ABC NIGHTLY NEWS ASK DR. BESSER YOUR HEALTH QUESTIONS… I DID MINE, DO YOURS!!!
Dear Dr. Besser,
I run a Facebook page and a web site under the name of Corn Freedom. Over the past year of my Facebook page I have gained knowledge that there are many many people allergic or sensitive to corn and corn derivatives. Our son suffers an extreme sensitivity to where eating, breathing or touching corn derived products will make him sick. I started my Facebook page simply looking for others who have the same thing, since I thought we were alone.
We are very much not alone. I have been hearing more and more concerns about Emergency Medical Situations. Glucose I.V. is derived from corn, most of my members who have had an ER situation or a surgery have been injected with this I.V. and have become very ill. Bloating, Hives, Fevers for weeks. Every medication that comes into our house is specially compounded using a Compounding Pharmacy to avoid corn and any derivatives.
With Corn not being on the TOP ALLERGEN list the doctors are not aware of how many of their “life saving” practice is going to kill or seriously sicken a corn sensitive patient.
Please help us figure out how to safely have an Emergency Medical Situation. The main issue is, Emergency’s are just that. We should have to waste those precious seconds fighting over what is safe to use. We should be holding our loved one’s hands and letting the doctors do their jobs.
Please write your questions and comments here!
