Histamine intolerance is a toxic response by the body resulting from an imbalance between accumulated histamine and the capacity to break it down.
Histamine toxicity is associated with numerous symptoms that mimic an allergic reaction such as skin irritation, gastro-intestinal upset, respiratory distress, headaches, insomnia and anxiety.
We report the genes involved in the two main histamine degradation pathways – Diamine Oxidase (DAO) and ALDH2 in the digestive tract, and Histamine N-Methyltransferase (HNMT) and MAOB in the central nervous system and lungs.
