    I don’t really mean this in an ugly way but I see a lot of overweight patients who have poor mobility. Poor mobility means they can’t physically wash themselves properly.

    Well people may think im wrong for answering this question but everyone has a right to an answer! So here it is larger people tend to smell more than others due to the fact that since they are larger they produce more heat which also produces more sweat! Some of the larger ones may not be able to maintain a great state of hygene since some have folds of skin that may not always get soap and a rinse when in the shower! So basicly the larger state produces more heat which mean more sweat and not always being able to reach every spot on their body as well depending upon what people eat the smell can seep out thru their pores for example true italin people eat lots of garlic so they smell more like garlic from eating large quanities and it seeping thru their pores! If any of that makes sense than I guess I helped and hope it didnt come across as rude just semi-educational and that it answered your question!
