Trimethylaminuria (TMAU), also known as fish odour syndrome or fish malodour syndrome is a rare metabolic disorder where the body loses the ability to properly break down trimethylamine (TMA) found in certain foods into trimethylamine oxide (TMAO). Trimethylamine then builds up and is released in the person's sweat, urine, and breath, giving off a strong fishy odour.

Trimethylaminuria Support Group aims to bring together people who have trimethylaminuria, their families, friends and healthcare professionals in a positive, caring and supportive environment
