Seven yr old with rotten egg burps and high blood sugars.
Patient : My son is 7yrs old and has been diagnosed with Hyperglycemia. There is a line of diabetes, including his father, and we are pretty sure that's where it's going for my son too. Recently he has developed these fowl burps that smell like rotten eggs. (without eating eggs) He says his stomach does not hurt or anything. My question is...what could be causing the burps. My husband also gets them when his blood sugar gets too high for too long. Is that the connection?
