Body odor is common, but when the odor is particularly bad it can be a sign of possible health concern. A person's diet is commonly linked to how they smell and The Doctors note that red meat and alcohol can contribute to having bad body odor. Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage can also create sulfur buildup in the body, and the smell can leak out of the body in the form of sweat. One method that can help to reduce the smell these veggies produce is to cook them in water and salt.
These types of scents are usually not concerning, but are there scents that could be a sign of a problem?
Sweat that smells like acetone (which is nail polish remover) and breath that smells sweet (due to an extra buildup of glucose) could be a sign of diabetes.
Body odor that smells musty or stale could be a sign of an issue with your liver, and even possibly failure of the organ.
And if your body smells like ammonia or fish, this could be an indication of kidney failure.
The Doctors also note body odor can be linked to stress, the medications you are taking, and fluctuations in your hormone levels. As always, if you are experiencing a major change in your body odor, please speak with your doctor.
