Histamine is a chemical that is found naturally in some foods. In addition it is also a chemical that is released as part of an allergic reaction. When released in this way it causes  itching, sneezing, wheezing and swelling type allergy symptoms.

An enzyme called diamine oxidase is responsible for breaking down any histamine that we absorb from a histamine-containing food. If this works well then when we eat a food which contains histamine it does not affect us. Some people have a low level of this enzyme so when they eat too many histamine-rich foods they may suffer ‘allergy-like’ symptoms such as headaches, rashes, itching, diarrhoea and vomiting or abdominal pain. This is called histamine intolerance. Some studies have also suggested links between histamine intolerance and urticaria, asthma, eczema and anxiety and panic attacks.

Histadelia

As well as being responsible for some of the symptoms of allergy Histamine is also a neurtransmitter  – a chemical messanger within the brain – so raised levels of histamine in the body can lead to some behavioural problems and mental health issues. For some people high levels of histamine are not due to a lack of the Diamine oxidase enzyme but to a lack of processing of the histamine – thought to be due to undermethylation.  There are receptors for histamine in the brain and  for some individuals, high levels of blood histamine (called histadelia) have psychological, behavioral, and cognitive symptoms.
