How do you test for histamine intolerance? Have allergic rhinitis. Had nasal polyps

Age 54, weight 195, type 2 diabetic, menopause , - How do you test for histamine intolerance? Allergic rhinitis my whole life, recently had nasal polyps, allergic to aspirin, ibprofen, sulfa drugs and mizicorium (an anastethic) Allergist finds very little: slight allergy to cats, goose feathers, tomatoes, dust mites. Loratadine and air conditioning helps. Also saline and a lower histamine diet. Any advice would be helpful. I believe the histamine problem is in my family for 4 generations. Thanks.

you seem to be allergic to many thing also its severe..
i suggest you visit immunologist /allergy specialist and you have to under go a test called skin prick test..which will identify most of the allergens you are allergic to..once this is done then there is a treatment called immunotherapy. it is highly effective treatment.. you have to take it for arround 3-4yrs and your allergy will reduce by 80-90 percent. it is done for drugs too.
histamine is a substance produced by the body itself once you come in contact with the allergen.. which causes symptoms
immunotherapy is currently best treament and also very effective.
thank you
