Gut Inflammation/ Histamine<


This test measure the levels of Histamine and DAO and the ratio between the two. This can provide important information about gut status, since Histamine plays in our body’s inflammatory processes

  • Easy to use: At home test
  • Collection Method:Dried Blood Spot
  • Measures:Histamine, DAO


Histamine is an amine that is produced as part of a local immune response to cause inflammation. It also performs several important functions in the bowel and acts as a neurotransmitter or chemical messenger that carries signals from one nerve to another.

If you have a food allergy, histamines are in on that response process, too. When you accidentally eat or drink something you shouldn't, they'll work in your gut to trigger your allergic reaction. Some foods are also naturally high in histamines.


Histamine intolerance means that you have a high level of histamine in your body. It can happen if your body cannot break down histamine. Too much Histamine in our system may be a result of its release from storage in the body, as part of our inflammatory and allergic processes. It may also be due to the intake of foods rich in histamine-creating substances . But it may also be due to its insufficient breakdown by the body’s primary enzyme responsible for this action, DAO, which is found primarily in our gut. Although DAO activity does not depend on itself alone, measuring its levels plays an important part in understanding the phenomenon of histamine excess.

Histamine intolerance is more common in people with underlying digestive issues. Conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, IBS, and SIBO increase the risk of histamine intolerance.


The Histamine:DAO Ratio is helpful in highlighting the possible imbalances in histamine and DAO levels. When the ratio between the two is high it suggests that there is a relatively high level of free histamine in the system, and/or there is an insufficient amount of DAO enzyme available for histamine degradation. When the ratio is low it suggests that the amount of free histamine is relatively low, and/or there is sufficient DAO enzyme available to degrade the histamine that is present.
