Question: My urine doesn't smell like urine!
|MomOf4 - Fri Jun 02, 2006 9:48 pm||
When I go pee I notice that my pee is very strong smelling. The smell isnt unbearable. It doesnt even smell like urine. It is kinda like food or something.......like a potent protein smell or something that I cant quite explain. Any suggestions? I will take all suggestions or guesses that anyone has please. Thank you from Pennsylvania, and I am a female age 34.

An odd urine odor may have many possibilities. For example, inadequate water intake will make the urine more concentrated, urinary tract infections, (typically other symptoms are present) frequency/urgency/burning, the presence of protein in the urine, etc. I would suggest that you notify your physician and have a urinalysis to identify if there is an underlying infection, protein, etc.
