Detect and prove histamine intolerance

We offer the following parameters:     

  •     Quantitative histamine determination
  •     Detection of histamine-forming microorganisms
  •     Determination of diaminooxidase (DAO) activity

Characteristic symptoms of a histamine intolerance are:

  • flushing,
  • nausea,
  • diarrhoea,
  • migraine headache,
  • heat sensation, and
  • dyspnoea.

The main difference between a histamine intolerance and a food allergy: in the case of a histamine intolerance, the strength of the symptoms depends on the amount of histamine added. Patients suffering from histamine intolerance should employ a histamine-poor diet.
