I am healthy, work out and try to avoid choline rich foods. Copper chlorophyllin doesn't help fish odor syndrome. I recently started taking enzymes, zinc, and probiotics, with no positive results. I take Deodorex, which cuts down my sweat a lot. I've had this for at least ten years and am tired of living with this. Since I live in Lubbock, no testing exists in my area. I'm at such a loss at what to do to control this.

I was diagnosed with TMAU (trimethylaminuria) or fish odor syndrome about 15 years ago. Giving it a name made it a little easier. Medicine of any kind for depression or any amines made my condition 10 times worse. I have accepted my condition and I am strong, I am not afraid.

After 5 minutes after I take shower I smell like fish.
