Just recently I have undergone two lots of allergy testing on All Insulin's. The results of the testing have found that i am allergic to all Insulin's.
Although I'm allergic, I have been told to continue to inject Apidra
3 times per day, but each injection feels like you are being stung by a load of wasps, I also have extreme itchiness and have to take a number of tablets to try to control that. They have also now issued me with two Epipens in case i have an emergency allergic reaction which does not fill me with the greatest of confidence.
I have just been told about a new drug called Dapagliflozin, which i am told will lower my blood sugars, as the sugars would be released in my urine, however they have warned me of the side affects of Thrush and other urinary infections, so I don't know. (Is anyone on this tablet)?
They say its very rare to be allergic to all insulin, but there must be other people experiencing the same problems?
If so, please get in touch, i would very much like to hear from you.
Allergy to all animal, human, analogue, beef and pork insulin's
