Q
Hello, do you offer medical support to people suffering with Histamine intolerance?

I have amended my diet but wonder if DAO supplements would help

A
Histamine intolerance is difficult to diagnose because there are no truly accurate diagnostic tests. A low Histamine diet will help sufferers. Diamine Oxidase (DAO) supplements which apparently help metabolise excess histamine  aren't readily available in South Africa. There is a product called Daosin available online. However its beneficial effects haven't been proven in enough clinical trials to recommend it.
