Remedy Description


"Ask the Doctor", Dr. Peter Gott, Newspaper Columnist, Feb 10, 2010


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.
