    @Timaca I got there w/ your blog address in signature; the one in your message didn't go anywhere.

    Here's to the histamine journey:cocktail:. BTW, I had remarkable results in my histamine response when I started FMN form of B2. Possibly especially good for MAO snps. I wrote about it, in my signature.

    DAO is copper dependent ...maybe you are lacking in copper?

    The thing I find about trips--even those that are very stressful--is that over time, the memories that remain are the good ones. You know, the sites, the companionship of family and friends, the freedom of being outside what can sometimes feel like the trap of home and a limited life. Of course, it's always a relief to be back home, snug in your own bed!

    @ahmo sorry if you have explained this before but how does FMN affect histamine and MCAS? Is it a certain brand or amount that you take? Do you take it prior to meals with other pre-food meds?

    @aquariusgirl I take Daosin prior to every meal but did not know of the link to copper. Can you explain this more? Would someone with severe MCAS need more or need less copper? My doctor has never even mentioned copper to me so am now very curious!

    Well DAO .the enzyme that degrades histamine is copper dependent..partially & I am guessing I am copper deficient cos a supplement called proper copper has given me a big boost recently....it's Mitosynergy. They have a website by that name.

    Copper.".bioavailable copper etc is big in certain circles right now.

    I don't know the mechanism. it was suggested as an important co-factor for MAO, and as I reported in my blog, it's essentially eliminated my need for ongoing antihistamine and mast cell stabilizers, including Neuroprotek. I had no expectations for what I'd experience when I began it. It's significantly reduced my supps bill, as also my antioxidant needs decreased.

    @aquarius girl Sorry for my confusion and I need to google all this stuff! Do you have MCAS and taking copper helps you or am I totally misunderstanding?

    When you say copper degrades histamine is that the same as degranulates (meaning a bad thing) or gets rid of it (meaning a good thing?).

    @ahmo So you take FMN and this alone eliminated all antihistamines and mast cell stabilizers? I need to google this too!

    I cannot eliminate anything now but trying to find things that may strengthen what I am already doing (but not make me worse!) I know it's all a crapshoot with MCAS and no two people are alike in what helps or in what they react to but trying to gather info to research further.

    You'll find a few references in my blog post, there's been a bit in some threads, possibly B2 I Love you. But I just decided to give it a try w/o evidence, just suggestions.

    Some people can't break down the co-factors. I am one of them and need to take a sublingual, co-enzymated type of B2 where the "job has already been done."

    @ahmo, @Sushi Wow, thanks for all the info! I just got back from an appt and will read it later. I will ask my Dr about FMN, copper, and some other potential MCAS supplements but was not able to ask today b/c so much other stuff to cover and appt was two hours delayed.

    @Timaca I am sorry I took your thread off track and hoping the FMN info will be helpful for you, too!
