TMAU / FMO3 / Systemic Body Odor : Campaign Ideas

Feel free to use / discuss / inspire :

Make TMAU / Meta-BO mainstream
This should be a priority goal.
Everyone should know about TMAU / Meta-BO conditions.

Write to politicians :
Probably only politicians putting pressure on the health system will cause change for TMAU treatment
What to do :
Write to your local main politician(s).
Write to a politician associated to the health system, or thought to be potentially sympathetic.

Ideas to write to them :
Ask them to improve TMAU testing access, or even to establish a regional test.
Tell them about the concept of metabolic/systemic body odor, and that TMAU may be just one of many.

Ask high-profile frequent youtuber Dr's/Naturopaths about TMAU / Meta-Bo


1. TMAU Awareness Week (twice yearly).
2. Political 'TMAU Patron'. Write to politician (ask to be a 'TMAU' patron).
3. TMAU Friends of  Sheffield Children's Hospital.

This is an ongoing list.

TMAU Awareness Week :
some ideas :
Twice yearly (why wait a year ?). Say March and October.
Try for one Ad campaign per week (e.g. bus ad, TV ad).
Maybe a webinar/conference.

Political TMAU Patron :
Write to politician.
Ask them to be TMAU 'Patron'.
Or an 'Official Friend' of TMAU group etc.

TMAU Friends of Sheffield Children's Hospital (only UK test lab):
Idea is to make testing easier for TMAU people etc.

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
