Not cytology. Histology… I work with tissue. We don’t use acetone. We use xylene though but most labs have gone away from it because it has long term effects from constant exposure. They use things like americlear or something like that.
I went to school for histology. I can’t work right now but I volunteer in Chicago occasionally for a mast cell scientist.
From top to bottom, mast cell through the microscope, skull, microscope and tissue staining rack.

Have you eliminated any foods or tried an elimination diet. I have these issues too and have gone gluten free and have actually not needed acid medication since going gluten free. I also stay away from high histamine foods because histamine is used to make acid in the stomach so reducing foods that are high in histamine helps. There are several websites with low histamine diets that are fairly good. The 7 deadly sins as a mastocytosis GI doc says are tomatoes, beef, pork, wheat, chocolate, onions, orange juice. Also egg whites are really high.March 6, 2013 at 9:39 pm in reply to: any connection between borderline personality disorder and MASS cell #3534
Also dysautonomia can cause increase and decrease in neurocrines because the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system are not working properly. It can trigger anxiety without a reason. One of the chemicals released is histamine which comes from mast cells. Add adrenaline (flight/fight) and you have anxiety and can appear to be agitated or have the appearance of ADHD or autism or any other mental health disorder.March 6, 2013 at 9:35 pm in reply to: any connection between borderline personality disorder and MASS cell #3533
Mast cells are being studied in the brain. dr. theoharides has over 100 articles on this topic. There is thought that foods can trigger mast cells in the brain which is why the gluten free casein free diet works for some kids. Also mast cells cause swelling and inflammation which can cause trouble in the brain if they degranulate. Dr. Theoharides also studies the effects of flavonoids in helping with autism and ADHD. I believe there is a link. I have MCAS and EDS and also was diagnosed with Aspergers but I think I do not have Aspergers just some traits that may be caused by my disease.
