'My urine smells like the food I eat?

Fairly normal

Urine
This is not unusual, especially for some foods like asparagus. Increase your water intake, and urine will be less concentrated and smelly. You may still be able to smell certain foods after you've eaten them, though.

Could I have type 1 diabetes? I am 15, and female. Recently I have been urinating about every half an hour. This is wierd, I know, but I smelled my urine because I heard that diabetes can make your urine smell sweet , and my urine smells extremely sweet y

You

You are correct that celiac, Type 1 diabetes and hypothyroidism (Hashimoto's disease) are all autoimmune. The test for diabetes, a blood glucose should have been done with your recent labs. If you urinate more with uncontrolled diabetes you will also drink more. Something else may be going on explaining your urinary frequency. I would expect you to have need to urinate at night also. Check on your last labs, what was your glucose? The ketones could be explained by reduced calorie intake. Correct again!They should have seen glucose in your urine if your sugar was above 180 then too. All the best and good luck on that gluten free diet.

Spices

Lots of sausage brands have some spices inclusions and those may not be processed by our bodies and penetrate in the urine unprocessed causing your urine to smell like that.

Dr. Dan E. Fisher answered:

Why does my urine smell exactly like what I eat or drink? Anything can do it and it happens almost all of the time.

Somewhat true

Urine
Many foods have chemical components which are excreted directly in the urine. Notable with asparagus and less so with other foods. Not true with some foods at all.
