Mastocytosis & Mast Cell Disorders

Who uses quercetin? How much do you take? What does it help? Diet corrects many problems for me but I still have major reactions to chemical smells. I try to avoid but they are everywhere! Would it help if I took this regularly like I take pepcid zyrtec and hydroxyzine to prevent problems? Ty

My daughter takes 1500 mg per day. It helps her skin pain. She doesn't have a problem with chemical smells, so I can't say if it would help with that.

I don’t tolerate it but some do benefit from it.

I used to but it effects estrogen I read in a sci article and so I rarely take it now. Too bad as it is great and helped mast cell issues and allergies.

Does it increase estrogen levels?

Answered Jan 14, 2018    reply

That is what I recall. The study showed similarities to soy I think. I sent it to my Dr and he told me not to take it.

Wow really? I'm going to have to read more about this. Thanks for mentioning it.

Answered Jan 8, 2018    reply

I've seen this mention in that it could slightly raise it, but then found subsequent studies that said no, it didn't effect estrogen.

Very beneficial for me in stability. I take 1000mg per day.

So higher estrogen could lead to cancer?

Answered Jan 8, 2018    reply

If you have too much estrogen and not enough progesterone, it can cause changes in the uterine lining which can lead to cancer. That happened to me ( not from quercetin). I was actually lucky I had a polyp that caused a hemorrhage, because I had to have an ultrasound for that, and it showed an abnormally thick endometrial lining, so they did a biopsy which showed complex hyperplasia...basically precancerous cells. I had to take Provera for several months and then have a d&c. My doctor said if I hadn't had the bleeding episode, the hyperplasia probably wouldn't have been found until it had become cancer and spread.

I am highly sensitive to smells too and would love to know if it helps with that specifically.

Answered Jan 8, 2018    reply

Me too but along with 500mg vitamin C to increase absorption of the quercetin.

Do any of you take the Quercetin with Cromolyn for added benefit?
