Hi guys,

Awhile back I posted about my histamine intolerance becoming severe after starting methylation protocols (although I benefit from them in other ways).

Do you know if this MAO A R297R rs6323 TT +/+ status is likely what's causing histamine intolerance?

Thanks so much!

MAOA is involved in breaking down histamine so to some degree yes.

That SNP doesn't do anything. See here and here for posts on MAO A SNPs.
