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

Why fecal body odor and gas body odor ?

Image For visual purpose only 
This is a post about 'fecal body odor' coming through the skin

Gas body odor will be when the mcirobes are 'partying'
Fecal body odor will be when the microbes have died

That seems to be the rule for gas and fecal smells. Gas, or 'fart', is when the microbes are 'feasting' (the odor being the bi-products of their 'feast'.  Fecal odor is when the microbes have died (so it's the smell of gut microbe death, in a sense)

Usually these compounds are probably sulfides or amines mostly, possibly to be detoxified by the FMO3 enzyme

for those who have FMO3 DNA tested
survey still OPEN

FMO3 DNA testing
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
