Really Bad Breath, Worse On Gluten

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have had ongoing, permanent bad breath (my little children always tell me) since going gluten light,(after a period of gluten free) and have noticed it's been getting worse, but much much worse since doing this challenge.

I am also aware it's a sign of candida infection. I was just wondering if any one else noticed that they had bad breath when on gluten and then it got better when they went gluten free? Or if it is a known sign of celiac disease / gluten intolerance. I haven't seen it on any lists of symptoms anywhere, but often real peoples experiences are the best ....

thanks

I've been off gluten three years now, but your post reminded me. It was an issue for both my son and I. We were diagnosed at the same time. We don't notice it now, even when we get glutened, so I'd forgotten all about it. Hopefully it will go away for you too.

I read something about bad breath on a food intolerance list I'm on. One person mentioned that diabetes can cause odor. Another mentioned this link: http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/lowcarbliving/a/Is-Your-Low-Carb-Diet-Giving-You-Bad-Breath.htm (low carb diet causing bad breath) I personally don't know anything about this topic, but thought I'd forward this info in case it helps...

Eosinophilic Esophagitus also causes bad breath. Have you noticed and creamish/ white spots on your tonsils? It smells like puss.

Diebetic ketosis smells like acetone (an ingredient in nail polish remover)

Sinus problems, candida overgrowth, food intolerances/ GI problems, and dry mouth/dental issues can also be a factor.

It is a reason to see a doctor.

I think bad breath can definitely be a gluten intolerance/celiac symptom. I never realized I had an issue with bad breath until my fiancee told me about it. According to him, it's only present when I've had gluten and my breath is normal when I'm gluten free - which I've been for about 9 months now. He can tell if I've had any accidental gluten by my breath (in addition to my other symptoms - mostly bloating and migraine). Anyway, he says it smells 'like something crawled down my throat and died'. Yikes!

Yes.. I am experimenting the same thing.. I have not been diagnosed with Celiac but I have PCOS and decided to try going Gluten free because I heard that it may jump start my cycle on it's own..

But I did notice that my breathe is fresher.. I had a deep cleaning and it didn't help.. So I thought that my case was more severe.. But I guess my body isn't able to handle Gluten very well., I have been Gluten free for about a week or so.. Thank u for your post!!
