The Relationship Between Bad Breath And Intestinal Health?
Tonight, I want to ask if there is a relationship between odor and intestinal health? I have experienced bad breath since 4 years ago. Previously, I had never felt any complaints from others. This happened exactly 4 years ago where I had a pretty bad stomachache, diarrhea and vomiting for 1 day. I was permitted school the next day and the next day, when I entered school, I began to feel this strange symptom. Some of my friends complained like there was a smell of farts / sulfur / stale / rotten eggs even though I myself could not feel it. A few months later, I ventured to ask a number of my friends and it was true that the smell came from me. There is no day when I feel freedom. Every day I can see the gestures of people around me covering my nose, sneezing, coughing even from a considerable distance. The smell can fill the room and almost every day I hear complaints from people around.

It is true that bad breath or what in medical terms is called halitosis is most often caused by disorders of the digestive system, which starts from the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. Nevertheless, the most common cause of bad breath is interference with the upper gastrointestinal tract, which is a disturbance in the cleanliness of the mouth, teeth, nose, and throat. However, if you have checked and confirmed that your mouth, nose and throat are in a clean and healthy condition, then other possible causes of the problem are:
Gastritis and GERD Inflammatory Bowel Disease, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease Irritable Bowel Syndrome Tumors and cancer Systemic chronic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, kidney failure, etc. Trimethylaminuria, or fish odor odors that are only felt by others and are not felt by yourself often are chronic systemic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, kidney failure, etc. Trimethylaminuria, or fish odor odors that are only felt by others and are not felt by yourself often happens, because your sense of smell is accustomed to the odor (because of continuous exposure) so it has less sensitivity. Since you have been experiencing this condition for a long time, I advise you to immediately consult a specialist in internal medicine to be able to do a more complete examination, including general physical examination, blood laboratory examination, radiological examination (ultrasound, x-ray), endoscopic examination (gastroscopy and colonoscopy) which aims to look directly at the condition of your stomach and intestines, to assess whether there is irritation, injury, or bacterial, viral, or fungal infections, and the possibility of lumps such as tumors, polyps, and others.
Some things you can do at home include:
Reducing the consumption of foods or drinks containing sulfur, such as onions, chilies, seafood, eggs, meat, etc. Keeping your teeth and mouth clean, by brushing your teeth at least 2-3 times a day Many consuming water Keep the spirit to find out the cause of disease you, because these conditions are experienced by many others and in general can be cured Hopefully my reply can help and hopefully get well soon.
