bluelikejazz Posted June 13, 2012 Share Posted June 13, 2012 My Psychiatrist gave me the latest update written by a Queensland psychiatrist. He argues that there a problems with the quality of information about diet restrictions and as a whole the danger of tyramine containing foods has been overstated. Essentially, tyramine less than 20mg has no risk and for most people as long as a meal contains less than 50mg of tyramine hypertensive crisis is very unlikely. The PDF goes through categories of foods and the average amounts of tyramine in them and includes a reference list of 163 peer reviewed journal articles. Some things like aged cheese and fermented meat is definitely out, but others may be acceptable in very small amounts. This is NOT a replacement for advice from your Psychiatrist and/or Dietician. You may be sensitive to tyramine and there is a chance this guy is incorrect. Please speak to a health professional before following this advice.
