AAA - histamine


ASK THE EXPERT - A range of distressing symptoms in various organ systems such as the digestive tract, skin, respiratory tract, and the nervous system, similar to those experienced with allergy, may actually be due to histamine excess, or histamine intolerance, a condition recognised and understood by few doctors. Dr Joneja answered your questions on Monday 30 April explaining how to deal with it through diet and other treatments. 

The clinic is now closed but you can view the questions and answers here.

For 40 years national charity Action Against Allergy has given personal advice and support to sufferers across the whole spectrum of allergic illness and campaigned for better NHS resources to provide adequate treatment. Visit the Action Against Allergy website to find out more.
