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

Tester 8 results : MeBO-Biolab gut dysbiosis study

Tester 8
Mid 20's
Odor problem:
Systemic body odor. strong sudden sulphur odor, no physical feeling of having passed wind, no other physical sensation, just a sudden smell. Often experienced in social situations, around alot of people, situations where I am nervous/anxious/ had a lack of sleep/ situations where adrenalin is involved... For 3.5 years
Gut problems
Bloating, Constipation
Other problems
IBS, Eczema, Peanut Allergy
Trimethylaminurianot tested

Results :
Tester 8
Gut FermentationHigh Ethanol 120 (under 22 is normal. Indicates small intestine yeast overgrowth.)

mebo body odor study vit B2 tester 8

The results of tester 8 in the MeBO-Biolab gut-dysbiosis study have been returned (apart from the gut permeability test result), and once again it shows a fairly high level of ethanol (in relative terms), indicating yeast fermentation in the small intestine. Indicans was also positive, which indicates alteration of tryptophan by gut bacteria, and is a crude and inexpensive test, and can imply a putrefaction action by gut bacteria (A doctor's explanation of the indican urine test). This is the 3rd positive for indicans in our study. Tester 8 is our 3rd tester since vitamin B2 was added to the survey, and once again had a deficiency as the previous 2 had. D-lactate was normal again, with only tester 2 being abnormal (possibly since they were taking probiotics at the time).

Again, we cannot say these results prove anything, and are just a limited snapshot of how testing can possibly show best what is going on in people with systemic body odor or halitosis complaints. However, hopefully they are a foundation to work on, in trying to define systemic body odor/halitosis disorders.

Anyone wishing to do the study can fill out the MeBO-Biolab body odor/halitosis gut dysbiosis survey and the process will begin. Unfortunately those overseas from the UK seemingly cannot do the vitamin B2 or d-lactate test, since the sample will likely be spoilt in transit. Testers need to pay for their own tests.

The results of tester 9 are also back and will be posted soon next week, along with the updated table of all results.
