From Winston Salem, North Carolina, USA:

Is there any product that will help eliminate acetone breath for a diabetic adult? It is so embarrassing.


When you think about how high the glucose levels are when acetone is exhaled in the breath of people with diabetes, I would suggest that treating the sugars would be the first important treatment. If the sugars are not high, you don't have the acetone breath.
