Hi everyone, I'm getting a blood test for Celiac next week, but I've been dealing with this really embarrassing problem and it's really made my life difficult. For the past 2 years I've had strong body odor, described as fecal/sulfur like. This body odor only began when I was hired to work in a bakery (it's so gross, I'm sorry). Before this I've been on long plane rides and out in public with no complaints, but now it's impossible for me to even go to the movie theater. I've seen ENTs for this, dentists, etc. -- no tonsil stones, gum disease, cavities. No doctors seem to have any idea what this could be. My only clue is it began when I started working at the bakery, and I'm constantly inhaling gluten for hours each day. The weird thing is I can't smell this on myself but everyone around reacts the same, so it has to be from me. Also forgot to mention, I had a blood panel done to see if it could be diabetes - and it came back with a severe B12 deficiency and vitamin D deficiency. My doctor said the normal level for B12 should be 1200, but mine was at 200. Has anyone here dealt with something similar? I'm not sure what else I can do. I know for a fact it's not TMAU since my in-laws reacted to me recently, but before that I would see them often and there was no complaints about any smells. And I traveled a lot on planes before all of this too (maybe 6 or more times a year) and there was zero reactions.
