Recently, I often smell like acetone from my breath. The aroma goes on and on and on and on. Sometimes it goes away for weeks or months, then reappears. Please explain why is that so? Am I sick?

1 Answer:

Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Acetone is an ingredient that can be found in paint remover, nail polish, and plastic making materials. However, acetone is also found in reasonable amounts in the human body.


When you feel your breath smelling of acetone, it means there is an increase in the level of ketones in your body, and this is usually associated with:

Diabetes
keto diet
Alcohol consumption


So if you feel you have never consumed alcohol and are not on a diet or consuming certain foods, we suggest that you check with your doctor to be detected whether there is a tendency towards diabetes, or maybe there are other conditions that occur in you. Meanwhile, our advice is to reduce sweet foods, drink more water, and increase consumption of vegetables and fruit. I hope you and your family are always healthy.


That's all, hope it helps.
