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

Topics discussed in last night's Women's Conference Call

In last night’s conference calls we began discussing how BO affects our personal relationships with our significant other. In our discussion, we noted that body odor doesn’t seem to stop some people from having a very active sexual life, and in some cases, with multiple partners resulting in infidelity issues, while others believe that their odor prevents them from establishing even one relationship. After much discussion, there seems to be the consensus that what really determines whether or not a sufferer will be in a relationship is how each individual sufferer deals with his or her own BO condition at an emotional level, along with all the same factors affecting non-sufferers, including personality types and social opportunities.

We also discussed the various remedies that have worked and not worked for bromhidrosis and hyperhidrosis including body odor cleanser alternatives, particularly around the groin area. Thai crystals (for external groin area – not vaginally), feminine washes, and corn starch were considered effective by those who have tried them, while Dial antibacterial soap seemed to be too drying. Some wondered if long term usage of this soap may be adversely affecting the healthy vaginal microbial balance.

We were most impressed with Dr. Richard Lord’s new way of looking at the quantification of intestinal microbial global composition using a stool testing method involving the DNA analysis of fecal microbiota. We noted how much more advantageous his method is compared to the old techniques of testing microflora using stool cultures. The Polylmerase Chain Reactions (PCR) approach provides a unique bacterial identification result that could then help a clinician restore the proper microflora balance in the gut. This much more accurate testing method determines whether a person has dysbiosis, which Dr. Lord defines as an overgrowth or lack of diversity of microflora. We were all very excited with the potential this new testing method which may provide us the opportunity to identify odor-producing bacteria, and thus help us manage and control our odor.
