The doctor told me how to identify cancer by smell

Unusual body odor can be a sign of destructive processes in the body, or malfunction of certain organs, said the TV channel "Russia 1" the doctor-the dermatologist Irina Skorohodova.

She told me that often when cancer man begins to sweat, and the body forming a specific "smell of stale meat."

Skorohodova explained that during the struggle with malignant tumors the body produces a "tumor necrosis factor", which increases body temperature.

"And one of the hallmarks of cancer is a slight fever, which lasts a long time," said she.

To reduce the body temperature, the body initiates the thermoregulation system, and the person begins to sweat.

From diabetics, in turn, often smells like acetone or rotten apples.

"If you have diabetes mellitus reduces insulin levels, so, glucose is not included in the cells, and they need to produce energy and therefore move on to fats," said the dermatologist.

In this process, in the body of patients with diabetes ketone bodies are formed, which are transformed into acetone, noticed Skorohodova.

If you have problems with liver and kidneys sweat gets the smell of ammonia, she added.
