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

Mullhaven test lab in England closes

Unfortunately, Mullhaven laboratory in England has closed due to the economic climate and other exacerbating business reasons (especially a new tranche of bureacracy, the Care Quality Commission) . It was the easiest 'least expensive' way to test for the urine TMAU test in the UK. All tests in the UK are done at Sheffield Children's Hospital but normally one has to access the test via a 'professional healthcare worker' such as a Dr, which in effect can be a hindrance.

The only other 'direct' route in the UK we know of that we would suggest trying is via Emed. This should actually be cheaper than Mullhaven cost, at around £175 (estimate). In theory, the person testing will also get 'advice' by email by an Emed Dr, although in practice TMAU will likely be a new concept to them. We have not heard of anyone doing the TMAU urine test via Emed, so we cannot confirm all will go as expected. We have been told by them that the process should go as we expect. We wrote a post about this a while ago : TMAU testing via Emed .

If anyone does the TMAU urine test via Emed we would be most grateful to hear how it went. 

In the UK, it should be remembered that TMAU testing is free via the NHS.
