    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    I noticed about 2 hours after I eat my skin get warm, flushed,itchy and worse yet I seem to have a sickening sweet aroma. It was suggested to me that it could possibly be from ketones so I checked to see if I was passing it through urine but it was negative.My BS are usually around 95-114 when this occurs. Can someone please tell me what is happening? I was recently dx 7/12 and my PCP has no answer...

    While I am not a doctor, it sounds like an allergic reaction to me. Perhaps an allergist for testing would be the next step.

    Do you take any medication(s) around the time you eat? If so, that is what could be causing the symptoms. Or, maybe you are allergic to a something you consume at most or all meals.
