If Someone Has A Strange Odor On His Breath, Is It An Indication Of Diabetes?

Hello, Your breath helps you determine if your diabetes is under control. While it sounds implausible, it’s definitely true—and an issue every person with diabetes should learn to recognize.

    If your blood sugar gets high enough to put you into diabetic ketoacidosis, you’ll know, because you’ll feel really sick. You’d most likely be vomiting, having confusion, peeing constantly, possibly breathing in deep gasping breaths.

    Diabetes can be diagnosed through some very simple blood and urine tests though, so you can get a definitive answer fairly easily.
