Sounds like a thorough doctor, I am glad you found a good one to help. I have my next appointment at the start of November.

I was going to message to put an idea forth regarding the alcohol, though this new information makes alot of sense. I suppose in your circumstance could you try the alcohol dehydrogenase blocker or what was suggested in the article to improve your symptoms?
I must admit that most times I am skim reading information, it's hard to read and remember alot of the time so it's how I manage. Some times I wonder how I got through a science degree, haha. Hoping I can eventually have more good days than bad though!

I stumbled across an article that I interpreted to mean c.1330C>G gene can result in the incorrect conversion of a certain protein into histidine. As this is used in histamine synthesis I wondered if c.1330C>G would mean more histamine problems. Maybe far-fetched.

I hope that you can manage ALDH2 and improve your tolerance.

I found something suggesting biotin is important in utilising B12, it wasn't a journal article so I need to look into it more. I have normal B12 levels though this point interested me as doctors through the years keep testing me even when I say my levels are normal.

I think I will try the Meribin, it's even more expensive here as we don't stock in Australia. I have tried 5 different brands and different levels. I have an idea about what I think doesn't work but I wouldn't want to say as I mix dose/brand frequently. Currently trying Caruso's and Natrol.

I've done several food diaries, though admittedly it was always looking for food intolerance not histamine problems. Will keep it in mind for next Naturopath appointment.

Currently my grandfather, and either my mother or cousin are going to do DNA tests. We want to find out if the gene came from my mum or dad and if my grandmother (deceased) had it. Retrospectively grandmother having the gene would explain a lot. Hope that the familial data answers some questions in general as well. Will ofcourse share the information.

Kind regards
