Just a quickie to let you know that I have now managed to get one lab to do both whole blood/urine histamine and DAO (diamine oxidase) levels which will make life easier for those tracking their histamine intolerance.
We have been using Biolab for some time now for the body levels of histamine and they have recently upgraded their methodology along new research lines apparently, consequently the price has gone up. Still, I would rather we had the most efficient tests with viable results than tests that don’t help, wouldn’t you? Actually, they went up months ago and I held them down for you, but needs must now as both have gone up.
They have also started offering the diamine oxidase test so, actually, when I priced both up, it wasn’t that far off my price would be using two different labs. So, I have decided to do both tests through Biolab now. If for some reason you still want your DAO tests done by BTS, our previous lab for this, that’s fine; just ask. I really want to stay with BTS but it is simply more practical to have one lab sending your test kits out and for you to have to send them back to one lab so practicality wins out. I have combined the two tests into a discounted Histamine Intolerance Test here for you to make life easier and that bit cheaper, too, so hope that helps.
For more info on histamine intolerance generally, do read the article I wrote here: Could It Be Histamine?
With body histamine testing, you can now do either blood or urine; both are just as viable and urine is easier, of course 🙂. DAO is still blood.
Hope that helps.
