Headache, tachycardia, abdominal pain, flatulence, rash and itching may be signs of histamine intolerance.
Histamine is responsible for the body’s defense against unwanted substances. An intolerance is a trigger for allergies and often occurs in people with a disturbed intestinal barrier.
Histamine is a neurotransmitter and is degraded by the enzyme diamine oxidase (DAO). If the intestine is weakened or ill, the production of diamine oxidase may be too low.
Histamine Intolerance slef test is a send-in sampling kit for testing suspected histamine intolerance.
The test is used to determine the concentration in human capillary blood of diamine oxidase (DAO), the enzyme that breaks down histamine. The process is pain-free and can be done easily from home. The sample is analysed in vitro in the specialised diagnostics laboratory.
