Really bad breath?


Hey people! I’m kinda new to this whole thing. So I have a weird question… no judging….

Can celiac or a gluten intolerance have a symptom of really, really bad breath???

Asking for a friend…

  1. Bad breath can in fact come from acids in the stomach so I wouldn’t doubt it tbh. Do you have gerd or anything also?

  2. Not that I know of. Honestly just looking into celiacs. No diagnosis yet. But severe stomach cramps after gluten and some skin issues. So I’m kind of just putting two and two together at this point…

  3. when i went on atkins, i was warned my breath would be gross and it was. heres what google tells me as the reasoning for it “Bad breath in the low/no-carb sect is often caused by certain chemicals that are released in the breath as the body burns fat. They are called ketones, and entering into a fat-burning state of ketosis is the hallmark of the Atkins diet.” so if youve already started cutting out foods, think back and see if they were mostly carbs and track what youre eating now and see if youre (unintentionally) doing a low-carb diet deal…if so, this could be the cause. i’m a super picky eater so for me, after cutting out gluten, i cut out a lot of carbs

  4. Get tested for H pylori. It’s one of the symptoms

  5. Gluten caused swelling in my tonsils from constantly eating it and tonsil stones which cause bad breath

  6. Peppermint capsules help. Can get them from Holland and Barrett .

  7. yogurt will help.

  8. My breath changed right away when I started a detox. So I’m gonna say it can happen. My mouth even tastes different to me now. I mean, my friends mouth….yeah.

  9. We noticed when we started probio5 our breath got so much better. For me I think it was due to it helping my gerd which causes bad breath. I had it worse when I pigged out on gluteny stuff (before I knew I was allergic). So hoping now with gf everything will be better (and smell better).

  10. Celiac people often have problems with vitamin deficiencies and issues with teeth which can cause/be associated with bad breath. My teeth are wrecked; scarred, broken, even have a capped baby tooth because they never grew properly. I drank milk like it was going out of style as a child.

    My bf is the mouth wash king, uses it a few times a day. Says his mouth tastes stale (but his breath is fine to me). We’re both celiac.

  11. Ya mine tastes like shit.. I’ve started brushing my teeth 3 times (was only 2) and chewing really minty gum

  12. no problem.

  13. Start a good probiotic if you haven’t

  14. Yes absolutely. There are over 300 sympts of celiac 🙂
