    I have been told that my overall body odour has changed and is noticeable.
    I can only put this down to diabetes and am a little upset that I have not noticed this happening.
    Anyone else been told they have a new smell.

    I am on forxiga and my urine has a very strong chemical smell. I would not be surprised if my body odor has changed as well. A persons aroma certainly has much to do with what they eat among many other things. Thats why we are each unique. Interesting question, I will ask my hubby.

    I've noticed my own "new smell" ... And I'm not happy about it. I'm constantly worried that others might smell me. It matters not what sprays I use.
