Need doctor's help! Will not drinking water cause fishy smelling urine?

Why need help?

Urine
Urine will be more concentrated & thus have stronger odor if total fluid intake is less. Water is best beverage to dilute urine & thus make less smelly, however tea or soup for instance can also supply sufficient fluid.

Fishy urine with diabetes?

May be vaginal

Diabetes
There is a type of bacterial overgrowth called bacterial vaginosis which has a distinct fishy odor. Maybe that's what you are noticing when you urinate. It has to be diagnosed with a vaginal test and can be treated with anitbiotics. It can occur more easily when the acidity level of the vaginal fluids change, which could be influenced by your blood sugar.

Why is it everytime I eat fish my urine smells fishy?

Urine odor

Urine
A fishy odor to the urine is usually actually from the vagina due to infection, but if this only occurs when you eat fish, then is related to some chemical from the fish. Have you ever eaten asparagus and then smelled your urine?
