You may be dehydrate: If a patient is dehydrated the urine becomes concentrated and odoriferous. The smell that you are aware of is concentrated urine. On the other hand what you eat has an effect if the urine is concentrated such as asparagus or alcohol. Best thing is to drink fluids not alcohol) at least a quart of water a day. That can be gator aid as well. You must inctrease this on a hot day or you are active
