The following info on foods and treatments was taken from http://www.disabled-world.com/health/tmau-trimethylaminuria.php
Eating fresh fruits and certain types of vegetables is a good way to lower the effects of TMAU. Ways that may help eliminate the fishy odor include avoiding foods containing trimethylamine and its precursors like the following:
- Soy products
- Brussel sprouts
- Milk from wheat-fed cows,
- Lecithin and lecithin-containing fish oil supplements
- Seafood (Freshwater fish have lower levels of trimethylamine N-oxide)
- Using body soaps with a moderate pH, between 5.5 and 6.5 (Here is a MEBO link for a list of soaps and their pH levels: http://www.bloodbornebodyodorandhalitosis.com/2008/11/list-of-ph-of-common-cleansers-for.html)
- Avoiding factors that promote sweating, such as exercise, stress, and emotional upsets.
- Taking low doses of antibiotics to reduce the amount of bacteria like trimethylamine in the gut
- Taking activated charcoal or other supplements to decrease the concentration of free trimethylamine in the urine
- Taking riboflavin (vitamin B2) supplements to enhance FMO3 enzyme activity. Recommended intake is 30 to 40mg taken 3 to 5 times per day with food.
