Has any one managed to get a D-Hit histamine intolerance test on the NHS ? Can anyone advise me on an NHS route for this issue please. Other aspects related to this have already been explored.

    I managed to get this for my son about 8 years ago. It took months to finally get the test. He was only months old when he developed allergies and they were pretty resistant to testing him, I was even told the test did not exist. We have to see a dietician first and then it was arranged for him to have a test for milk allergies. The firstly rubbed milk and his lips to see what the reaction would be. They soon got a reaction and straight away decided that they would carry out a blood test. Once we had the blood test back it showed he was intolerant to nuts, dairy and eggs. It was not easy to get but worth it in the end.

    I would ask for a referral to a dietician to start with and see where that goes.
