Doctor can evaluate: Urine smelling "bad" needs evaluation. Urine can smell stronger (more ammonia or urea odor) if one isn't drinking enough water. It can smell like ketones during fasting or certain medical problems. Some foods give urine odd aromas, such as after eating asparagus. A primary care doctor should evaluate, if one keeps having such aroma symptoms, to rule out a urine infection and look for other causes.
