Hi. I can help you today.

Who diagnosed the problem as a systemic allergic issue and started the steroid treatment?
I guess you are away from your computer. We can use the Q&A system to address your questions.
You asked who had prescribed the steroid injection and the benadryl? The endocrinologist agreed to the meds prescribed by the cardiac physician who did the catherization .
The subject is not knowingly allergic to iodine but is now wondering if he is. also had the iodine dye 2 weeks ago for a stress test so does iodine build up in the body and could his be the casue of the puffy swollen tissue all around the eyes?
No, his vision is fine. Actually, the catherization showed absolutely no blockage at all but the various meds etc used have created problems with his managment of the Type 2 diabetes becasue of having to discontinue the glucophage prior and for 3 days post the procedure.
