I am afraid to take my epipen.

In the Epinen, there is an additive called Sulfites, and i am allergic to the product. In my case, should i take the chance to inject if I really have to? I am very careful on what I eat, I'm very limited in my choices of food, so shouldn't i still be careful in this case also?

Anybody have low stomach acid?

I was told by a Kinesiologist during the Nutrition Response Testing, that I was allergic to my own stomach acid. Would like any help anybody can give. Everything I eat, makes me sick. I have heartburn almost everyday and I get acid reflux almost everyday. I'm severly lactose intolerant and most of the time, I have no clue what I ate, that made me so sick.

Storaging adrenaline pens - specialist medical holder

Hi

I just wanted to ask how do you store your adrenaline pens? Do you keep them in a special case?

I’m currently keeping my two Emerade pens in a thin pencil case. But in its original case and packaging. I’m not sure if it should be in a special case or not.

As long as it’s in its original case it should be good. Keep away from heat and cold.
