Bad Breath

My husband was dianosed with type 2 diabetes almost 2 years ago.  He has no family history and was only slightly overweight.  In the beginning he got his sugar under control.  after about 8 months nothing helped.  He now weighs around 155 and eats continually.  I have trouble getting him to the doctor.  He has always had pretty bad breath in the mornings but more recently, his breath smells like vomit early into the night.  Is this a sign of a greater problem?

Hi,
Your husband certainly should be followed up by hs doctor soon, especially if you think that his diabetes control is becoming poor. The worsening bad breath can be a sign of many things, come of which may not be related to diabetes at all, but may. Be sure that he has kept all dental appointments because gum disease is a problem esp in folks with diabetes. Speak to his doctor soon.
Take care.
