California Hospitals/Health Systems Contacted

(Updated 2/18/2020)

I continue to read personal testimonies from members of our corn allergy support groups documenting that medical personnel continue to administer dextrose IV fluids to corn-allergic patients in direct violation of the contraindication warning on the package insert.  It is also apparent that too many medical professionals do not understand the critical difference between dextrose and corn-derived dextrose, citric acid and corn-derived citric acid, ascorbic acid and corn-derived ascorbic acid, etc.  Anything derived from corn can prove fatal to the anaphylactic corn-allergic patient.  The most heartbreaking testimonies are from parents of corn-allergic infants, many of whom have been diagnosed with "failure to thrive" due to the lack of corn-free infant formulas.  Hospitals have NO alternative safe sources of corn-free nutrition to feed to these struggling babies, and their pediatricians/dietitians cannot offer any assistance to parents of corn-allergic infants. 

In summary, the corn allergy population can consume very few processed foods; and no commercially-processed non-organic meat, poultry, seafood, produce, or fruit due to government-authorized corn-derived acid washes.  Many corn-allergic patients must have their medications compounded to exclude corn; and since tap water may contain corn due to corn-derived purification chemicals, many are forced to purchase other sources of corn-free water.  In addition, it is difficult trying to find a water filtration system that is not manufactured with corn-derived components.

Therefore, the primary message I am sharing with these hospitals/health systems is that it will now be their responsibility to provide corn-free foods, fluids, and medications (compounded to exclude corn-derived ingredients) to corn-allergic patients.  Otherwise, it could be interpreted that hospitals are discriminating against the corn allergy community.

After one of the state hospital associations informed me that it was not their responsibility to contact their member hospitals with our corn allergy awareness message/documentation, and instructed me to contact every hospital within the United States; I have been contacting hospitals/health systems in each state on behalf of the corn-allergic patients.
