Migraine, headaches and DAO deficency: causes and symptoms

Posted the 10 Jan. 2016 – Alimmenta, dietistas nutricionistas – Language: Spanish.

There are different types of headaches, chronic tension headaches and migraines, with different causes and symptoms. One of the existing types of migraine headaches is due to a shortage of the enzyme diamine oxidase or DAO.

The deficit in the DAO enzyme produces high levels of histamine in the body, triggering, among other problems, migraines and headaches.

Through alimentation and with a diet low in histamine we can get a natural remedy through a dietary treatment. New advances in nutrition help to reduce attacks of headache through a personalised diet and a Diamine Oxidase supplementation.
