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

Mass email and letter-sending campaign targeting British MPs

MEBO's Public Relations Director in the UK, Karen, has been very instrumental through the years in spearheading our Raising Awareness Campaign with significant accomplishments. As a continuation of this process, she sends us the following message today announcing a mass email and letter-sending campaign targeting British medical practitioners with a message introducing TMAU and its debilitating nature. Please be a part of this very important mission by letting your voice be heard. The more physicians are exposed to body odor conditions, the better they will be equipped to handle a sufferer who seeks their medical care. The following is a message from Karen:


Don't be put off if the MPs did not respond to us last time; things are changing. Organisations (Medical Research Council etc) are starting to take notice of our voices. Please take part in a mass e-mail and letter-sending campaign targeting British MPs.

We want MPs to recognise the disabling nature of odour conditions and to acknowledge the right of odour sufferers to access education, employment or disability allowance.

On or around the 29th of November, we will remind the British health secretary of our presence and our needs.

I am drafting an e-mail for this purpose and have the contacts listed below:

Draft e-mail:

Metabolic malodour disorders such as Trimthylaminuria (TMAU) can be of a severely debilitating nature. As malodour disorder sufferers emit a repellent odour through their breath, skin and/or pores, their conditions impact upon almost every aspect of their lives.

TMAU, an incurable disorder in which the sufferer cannot oxidise the malodorous trimethylamine, is a condition which encroaches upon the wellbeing of others, thus rendering the sufferer a ‘social misfit’ and inhibiting their career progression. Our community requests specific protective legislation to ensure young odour sufferers reach their full potential in the education system and to enable employed odour sufferers to work in an environment free of harassment and discrimination.
The Disability Act does encompass conditions which adversely affect a person’s daily activities. Yet malodour sufferers often feel unprotected by anti-discriminatory legislation because malodour conditions are still not explicitly regarded as disabilities, and most sufferers do not feel entitled to Disability Living Allowance. If awareness of malodour disorders was increased and more doctors informed about them, then the malodour sufferer would feel more empowered in the workplace. Moreover, if protective legislation were put in place, and malodour disorders clearly recognised as being disabling conditions, malodour suffers could not be so easily excluded from society and their basic human rights denied them.
