Urine: Bring a specimen with you when you visit your pcp and get examined. Odor of urine can be from what you eat (i.e., asparagus, etc.), from metabolic byproducts (i.e., ketones in diabetics, etc.), from microbes growing in the bladder (uti), or potentially from deteriorating tissue within the urinary tract (such as malignancy, etc.). You should see your doctor and get this evaluated. Good luck.
