TMAU is a rare, metabolic disorder where the body cannot break down something called trimethylamine. Thus, the trimethylamine builds up in your body and you give off a strong odour in: your sweat, urine and breath.
It's more common in women than men and stress and diet may play a part in worsening of symptoms.
The illness is usually genetic and is treated through controlling your diet by avoiding certain foods which make the illness worse, medication (through antibiotics, laxatives or supplements) and lifestyle changes. However, there is no approved treatment for TMAU. Treatments are really just there to help control it.
The illness can affect the lives of sufferers considerably, affecting their social lives and relationships. It's not helpful that society may judge or isolate individuals who may smell, even though it's not their fault, which has mental effects too.
If you wish to learn more, go to the NHS website where TMAU's explained in more detail.
