Customer Question
What are the symptoms...

What are the symptoms of an allergy to insulin? I have a blush on my legs and bumps.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

I have a red blush on my legs and bumps. It seems to coincide with high blood sugar. I have an insulin pump. I wonder if this is a symptom of an allergy to insulin. It is worse when I give myself a bolus.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I do have swollen feet.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
