    Default Histamine and Vitamin E

    I posted a thread about how I have cleared up my rosacea by limiting my vitamin e in my diet. I had tried the low histamine diet over a year ago but without success. I have noticed several others here on the forum that have found success on the low histamine diet, so I ran a comparison of my vitamin e food restrictions with the low histamine diet food restrictions. There is a LOT of overlap in the two, so I would like to hear input from others who have tried the low histamine diet. I will try to notate here the vitamin e foods that are not on the histamine list that I am avoiding* as well as the histamine foods I can eat without side effects().

    I'm sorry the format might be confusing. I can't upload this as a table. All the information below was found on multiple sites online. I am aware that there is some conflict between sites on what is allowable on the low histamine diet, so I'd like to hear anecdotal comments from anyone who has followed the diet.
