I was admitted into hospital on friday with a swollen face after dental treatment. It's not an allergy but a rare medical condition I have.

Whilst the consultant was checking me out, he just happened to mention that people who are allergic to fish, should not drink guiness as it contains fish oil!! Did anyone else know this? Just thought I would pass this on...may help someone someday.

Some vegetarians consider Guinness as unsuitable for a vegetarian diet, as the production process involves the use of isinglass, made from fish. It is used as a fining agent for settling out suspended matter in the vat.The isinglass is retained in the floor of the vat but it is possible that minute quantities might be carried over into the beer.

Still swollen but not as badly. Worse thing was that they couldn't find me a straw to drink tea through!! lol I always have a hospital bag packed so will have to pack some straws now too.

The consultant in A&E was so nice. They fussed over me and he did an interview with me on video that he is going to put on medical websites as my condition is so rare. I hardly looked my best though so no one will recognise me :oops:

See, this sort of thing is why I just can't take vegetarians seriously.

In 2004, I was admitted 13 times so I learnt to have a bag packed.

I also live alone and some admissions have been for a week, others for a couple of days so I make it easier for my neighbour to bring things in for me, by having a bag ready. As much as my neighbour and I get on, I'd rather she wasn't rooting through my knicker drawer! lol

Plus I don't end up forgetting things and have nice pyjamas/slippers to wear rather than the old but comfy ones I wear at home!! lol I have books packed in the bag too for those long stays.

Taurine is produced synthetically as a food/drink additive so it's not a problem for vegetarians. :thumbsup:
