Urine or vaginal?: Strong smelling urine usually isn't abnormal, generally due to eating strongly flavored foods. If so, it should improve with diet change and drinking lots of fluids. If it still continues, you might have a urinary tract infection. Also, are you sure the odor isn't vaginal? If so, you could have bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of vaginal bacteria. See your doctor if symptoms continue. Good luck! ...Read more

It is easily treated with a prescription vaginal cream or oral antibiotic. To know for sure, you just need to see your doctor and they can do a vaginal swab to check for clue cells which will confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more

Proctologist: These symptoms suggest a rectal fissure and are best evaluated by a colorectal surgeon or a proctologist. In the meantime apply warm water compresses or take sitz baths and wear white cotton underwear,and apply an antibacterial ointment like neosporin until you are examined. Try to keep your bowel movements soft by taking a stool softener if necessary. ...Read more

Please help docs! is one of the symptoms of age onset diabetes having urine which smells strong and sweet or?

Please help docs! is one of the symptoms of age onset diabetes having urine which smells strong and sweet or?

No.: Diabetes tends to cause urine to be more dilute (clear) due to the glucose in the urine drawing more water in. The symptoms of diabetes are drinking more, urinating more, eating more but losing weight. With adult onset diabetes it can be more gradual and can be associated with obesity. I would check with your doctor if you have not had a check up in awhile. ...Read more

Upper airways leading to cold symptoms[rhinitis] and lower airways leading to cough and wheeze[reactive airways/ asthma]. Ventilate the room/s and and stay out of it till the air is cleared .Seek medical attention if any difficulty with breathing. Maybe next time have someone else cook. ...Read more
