Hi, please could you answer my questions???

Postby jean » Thu Feb 24, 2011 11:06 pm

Hi, all, am new to this site & am glad i joined it. I was diagnosed with TMAU for over a year, at first i thought nothing off it until all the nasty comments started, etc, i can smell fish, fishy this and that! I then realised it was me. It was coming from my private parts!

I went to the doctors which put me on antibiotic, still didnt work, so he put me on a longer course which still didnt work. i was then referred onto a dietician, they guided mw ith a very strict low choline diet. At first i gave it ago but then realised it wasnt doind me any good? maybe i didnt give it enough time to work?

Can you tell me wat helped u all?


i would be greatly appreciated!

Jean,
jean

Hi Jean, welcome to the site, I hope we can help you. How long did you try the diet? And are you primary or Tmau2? Did they advise you to take any suppliments, and did you take them? Just so you get some useful advice...Best regards, kittycatx

HI Kittycat,

I have tried the diet for about 3 weeks or so, and still no progress, its really hard wen u r so used to eating the food you want! I found it really stressfull!! I had also been subscribed antibiotics twice but i had still no progress on that!

I am so glad i have found this site as i am able to talk about things i have hidden for so long! Believe me i am near breaking point, if there is any advice or thing si can do to help me i would appreciate it so much!

PS i am not a fake, but i no were u r comin from thinkin it was a smart remark, but believe me i am well used to all the sarcastic comments from other people,

again thank u if u can give me advice!

Jean,

xxx

Hello again Jean, :D I'm glad we sorted that out, and you're not a troll. Sorry, years of innuendo have made me a bit jaded! I would say that you didn't give the diet long enough (also maybe have cheated here and there?) It takes time to get all the TMA out of your system, and yours comes from your privates because that's where you excrete most of it from. So.. Part of the treatment is getting your head round the fact you suffer from it, and coming to terms with that. You've got to work on that, and be tough with yourself to follow the protocol. Count choline values like slimmers count calories. Every meal and drink has choline in it, and you won't lose weight if you slather olive oil on it, trust me :? Also, I used to think probiotics were mythical creatures invented by manufacturers to flog more yoghurt, now I'm evangelical and think they're the big hope. Finally, if you've been tested and the creatine (?) showed that your liver wasn't producing enough FMO3 you might want to try vit B2 or/and Milk Thistle. Remember, that this condition does shape your life, but needn't ruin it, and coming on this forum gives you a chance to talk about it to people who understand every word you say. love kittyx Ps. Don't forget to do something to sweat it out as well. xx

hi kittykat,

i am so glad i have found this site, i really am at breaking point! do u have the same as me, the smell from ur private part? or where is yours developing from? Have you controlled your smell?

i still havent got my head around as there is too many nasty ppl out there, this condition has made me so paranoid, if someones mentions a smell i immediately walk out! i will give the diet another go, yes!! but is there anything else i could control as well as my diet or is that the main problem?

ps thanks again for your help! i am so relieved i have someone to finally talk to!

xx

jean,

since you say the odour is coming from your groin area, maybe you could ask your Gp to refer you to a gynae specialist because the chemicals excreted may have changed the natural microbes in that area and you may actually have an infection as well as the chemical odour problem (Im presuming you are female, not french john???) Actually even if you are male it might be the same thing, a microbe inbalance due to the chemicals excreted changing pH of your skin.Worth a try if you are looking for something else to try other than antibiotics and diet, which you are already getting help with from your doctor.
