FAQ

What is tested in the histamine test?
The kiweno histamine test tests the degradability of histamine by the enzyme diamine oxidase (DAO). The enzyme diamine oxidase (DAO) breaks down histamine in the body. However, if the organism does not have enough of the enzyme at its disposal, histamine can only be broken down insufficiently and an excess of histamine can develop, which often leads to unpleasant symptoms. A further test procedure is the stool sample for histamine, which can be carried out by a trusted doctor. This can be used to determine how much histamine is actually present in the bowel. In case of increased values, histamine-related complaints may occur despite an additional histamine degradation by the DAO.
How do I know if I should perform a histamine test?
Do you suffer from skin rashes, itching, swollen eyelids or legs, heavy sneezing fits or diarrhoea after some foods? These could be indications of a histamine intolerance. Especially hard cheese (such as Parmesan), ketchup, tomatoes, sauerkraut, spinach, legumes or wine are known for their high histamine content and trigger histamine-related symptoms.
What are the services of the kiweno histamine test?
With your histamine test you get:
  • A test kit for easy testing from home
  • A pre-franked return envelope for easy return of your blood sample
  • The analysis of the blood sample by our laboratory
  • Access to your personal kiweno online profile where you can get your test results, helpful information about your intolerances and intolerances and many more health and nutrition tips from our experts.
How can the results of my histamine test be influenced?
The DAO level measured by the histamine test can be influenced by the following factors: “DAO preparations”, such as DAOsin excessive alcohol and nicotine consumption short-term medication (N-acetylcysteine, ambroxol, aminophylline, amitriptyline, chloroquine, clavulanic acid, isoniazid, metamizole, metoclopramide, propafenone, verapamil, etc.). Some of these drugs do not specifically affect DAO, but only histamine release. In general, the influence of drugs on DAO is not 100% guaranteed. Permanent medication is not meant by this because of essential regular intake, as it has a “permanent” influence. Since the main site of formation of diamine oxidase is the intestine, all diseases or influences on the gastrointestinal tract also have an effect on the formation of the enzyme. Certain foods are suspected to influence DAO levels – including cocoa, green and black tea and energy drinks. The supply of vitamin B6, zinc and vitamin C also has an influence on the DAO level, as DAO cannot be sufficiently formed in the event of a deficiency.
Is it possible that I get different results from histamine intolerance tests of other providers?
The short answer is: Yes, it is possible. Why? With our histamine test we measure the degradability of histamine in dry blood via the enzyme diamine oxidase. Our test provides an indication of a possible reduced main degradation in the intestine via the DAO, although there are also other degradation pathways of histamine (via the histamine N-methyltransferase). Therefore, our results speak of a possible histamine intolerance. The test result must always be seen in connection with possible symptoms. The DAO level measured by the histamine test can be influenced by the following factors: “DAO inhibitors”, such as DAOsin Alcohol nicotine and medication (N-acetylcysteine, ambroxol, aminophylline, amitriptyline, chloroquine, clavulanic acid, isoniazid, metamizole, metoclopramide, propafenone, verapamil and others). Some of these drugs do not specifically affect DAO, but only histamine release. In general, the influence of drugs on DAO is not 100% guaranteed. Certain foods are also suspected of influencing DAO levels – including cocoa, green and black tea and energy drinks. The supply of vitamin B6, zinc and vitamin C also has an influence on DAO levels, as DAO cannot be produced sufficiently in the event of a deficiency.
