  • Hypersensitivity to inulin (polyfructan) is a rare event; two cases of food allergy and some patients presenting with allergy and hypersensitivity after inulin infusion have been reported. An 11-year-old boy suffering from severe immunoglobulin (Ig)A nephropathy (IgAN) experienced both anaphylactic reaction and concomitant relapse of his nephropathy following inulin infusion, used for measuring glomerular filtration rate (GFR) 2 years after the appearance of his initial symptoms.
