    I hope someone can help. My little sister alerted me to the fact that she can detect ketones in my beath and said its not very pleasant- really paranoid now what people will think at work, is there anything I can do, I know listorine strips have been advised are they good enough?? I drank a couple of strong cups of coffee today hoping that would mask it. I would hate to think when Im talking to someone I have bad breath!!! My pharamist advised drinking more water- I dont think I could physically drink any more lol. So paranoid now any help please???? How does anyone else combat this.

    You could put the mouthwash in a little squirty bottle and squirt when ness...and its a bit more transportable than swigging from a bottle xxx
