Dr. Simon Kimm answered:

Urine odor because of bathing in vinegar?

Unlikely.

Bladder_infection
Urine is produced in the kidneys, travels down to the bladder in one direction, then out the urethra. Certain foods or medications that are ingested can impart odor to the urine, and a bladder infection can cause foul smelling urine, but bathing in a fluid will not enter the urinary system.

Blood sugar goes down while bathing, why?

Need more info

Blood
Are you diabetic?, do you take meds that can cause low sugars? Have you tested your sugar when you think it is low? What are your symptoms? If you do not have diabetes but feel symptoms that seem like your sugar is low, it is more likely to be a drop in blood pressure. When bathing in warm water, your veins dilate and can cause BP to drop, making people feel lightheaded, faint.

Is it unsafe to sunbath in a bathing suit?

Tiny risk

There is no issue with the bathing suit ( although the sun might bleach the color of the suit). Sun exposure produces a tan, considered cosmetically desirable. But it increases the risk of skin cancer later in life. The desire to appear tanned has to be balanced with this risk. The suit makes no difference although it protects the covered parts of the body.
