Hello
How do you know you have this if you have not been tested?

I understand the situation but I am not sure what your question for us is?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i know i have tmau from the smell on my body.sister had it [not diogonized] only lasted 2 years for her,also only armpits

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
OK
So what is your question for us?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i was hopeing to get some antibotics so i could relax over xmas

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
You can not get antibiotics at a question and answer service.
Only from a doctor who has seen you in person.
Not legal to do it any other way.

What type of doctor is it that is refusing to test you?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

my gp

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
Will your gp refer you to an endocrinologist?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

said no cure.so why would i want to know,i will probly pay for it myself,sorry did think you could perscribe some antibotics for me

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
You can not get a legal prescription that way

How about this
The odor is not normal
Your doctor has no explanation.
It can also be from a hormone problem.
Insist on a referral to an endocrinologist since your gp has no solution.
Then you are covered.
Make sense?
