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)

Young Florida lady talks TMAU on her local TV news

Dec 2019 :
Young lady from Florida talks about having Trimethylaminuria (TMAU) on the local news.

Alyssa was in kindergarten in North Okaloosa County, when her mom told her she had a rare disease commonly called "fish odor syndrome." Sometimes the smell is not noticeable at all. Other times, such as when she exercises, it can be very strong ...

... Some people with Trimethylaminuria fight depression and thoughts of suicide. Alyssa is determined to live on her terms. As she heads into her mid-teens, when dating could come to the forefront, she says she's not afraid. Alyssa explained, "It's like if they don't want to be with me or be around me because of it, then they don't deserve me. And I don't care."
Link to transcript and video :

15 year old Alyssa talks to her local news station about having TMAU.
The community thank you Alyssa, as it is a very taboo subject.
Her attitude is fantastic.
Note : the item was on the news on 25 Dec 2019

Possible actions :
Send a link to the NIH Director Francis Collins.
Ask to get on local news ?
Ad campaign ?
Other ideas ?

Comment :
Its been a long time since a TMAU item was on TV news or TV at all. Maybe since people now take to youtube, which is there for everyone always.
It's not clear how much impact such an item has on awareness, but everything is welcome !
Probably the big impacts would be high-audience shows, popular youtube channels, or an ad campaign ?
