Intestinal Inflammation Testing
Histamine, an organic compound, is involved in many types of allergic and inflammatory processes and helps regulate gut function. Diamine Oxidase (DAO) is the body’s primary enzyme for breaking down histamine and a natural defense against histamine excess.
Histamine excess may be a result of its release from storage in the body, insufficient breakdown due to a DAO deficiency, or due to the intake of foods rich in histamine-creating substances, such as alcohol, chocolate, pickled foods, as well as certain fish and seafood. Testing histamine and DAO levels provides important information that food sensitivity tests alone may not reveal.
How it Works
Before your appointment, you will be provided with a test kit and required to collect a small sample of your own blood (easy and painless). The test kit is sent to the lab and once the results are received, we will review them during a 60-minute consultation.
