Diabetic Ketoacidosis

As fat is broken down, acids called ketones build up in the blood and urine. In high levels, ketones are poisonous. This condition is known as ketoacidosis. Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is sometimes the first sign of type 1 diabetes in people who have not yet been diagnosed. It can also occur in someone who has already been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Infection, injury, a serious illness, missing doses of insulin shots, or surgery can lead to DKA in people with type 1 diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes can also develop DKA, but it is less common. It is usually triggered by uncontrolled blood sugar, missing doses of medicines, or a severe illness. Continue reading >>

    My teeth look awesome because I brush 10-15 times a day. Listerine breath strips don't touch it. Neither gum nor mints help. I don't even want to be in public.
    Nothing is worse than catching a whiff of my own breath and wondering what died and then realizing it's my innards slowly rotting and wafting out of my mouth.
    How long does this rotting corpse smell last and what can I do?

    I don't know how long it lasts but I hear you. I'm glad I'm not seeing anyone right now because the only creature alive who could want to kiss me (and does) is my dog.

    Ketosis breath is typically "sweet" smelling.....similar to juicy fruit gum, oddly enough. If you truly have ketosis breath....eat some carbs, you really shouldn't be in ketosis if you're getting 20g of carbs a day. This isn't the Atkins diet we're doing here.
    However....I see you're recently sleeved and your body is going to be in upheaval..."Cleaning house" so to speak...it's common to have a bit more bacteria living in the oral region than usual causing some rank breath. Try a tongue brush and attempt to get waaaay back on your tongue without gagging yourself....you'd be amazed by how much gunk can live back there....also, a good mouthwash swish and gargle will help. This too shall pass...hang in there and best of luck.
