i am diabetic,and i do drink pepsi

Thanks for the details. I would like to say that there are few important possibilities which should be investigated such as acid-reflux induced complications which can give such taste disorder or smell. Also important to rule out possibilities such as oral infection, neuropathy, nutritional deficiency or any tongue, oral malignancy (any discoloration or swelling or change in shape). In rare cases this can be due to anxiety or psychological induced. I will advise to see your physician for evaluation and tests such as throat swab test, full blood count, serum vitamin B12 level, HBA1C range, thyroid function tests, urea breath test. I will suggest to use Pepto-Bismol available OTC for four days. Avoid spicy or junk food, avoid carbonated drinks, avoid garlic or ginger. Drink plenty of clear fluids, take at least five portions of vegetables or fruits in a day. Take multivitamins one tablet daily. I will also strongly suggest to make an appointment with your doctor soon as possible to rule out any thing serious.

i only get the smells when i dont empty my bowels all the way,then i get the shit smell from mouth & ass

Yes this can be due to any of the possibilities which I mentioned above and incomplete fecal evacuation can be the triggering factor. I will also suggest to add probiotics in diet and take Syrup. Pepto-Bismol available OTC for four days. Follow the guidelines which I gave and you will find these helpful. I will again suggest to see physician for evaluation and baseline blood tests along with tests which I mentioned.

what is leaky gut syndrome

Leaky gut syndrome is not any confirm diagnosis as this is not established yet. Sometimes people do often mix this with small intestinal disorders or malabsorption syndrome. This is not any diagnosis as I am specialist in this field but misconception or mixing up things.
