Smell of sour dough or yeast, elevated triglycerides. Worse smell after workout

I smell a sour dough or sour yeast type of smell. It isn t constant and I can t tell if it is coming from my anus , mouth (stomach) or nose . A blood test showed I had elevated triglycerides not sure if this would have anything to do with it. I asked my doctor and he said I didn t smell and that it was probably my breath but the odor seems to get worse later in the day. It is also stronger when I workout.

Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be warning signs of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. The bacteria cause toxins to form in the mouth, which irritate the gums. If gum disease continues untreated, it can damage the gums and jawbone.Many other diseases and illnesses may cause bad breath. Here are some to be aware of: respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia or bronchitis, chronic sinus infections, postnasal drip, diabetes, chronic acid reflux, and liver or kidney problems.Hope this helps.
