    Niacin Allergic Reaction triggered shock in my friend
    TK1089 posted:
    Hello, as the title said my friend underwent a emergency room visit due to ingesting Niacin. I would like to get her a Niacin free diet plan as soon as possible as the doctors have not and she doesn't have a primary care. Can anyone help me? I'm really concerned for her health and I've tried the VA but they couldn't help me.
    Yitzzy responded:
    I don't have any information on this type of allergy. All I can recommend is that she read labels while at the grocery store to make sure her food doesn't contain it. I would do an internet search to make sure that there aren't any hidden sources of Niacin in food. good luck
