Inhalers Have Soy in Them

Only because my dear partner is a pharmacist, did I find out that I was getting worse from the use of inhalers because they have soy in them. And I am allergic to soy!!

A good to know!

Wow. I'm not, but you'd think....

Lecithin?

Anyone allergic to corn should know that IV glucose is corn-derived, also. WTF?

Which inhalers? Albuterol? Specific brands?

Some have oleic acid in them, which may be the soy-derived ingredient.

As for glucose: If you're trying to exclude allergens, you're going to have a hard time doing it. Theoretically, someone can be allergic to anything, and while extraction processes should get rid of the proteins that generally elicit an allergic response, 100% is hard to do. So that pretty much rules out any natural source. That leaves you with trying to make it yourself. Which is stupid. It's doable, but a PITA. Why bother when plants are so much better at it? And corn is cheap.

ETA: The one I looked at was an albuterol formulation
