    I'm a Hospice Nurse, and yes, sometimes there is a death smell. That's one reason, when I do post mortem care, I look for perfume, Cologne, even baby powder. I sprinkle some on the patient, some on the bed linens-not enough to be overpowering, just so the family has a better sensory memory when they say their final goodbye.

    I know cancer has a distinctive odor oftentimes, that I detect. And there must be something to it, because dogs can be trained to "sniff out cancer".
    I don't see much dying where I am cause I am not in the hospital setting, but I can smell certain infections and some weird foul odor that goes with certain cancers.
    I have often thought I was crazy, but not anymore. My sense of smell is so keen it drives me crazy sometimes. I smell things my colleagues do not, and often.

    i have noticed this as well and googled "smell of death" because i smelled it last night at work. i've smelled it before, even with animals. i was curious if anyone else has. I am sure when i go to work next my patient will be dead. smelling that smell last night helped me care for him better. i hope he goes in peace.

But physicians and nurses involved in end-of-life care know that certain symptoms are usually associated with the body's shutting down.

  • Nutritional Ketosis And Starvation Ketosis

    At this point, I consider myself pretty immune to what internet trolls say to me. I have a pretty tough skin, usually laugh off nonsensical comments, and carry on with my day. This last time was different. When checking the social media account for my ketosis supplement company, Perfect Keto, I noticed a rather ridiculous comment. To the best of my memory, the comment said something like this: “How dare you promote ketosis?! I HATE KETOSIS! My ...

  • Ketoacidosis Vs Ketosis

    Ketoacidosis is lethal. It is responsible for over 100,000 hospital admissions per year in the US with a mortality rate of around 5%. In other words, ketoacidosis is to blame for about 5,000 deaths per year. The cause? A deadly combination of uncontrolled hyperglycemia, metabolic acidosis, and increased ketone body levels in the blood (more on this deadly combination later). Luckily, this lethal triad rarely affects individuals who don’t have d ...

Originating back in the 1920’s, this very low-carbohydrate diet was originally used as a treatment for epilepsy. Today, the ketogenic diet has become popular for weight loss, however, it is not right for everyone. To better understand how the ketogenic diet works, we first need to know how macronutrients – carbohydrates, proteins and fat ...
