Trimethylaminuria is a presumably genetic defect in the enzymatic conversion of trimethylamine (odor of stale fish) to trimethylamine-N-oxide (non-odiferous). Diagnosis is made by detection of excess trimethylamine in urine. Available treatments include dietary restrictions of choline and foods containing trimethylamine inhibitors. Test sent to Mayo Medical Laboratories; performed by Children's Hospital Colorado.
