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

current participants : 113 (update 18dec20)

Egg white protein powder as a source of protein on the TMAU 'low choline' diet

Egg White powder has almost no choline

Those who feel that trimethylaminuria is their only problem and fully explains their metabolic body odor condition are very likely to try the 'low choline' diet as the main part of their 'trimethylamine control' program. Probably the major problem with this diet is finding a source of protein, since most sources (soya, meat, eggs, legumes etc) seem to have a lot or quite a lot of choline content. Most people following the diet are aware that whole eggs are one of the richest sources of choline in the diet, however it is the yolk that is rich in choline (680mg/100g). The egg white has almost none ( as it happens, pure egg white protein powder is also one type of protein that body builders may choose as a source of extra protein for themselves, so egg white protein powder is quite readily available.

As MEBO gets commission through purchases bought through it's links at no conditional cost to you, we searched Amazon for the best price for a decent sized container of pure egg white protein powder. So far this looks to be the best value we can find for USA. If anyone sees a better value tub on Amazon they can inform us if they wish. Let us know what you think.

So, for those wishing to make sure they get enough protein on a strict 'low choline' diet, you are welcome to purchase this or any other brand on Amazon through our link at no additional cost. As long as you go through any of our Amazon links to buy anything, MEBO will get commission.

Note about 'low choline diet' : It has been demonstrated that mice fed a low choline diet developed 'reversible fatty liver' and this is thought to be the same possible outcome for humans, therefore a 'no choline' diet has it's risks. For those who feel TMAU is their only problem, It's probably best to try for a diet that is 'low choline' rather than none.
Pubmed abstract on low choline and fatty liver

For your information,
Suggested RDA for choline in humans is currently
Adult Male : 550mg
Adult female : 420mg

It is also suggested that those on the low choline diet take extra folic acid (folate) to replace the choline's role as a 'methyl donor' as much as possible.
