Does anyone have any info on what Kina mentioned about Nancy Klimas, ME/CFS and mast cells?
I saw Dr. Rey in August, and she specifically said she doesn't find stool tests to be useful. She didn't bring up blood work for food sensitivities..........my personal opinion is that we're still in the infancy of that kind of testing.
I've seen the low histamine diet recommended for people with mast cell problems. And this diet allows gluten and dairy. I can't see those of us with common food intolerances from leaky gut responding to the low histamine diet.
