MEBO Metabolic Malodor Survey (international) for Dr Hazen click here
click to Read more/less

survey for ANYONE who identifies with METABOLIC MALODOR

begun : Oct20
end : no ending for now

Regular readers will know that Dr Stan Hazen et al at Cleveland Clinic are developing a TMA-blocker pill, as they proposed in a 2011 paper that TMAO is a factor in CVD. Recently Dr Hazen and colleagues contacted MEBO as they have always thought they could also help with TMAU. This survey is to give them an idea of the 'state of the community'. It is a "version 1". They may not even look (though they have access permission), but it could be useful to give them an overview of the community

MEBO had a zoom call with Dr Hazen and his team in October. Another zoom call is planned when they have time

This is a GOOGLE FORMS survey

UK Trimethylaminuria testing options update

Latest on testing for TMAU without a Dr in the UK :

It looks like another supplier may enable UK residents (or international, but USA testing is much cheaper), to do the urine test for around £160 + a £35 charge. We will keep you updated. The £35 is their 'brokers' charge (basically if you can't get access to the test direct as medichecks now allow, you need a 'broker' instead)

The Sheffield Childrens Hospital test lab who does the TMAU urine test normally charges around £124 (last years quoted price, which if done through the NHS presumably is paid for by your Drs surgery). If you can satisfy them that you are testing under a Drs approval, that sort of price should be possible. It's a case of getting some sort of referral note/request form from a Dr (perhaps they have some sort of requisition form). Basically you need a 'broker'.

The Sheffield hospital also does the FMO3 DNA test. Last known price was £280 for NHS patients (presumably the Drs surgery can pay for that) or £392 for private/international patients.

Hopefully with some investigation we will find the easiest way to enable doing this test for free or the cheapest price if direct testing is the preferred option. Any feedback/leads are welcome.
