TMAU AWARENESS .. E-PETITION

Postby bugsy2k12 » Fri Nov 23, 2012 8:58 pm

Hi there, This is my first post ... I have created an e-petition to raise awareness of Trimethylaminuria with the UK Government especially with the DWP department, I would be grateful if you could sign the e-petition via this link .. http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/42219
i hope this may make a difference with the support of others.

DWP to recognise Trimethylaminuria (TMAU) as a serious medical condition.

Department for Work and Pensions


We hereby petition the government to recognise Trimethylaminuria as a serious medical condition with the addition of Trimethylaminuria as a medical condition on the DWP website Change the DLA application policy towards patients with Trimethylaminuria acknowledging TMAU to be eligible for a DLA award Also have the knowledge of a specialist metabolic consultant to hand if required for the decision making process so that TMAU can be clearly understood when deciding whether an applicant fulfils the criteria for DLA TMAU is a rare metabolic disease that causes a defect in the normal production of the enzyme FMO3 When FMO3 is not working correctly or if not enough enzyme is produced the body loses the abilty to properly break down TMA from precursor compounds in food digestion into TMAO through a process called N-oxygenation Trimethylaminuria then builds up and is released in the persons sweat/urine/breath/other bodily secrections giving off a strong unpleasent odor.

If we get 100,000 (UK Citazen's or residents) signiture's in a year it will be taken to the house of commons to be debated, I'd be grateful for your support.

I've just signed and will start getting friends and family and colleagues to sign as well. It only took me a few seconds to sign up.

Thank you so much for taking this initiative. I hope those signatures start rolling in...
