MeBO-Biolab gut dysbiosis study : tester 5 organic acid result back

Tester 5 was our 'thorough' tester, who did a greater number of tests than the standard MeBO-Biolab gut dysbiosis study, in the hope of shining some more light on the problem of systemic body odors. Her full list of results can be seen in a previous post.

It took longer than anticipated to get her organic acid test result back, but it seems to show no obvious issues. The organic acid test chosen was not as thorough as we would have liked, but factors such as cost and accessibility played a big part. Our ideal starting point for testing would be a urine test looking for 'malodorous volatile organic compounds', but we have not found a source for this test. Also a DNA test of all the xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes (including FMO3) would seem appropriate, but this would be quite expensive.

The test included 3-hydroxy-isovaleric acid, which can be an indicator for biotin deficiency and has been reported as being high in systemic body odor cases anecdotally.

Anyone wishing to participate in the MeBO-Biolab gut dysbiosis study can do so by filling out the questionaire. It would cost you £170 to do all 5 tests. The tests chosen were to look at certain gut dysbiosis markers, as well as Vitamin B2 levels (B2 is a cofactor in proper FMO3 function). The tests should be seen as a starting point in looking for answers to systemic body odors. Of particular interest is the 'ethanol' test, which is regarded as a test of yeast gut overgrowth. So far, quite a few of our testers have been positive for this.
