Sweet taste in mouth tonight

(Juanita Rice) #1

Hi everyone, I have been on keto for 36 days. There is a sweet taste in my mouth tonight. Being on keto, I haven’t eaten anything sweet. I finished my last meal for the day at 5pm.My blood glucose 2 hours later at 7 pm was 107mg/dl. Is this normal.

If people are telling you that your breath has a fruity smell, then the sweet taste might possibly be acetone, one of the ketone bodies the liver makes, and which gets excreted in the breath. Another possibility is that your taste has started to adjust, from the absence of sugar, and now you are tasting sweetness that you never noticed before, because it was masked by the much stronger taste of sugar.
