Gilberts syndrome and halitosis

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have gilberts syndrome and suffer from tiredness, dizziness and digestive problems. My most stressing symptopm by far is halitosis. i have been assured by my dentist that my oral health is excellent and my mouth is kept clean. I have tried sugar free gum. drinking water etc. i have acid reflux and my gp thinks this may be the cause but i don't seem to be able to get rid of it. I have also tried apple cider vinegar without much help.

    Does the bad breath smell come from your stomach and occasionally you pass gas that smells the same? An acidic smell that isn't your breath but more a weird smell you can smell but others can't? I have this problem as well and can't pin it down to anything other then black pepper. If you find an answer let me know.

      Thanks for the suggestion but i know it smells. i have been told by the children i work with and it is not associated with gas. i do have acid reflux when the smell is worse, and i feel food is a trigger but am struggling to work out exactly what it is.

    Try kefir - a probiotic yoghurt/drink.  If you cannot find it on shelves, make your own with 'seeds' from health store and milk.  Some people use soy milk or coconut milk with the seeds.  Instructions come with the seeds.

    Also probiotic supplements.
