What do you do if you tried everything and you still stink?
A decade or so ago I was diagnosed as lactose intolorance, but even when I went off of all dairy products for more than a week I'd still have stinky gas. I'm tired of this because it's ruining my social life, and preventing me from having new friends or a boyfriend(never had one but bet that's it) and it'll probably prevent me from getting a job. I don't have a sense of smell though but the people that know me really well tell me when it stinks or not when I flactuate. I tried beano, everything. I'm on charcoal pills and I still flactuate and they're still smelly! I've never been to an allergy doc though. Also most of my gas is unintentional and unexpected. This is soo embarrasing! Also my dorm room stinks too of "dead gas(from flactuating)". All the doctors say is that if they could find the cure they'd be millionares. Am I just doomed or what? Any suggestions? Where do you find a food allergy doc? Never been to one.

carbs give you gas. Sugars, veggies, bread, and dairy all have some. Milk might not be the only thing giving it to you. I'd try switching to a low carb diet and then gradually introduce carbs again to figure out which ones are affecting you the most.

There is a lot of information online about this disease - just enter "TMAU" or "trimethylaminuria" into an Internet search engine.
