Can potassium gluconate, magnesium or invokana cause cloudiness and a popcorn like smell in the urine?

Likely Invokana: since the popcorn like smell is a result of urine full of glucose. I have had other patients complain of "sweet tea" and "just baked bread" smell to their urine, though the latter had a yeast infection. Cloudiness would make it more likely to be infection. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
