Why Is A Bad Odour Coming From My Mouth, Even Though I Brush Them Daily, Perfectly Covering Every Corner Of My Mouth, And Why Does It Happens In The Morning?

Halitosis, or bad breath, is a common dental complaint. Intraoral causes account for the majority of the cases. However, there are several factors that may contribute to bad odor: Oral diseases: caries (decay), periodontal (gum) disease or abscesses. Poor oral hygiene: inadequate frequency, improper brushing technique or dexterity issues. This may lead to food remaining on the teeth or the tongue, where intraoral bacteria can cause Systemic diseases: diabetic ketoacidosis, GERD, liver disease or ENT disease. Other factors: smoking, alcohol consumption and dry mouth. Treatment depends on the underlying cause: Improved oral hygiene: Proper brushing technique, flossing and tongue brushing.

    (edit: it's worth pointing out that "Ketosis " on it's own is not a bad thing, but Diabetic ketoacidosis is. I assume this is the point of the question)
    Diabetic Ketoacidosis comes from High (hyper) Blood Sugar not Low (Hypo). They could happen together, if you had high blood sugar for too long, the Ketoacidosis happened then you over treated the high and it went low. In this case you'd have 2 separate problems. Hypoglaycemia and Ketoacidosis. Low blood sugar will make you pass out and go into a coma eventually. Ketoacidosis is very painful and horrible to be part of. But I wouldn't say they increase each others danger very much.

    I'm not a doctor, but from what I know of diabetic conditions, both of these can be dangerous, and especially if they occur together (especially since ketosis would probably indicate serious hypoglycemia).
