diet doesn't seem to make a difference

dear dr lachmann,
my 8 y.o. daughter has mild TMAU, so i attend our metabolic unit, and we made dietary changes. the odour fluctuates from non-existent some days, mild most days, and then a few days of strong. but i can't relate it to her diet. our first test (after eating fish the night before!) showed TMA 14.3, ratio 93:7, then i cut out the forbidden foods and the next test was TMA 27.8, ratio 86:14!
i still wonder is there something else going on, because the diet doesn't seem to have an effect. i even tried giving her fish every day for a week, then eggs every day another week, but i can't relate the pattern of symptoms to her food at all.
should i request a referral to an endocrinologist maybe?
thank you very much.
