Histamine intolerance occurs when there is a build-up of histamine in the body. Drugs, medical conditions, the environment, nutritional deficiencies, and diet can lead to histamine intolerance.

What are the symptoms?

The symptoms of histamine intolerance vary but tend to mimic those of other allergic reactions.

Common symptoms include:

  • diarrhea
  • chronic headache
  • flushing, especially of the head and chest
  • irritable bowel syndrome or IBS
  • congested, runny, or itchy nose
  • red, itchy, or watery eyes
  • sneezing
  • shortness of breath
  • hives or red, raised, itchy, burning bumps
  • very itchy skin
  • unexplained anxiety
  • stomach cramps or pain
  • chronic constipation
  • nausea and vomiting
  • gas or bloating
  • unexplained exhaustion
  • dizziness
  • very dry, patchy, or scaly skin (eczema)
  • irregular or increased heart rate
  • severe menstrual pain

Factors that lead to histamine intolerance cause the following:

  • An increase in how much histamine a person's digestion releases.
  • A decrease in the effectiveness or abundance of diamine oxidase, or DAO, the primary enzyme that breaks down ingested histamine.
  • A decrease in the effectiveness or abundance of histamine-N-methyltransferase, or HNMT, an enzyme that helps break down histamine within cells.

Histamine intolerance is fairly rare affecting a small percentage of the population and specifically people with metabolic syndrome. People often mistake it for other conditions, such as food allergies and gastrointestinal diseases which often have similar effects.

What are the causes?

Medications may affect enzymes that break down histamine.

Many foods and drinks contain histamine. Usually, the enzyme DAO, and to a lesser extent HNMT, breaks down ingested histamine, preventing it from being absorbed in the gut and entering the bloodstream. Some factors can, however, interfere with how DAO and HMNT work, or how much of these enzymes are present in the gut.

Common factors that interfere with DAO and HMNT levels include many prescription drugs, for example:

  • airway medications, such as theophylline
  • heart medications
  • antibiotics
  • antidepressants
  • antipsychotics
  • diuretics
  • muscle relaxants
  • pain medications
  • gastrointestinal medicines
  • nausea and gastroesophageal reflux disease, GERD
  • malaria drugs
  • tuberculosis medications

The list also includes over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) and painkillers, such as:

  • acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin)
  • indomethacin (Indocin)
  • diclofenac (Voltaren)
  • naproxen

Other influencing factors include:

  • alcohol
  • intestinal conditions or injuries that compromise the gut lining and affect digestion
  • liver conditions
  • vitamin B-6, vitamin C, copper, or zinc deficiencies
  • extreme or chronic stress
  • low oxygen states
  • injury or trauma
  • temperature extremes

Some people are predisposed to developing histamine intolerance because of hypersensitivity to over the counter medications, for example, NSAIDs. When the body does not break down histamine from foods, and it leaks through the intestinal lining, it enters the bloodstream and can cause an immune response. A person's allergic response symptoms are likely to be more severe the more histamine they have accumulated in their bloodstream.
