  1. Hi Kimis...just saw your post! I have had chronic urticaria all my life and had been told by a doctor to avoid histamine containing foods. (The list is HUGE- easier said than done.) I had never heard of Histame supplement so I looked it up. It looks like it could be a really awesome thing! I was told that histamine intolerance was due to leaky gut...more histamine crosses into the bloodstream. I've never heard that it was due to (yet another) deficiency.
  2. I have always had symptoms of IBS. Diarrhea, bloating, etc. When I was 12 I began to get cold urticaria which is autoimmune. It also suggests that I have a leaky gut. After having our first child, I began to get dermagraphism and was told by a dermatologist to avoid foods high in histamine. I have worse cystic acne now at 29 than I did at 16 and it won't clear up. Over the past couple of years I've slowly gotten other odd symptoms. Frequent nausea, mild hairloss, dandruff. Most recently, I've had a hard time focusing and I feel "zoned out" most of the time. Fatigue has increased, but I have a hard time falling asleep at night. A year ago I had low platelets in my CBC, but was told by the lab that the low platelets were cancelled out by the high mpv. Sorry, not a pretty picture, huh? I am stumped! Thank you so much for your reply! Hopefully those wiser than I will have some good suggestions/ advice.
  3. Hi, new to the forums and looking for some direction before a "routine follow up appt to discuss my results on April 14". I started going to a new doctor that decided to investigate symptoms that I've had most of my life and she ordered a CBC w/ diff, complete GI panel, and IgG food sensitivity test. Among other odd things, my Total Intestinal SIgA (stool) was <1 mg/dL. I thought this was suggestive of a serum IgA deficiency as well (serum levels have not been tested), but I tested positive for Gliadin AB, SIgA (saliva)16. I thought that if a person was IgA deficient, then they shouldn't be able to test positive on a gluten intolerance test like that. Maybe I don't understand how the testing works??? I've done a lot of reading on IgA and can't find anything about this. Other things to note are low WBC, high ammonia, high alkaline phosphatase, vitamin D deficient. Family history of autoimmune disease, 1 kid w/ ADHD, 1 kid diagnosed with "toddler diarrhea". Never been diagnosed for celiac or gluten intolerance before...what other testing should I ask for? Thank you so much in advance!
