'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.

Urine smells like the food i ate, why?

Not uncommon

Urine
Depending on the food you ate, it's not uncommon that urine odor would reflect this. Your body has to process food into breakdown products so you can let go of the waste through urine and feces. If you've ever eaten asparagus, you would know urine can smell like asparagus. Make sure you drink plenty of fresh water and this aroma should dissipate.

most of the times my urine smells like the food that i just ate,is that normal?

Yes

Catheter
Many foods have compounds that get filtered in the kidneys. Consequently, some of this may end up in the urine causing it to smell like the food. That is usually of no worry. Asparagus is one example.

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?

Why do my urine smells like. vitimins?

Maybe

Urination
If you are taking vitamins, then many of them are water soluble. This means that your kidney will remove any excess that your body doesn't use and then you pee them out. If you are not, and this is new, see your doctor.

my urine smells like protein, is it bad?

Not normal

Urine_color
If you do have excess proteins in your urine you need to get checked. This can be from benign reasons, but you need a urinalysis.

Why does my Urine smells like chicken noodle soup?

SOUP

THE MORE CONCENTRATED THE URINE THE MORE YOU'RE DIET CAN CHANGE THE ODOR. WITHOUT OTHER SYMPTOMS IT IS COMMON AND SAFE FOR IT TO SMELL IF IT IS DARK YELLOW. AIM FOR TINGED YELLOW IF YOU WANT IT TO SMELL LESS
