Perhaps you know this woman's work: https://healinghistamine.com/ Yasmina Ykelenstam has strategies. She DOES NOT recommend adopting a low histamine diet. https://healinghistamine.com/diagnosing-histamine-disorders/
In my case, low carb contributed to get me happily free of nearly all symptoms. But I had to go verrry low carb to get the effect. I am under the impression though, that I have only suppressed symptoms but not the pathomechanism itself, whatever that is.

Here it says:
How does this match with your experiences? Does anyone know what causes the worsening?
- For most, symptoms wax and wane, but many can experience a general worsening trend over time
She says it isn't that simple. Some foods can be tolerated and then should be. That eliminating all histamine foods can sometimes increase your sensitivity to them. I found this with salicylates. When I decreased eating them to virtually nil I reacted far more when I did eat some.I thought that she had a low histamine cookbook... no?? Why does she advise against a low histamine diet?
Good site. I agree with her wholeheartedly on there being issues with Glutamate. If you do a search on this forum and the blog site of Healthrising, you will find a lot of research that both Dejurgen and I have done in regard to glutamate and how that plays into our illnesses.Low carb per se isn't going to help. Being on a low histamine diet is certainly a good starting point. You can see a low histamine food guide here. https://mummyandchild.com/histamine-foods/
