With BO, Also Consider Gut Bacterial Disturbances


Dysbiotic (messed up) bacterial balances in the gut can not only produce stinky poopies or malodorous gas, but through the "leaky gut" effect can possibly transmit such odors and other manifestations body-wide. Pathenogenic infections of the gut, as well as gut bacterial imbalances of normal bacteria due to various causes, can be evaluated through a Comprehensive Stool Analysis (link #1). This can be helpful if you routinely experience some sort of gut disturbance. If not, I'd probably pass of this $300 test.

The small bowel (upper bowel) has modest amounts of bacteria due in part to stomach acid and constant propulsion of gut contents (and therefore bacteria) down the tract, limiting bacterial overgrowth. The large bowel (colon, or lower bowel), however, is normally full of bacteria. A disorder called "Short Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth" (SBBO) can lead to overgrowth of bacteria there, typically causing abdominal pain and cramping, diarrhea (which can sometimes be bloody), dyspepsia, mucus in stool, bloating, gas, bad breath, or weight loss. This may or may not have an effect on overall Body Odor , but gastrointestional bacterial disturbances in general can result in odors, although I would think (strictly my opinion) that such Body Odor might only be present if one ALSO experienced routinely malodorous stools or gas. In simplistic terms, a stinky bowel might stink up the body since a leaky gut is quite porous, while inoffensive bowels (bowel movements and gas aren't really supposed to smell much, believe it or not) shouldn't likely be a cause for Body Odor , I would think (speculative on my part). Breath odor, on the other hand, is supposedly common with SBBO. Info on SBBO in links #2-4.
