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

London Meetup yesterday. Karen describes ...

Karen is the longtime organiser of London Meetups.
Here she describes yesterdays London Meetup.
Royal Festival Hall, South Bank, London.

On Saturday 2nd December some of our community chose to meet up on the South Bank in London. The 4 of us chatted for about 4 hours.

Apart from exchanging ideas, we discussed the issues raised by the UK 'TMAU test' survey. It seems that people are finding it more difficult than ever to acquire a TMAU test via the NHS General Practitioner. Some doctors are even suggesting their malodour-suffering patients are mentally unstable and have asked for evidence (for example, pungent clothing!) as a basis for granting a test via the NHS! We are all aware that the NHS has budget restrictions, but we are all adamant that we have as much right to use the NHS, and, therefore to have the TMAU test,  as any other UK citizens.  Another worrying issue we talked about was the higher prevalence of negative test results since 2016. Some people, who tested positive several times prior to 2016, are now testing negative. We are very worried about this trend.

But we didn't just talk about the problems faced by our community. It was a great day out because the weather was perfect and the venue was stunning. South Bank had 7 Christmas trees and the view of the Hungerford and Waterloo bridges, River Thames and the London Eye, was lovely at night. Loads of pubs and restaurants have outdoor areas with heating now, so we were spoiled for choice. Central London at Christmas time is really special.

An organization named dermetel is selling dmb supplement for $125. Is this legitimate or a scam? No one answers the telephone number and when traced it leads to a cell phone line in Kent.

This DMB supplement is being produced by Dermetel,org, a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C. You can look it up on Google. It appears to be a legitimate product, altho we will need to know more about the background of testing, approvals, etc.

Somebody needs to check this out! "If not us, who; if not now, when?"
