Is it possible that Zantac, being a histamine blocker, could cause higher histamine production when coming off of it, resulting in development of allergies? For example consuming diet soda can result in insulin spikes in some cases, possibly leading to di

Is it possible that Zantac, being a histamine blocker, could cause higher histamine production when coming off of it, resulting in development of allergies? For example consuming diet soda can result in insulin spikes in some cases, possibly leading to di

Itch w/urine test negative for stds on many test, doc says possible allergy as it occurs only after drinking diet soda, is this possible?

If urethral discharge, consider nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), an STD usually caused by bacteria not detected with routine STD tests. If your diabetes is poorly controlled, maybe yeast (candida). Hard to imagine an allergic cause, or that it really is connected with diet soda. Keep working w/ your doctor. ...Read more
