Intolerance to various foods, excluding bona fide coeliac disease and lactose intolerance, represents a growing cause of patient visits to allergy clinics.
Histamine intolerance is a long-known, multifaceted clinical condition triggered by histamine-rich foods and alcohol and/or by drugs that liberate histamine or block diamine oxidase (DAO), the main enzyme involved in the metabolism of ingested histamine. Histamine limitation diets impose complex, non-standardized restrictions that may severely impact the quality of life of patients.

Excessive accumulation of histamine in the body leads to miscellaneous symptoms mediated by its bond to corresponding receptors (H1-H4). Increased concentration of histamine in blood can occur in healthy individuals after ingestion of foods with high contents of histamine, leading to histamine intoxication.
The measurement of the functional activity of the enzyme DiaminoOxidasa consolidates its position as a key biomarker and after eight years since the beginning of the R&D project of DR Healthcare on the deficit of DAO as the principal cause of migraine and other associated symptoms, we are glad to see how it also consolidates at the clinical level. The Group Chiron Health has announced the implementation of units of Deficit of DAO in the entire network of hospitals that the group has in Spain.
Ginger, as a potent anti-inflammatory that is, has been used for thousands of years to treat migraine. Recent studies show that their use is safe.
Therefore, it would be interesting to use ginger as palliative treatment if you have a migraine and a low histamine diet supplemented with enzyme DAO as a preventive treatment.
