What's this test for?

Histamine is a chemical best known for its role in triggering an allergic reaction. During this type of reaction, the source of histamine released is from cells known as mast cells.

Histamine intolerance (HIT) is also mediated by histamine but is caused by an inability of the body to metabolise histamine efficiently.  With HIT, the source of histamine is from food which is either high in histamine or capable of liberating histamine in the body.

Symptoms of a histamine intolerance can include:

  • Asthma
  • Digestive tract problems including diarrhoea and bloating
  • Dysmenorrhea (painful periods)
  • Eczema
  • Fatigue
  • Flushing (face and chest)
  • Headaches
  • Hypotension (low blood pressure)
  • Itchiness
  • Runny nose
  • Skin rashes
  • Swellings (mostly around the eyes and lips)
  • Symptoms resembling anxiety / panic attacks
  • Tachycardia
  • Weepy eyes
