Thank you all for your collective info on caffeine and food diets. I strongly believe I have TMAU and I have had it for about 16 years and I'm 33 now. By the grace of god I was able to control it for 8 years but, in Aug 2010 my condition worsen to the point of no control. I used to be able to just use body wash and detox myself and I would be able to go without a shower for at least 14 hours until I needed another before my strong Body Odor came back. Now nothing works except if I go on a extreme diet. I have noticed the difference in the level of odor based on my family's reaction to me. As long as I ate simple foods I seemed to be a little bit more bearable. I miss dating.....but with such a odor condition like this it's very hard to date I'd be lucky if a woman even is willing to try! Most will make excuses and never keep a date with me much less follow up. I'm come to the point of accepting the fact that I will live with this for the rest of my life so I need to learn to live regardless.
The worse thing about this the lack of medical knowledge by the medical community and the lack of support from family or friends. This makes dealing with this far more difficult. I still somehow cling to a small hope that a cure would be found one day but I'm almost sure it won't be in my life time. I'll keep praying for all of us who go through this.
