Diet: It is very common to have changes in the odor of urine as a result of what you eat - some foods causes very distinct odors! there are specific medical conditions that can cause changes in the odor of urine (for example, diabetics out of control will have an odor of ketones in their urine). I don't know of any medical condition causing the odor of butter in urine.
