Why do people with diabetes smell funny ?
It is like a fruity/sickly smell

blankity blank
maybe you are smelling the cleanliness from them , something that you are not used to

what a stupid question

I've never noticed that before...are you sure you haven't got a raspberry stuck up your nose?

Johnny C
They don't.
That particular person probably smells.

JustMe (:
I know people with diabetes and i cant say i've noticed anything like what you've described.

I have 15 family members with diabetes and 3 friends who all have diabetes and none of them smell at all. I've worked with many people who have diabetes and none of them smelled either.

They don't...

The only possible way that could be is the insulin.

Old Man Jennkins™
i dunno I've never smelled someone with diabetes...but maybe its cause of the insulin

SUE G online
wasnt aware that i smelt, nobody has ever said anything before

dwaraka n
the fruity odor means diabetes is un controlled other wise no comments like that present

both my parents suffer from diabetes and smell no different to me

Sometimes when having a hypo, a diabetics breath can smell a little like pear drops.

Emily B
i have not noticed that but before or close to the time when people are diagnosed with diabetes one of the symptoms of it is having fruity smelling breath if that answers your question

Dr.Vin ND
The only thing that may smell funny is the urine which contains a large amount of sugars. The sugars may also escape through the pores which may cause a fruity smell however, I have never heard of this happening.

Courtney B
Are you talking about type 1 (found in mostly younger people like kids)or type 2 ( Found in elderly or obese people) diabetes? Well if you're talking type 1 then I know its caused by extreme high blood sugar. The smell is usually is because of DKA or diabetic ketoasidosis. And that smell only comes from those people who are in that dangerous state.

When there is too little insulin in the blood keytones accumulate, acetone is one of the chemicals called keytone. It can be vividly smelt on the breath of an uncontrolled diabetic and smells like pear drops.
It is not a stupid question and rather valid.
