MoonDragon's Nutrition Information: Diets
TYRAMINE-RESTRICTED DIET




PURPOSE


This diet is intended for use by patients who are taking monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors. It's purpose is to prevent a hypertensive crisis.




DESCRIPTION


This diet avoids the use of foods which contain large amounts of tyramine and other pressor amines. Failure to comply with dietary restrictions may result in symptoms such as headaches, nausea, tachycardia or bradycardia. Tyramine is present in many common foods. In the body, tyramine's pharmalogical action is to raise the blood pressure; however, enzymes, present in many body tissues neutralize this action. Drugs that prevent this neutralizing process, such as MAO inhibitors, allow the tyramine to re-enter the blood. As a result blood vessels are constricted causing the blood pressure to elevate.






BASIC INFORMATION


  • The tyramine content varies from product to product and even between samples of the same product. The portion of cheese closer to the rind has a much higher tyramine content than the cheese portion furthest away. Consumption of 6 mg of tyramine may produce some degree of hypertension while 10 to 25 mg can lead to a more severe crisis. The amount a person eats will determine the total dose of tyramine consumed, e.g., as little as 1 ounce of cheddar cheese yielding 15 to 45 mg could cause a moderate to severe hypertensive action.

  • Use care when eating out: Choose plainer dishes rather than casseroles or dishes with sauces.

  • Caffeine, a weak pressor agent, in excessive amounts could possibly produce symptoms unrelated to tyramine content.

  • Patients have been known to eat tyramine-containing foods on occasion without adverse effect, but there is no guarantee that the same food will not produce a severe reaction in the future.





  • NUTRITIONAL ADEQUACY


    This diet should be adequate in all nutrients.
