Important advice on medical information
This website is aimed at offering people useful information on histamine intolerance. The symptoms, which may occur due to an imbalance between histamine and histamine breakdown, however, are often rather unspecific and may be due to a range of other causes. That is why you should never use this website alone as basis for diagnosis, treatment or other medical decisions. We recommend you visit your doctor if you suspect that you are affected by HIT. Unfortunately, doctors are in our experience often unable to reliably recognise and diagnose histamine intolerance. Still, we deem it advisable to consult a physician so that other potentially harmful causes may be excluded.
