I am 42 and weight 314lbs. I woke up approximately, 2 weeks ago to a sweet smell coming from my pores. I wasn't having any major night sweats. Just turned on the heat for the first time and it got a little hot. I was a little concerned when I started smelling the sweet fruity smell again on my breath. I immediately went to the pharmacy and bought a blood glucose test. I tested myself at 9:15PM and it read 81mg. I wasn't satisfied because I read on the web that it is a sympton of untreated diabetes. I tested again and it read 86mg. I felt a little better. I woke up the next morning and tested again and it read 88mg. For what I read, these readings are normal. I called the doctor to make an appt but it is not until Dec. 1, 2008. Could there be any other reason for this smell? I have no other symptons (dry mouth, thirst, fatigue, hunger, loss of weight, excessive urination). I have continued to check my blood glucose but it is always under 100 no matter what time of day I check. The last time I stuck my finger, I got a lot of blood so like most people, I pop my finger in my mouth to stop the bleeding. The blood was sweet. So I am really concerned.
