News & Views on Systemic Body Odor and Halitosis such as trimethylaminuria TMAU. If you have fecal odors or bowel odors it may be metabolic/systemic

TMAU bucket overfloweth ?

A quick post on the bucket analogy again. This is true for any malodorous VOC circulating in people. Basically, if any enzyme (my guess, FMO3) cannot fully metabolize a load of any VOC it detoxifies, then the person ends up with that odorous compound circulating. It doesn't matter if they have normal enzyme function or subnormal enzyme function. The load is overloading the enzyme.

This is where the bucket analogy comes in again.

Someone with a genetic weakness has a smaller bucket.
someone with overgrowth has a normal bucket but a huge overload.

Update Aug 17 :
Genos is back with it's EXOME test

Note :
Exome/Genome testing may be better option than single gene testing.

See this post : link

Note : Genos Exome Testing.

Exome testing is almost the same price now as single gene testing. Also Genos is consumer friendly, which standard DNA labs are not.

So the blog offer to test solely for FMO3 is almost obsolete, and so no longer offered.


Does Genos fully sequence FMO3 gene ?

At the moment it is not clear, but hoped this will become clear over the next few months

Note : possible 'wild west' way of testing FMO3
Use an ancestry dna site and rummage through the raw data
