that it will help others avoid a problem.
I am allergic to shrimp. On my first trip to the hospital, I was asked if I were allergic
to any medications. I wasn't aware of any, but I did say I was allergic to shrimp.
I thought the nurse would say I shouldn't expect shrimp at the hospital and we would have
a chuckle about it, but instead she said that it was "significant."
When I asked why, she told me that it had the same chemical makeup as intravenous dye and
gave me a red bracelet and wrote down the allergy in red pen on my chart.
I think that anyone with any kind of allergy should make medical staff aware of it,
regardless of whether it is "significant" or not.
A) I agree that it is better to give too much information than not enough, especially in
regards to health and medical treatment.
