Denver TMAU Test Lab survey click here
click to Read more/less

USA survey for anyone who wants to improve Denver TMAU test

begun : Dec22
end : no ending for now

A trainee genetic counselor is working at the Denver TMAU test lab. Probably as part of her training. As a project she wishes feedback on any aspect of the Denver TMAU test and process. You can fill in the survey and/or email her (email address is in survey). It's meant for USA people, but perhaps others can give their view too (as we have so few opportunities).

quote from her rareconnect post

"Hello all! I wanted to make you aware of a research study being conducted to better understand the experience and needs of individuals with trimethylaminuria with a goal of being able to create improved patient and healthcare provider education materials. Any participation is completely voluntary and all responses remain confidential. Feel free to use the contact information within the link with any questions or share the survey with others with TMAU."

Lady on UK mid-morning TV show talking about her TMAU (Trimethylaminuria)

Thank you Karen for bravely raising awareness so articulately on a high-profile TV show. Our community is the benefactor. In the 8 minute interview, Karen manages to explain that 'fish odor syndrome' does not cover the range of smells people can have. She also mentions the MEBO Research petition, which is part of the campaign by our international patient advocacy group to raise awareness, reach out to sufferers in the community to provide support, and to initiate research.

For the last 10 years, 44-year-old Karen James has suffered from Trimethylaminuria (TMAU) otherwise known as fish-odour syndrome.

Her breath constantly smells of rotten eggs and the problem also affects her sweat under times of stress. Unfortunately there is no cure.

Karen’s symptoms started showing following some travel injections and a recurrent throat infection but she was told by doctors to just live with it. It was only through her own research that she find out about TMAU.

Karen, who joins us today alongside Dr Dawn, describes her condition as an unrecognised disability and finds it difficult to lead a normal life.
