Oil In My Urine
I've been taking fish oil for about 6 mos 3 to 4g daily and tappered off now n then. recently i''ve seen oil in my urine n it smells like fiish oil?
Fish Oil: It certainly could be trace amounts of omega -3 in the urine. It doesn't take much to smell "fishy". The benefits of taking fish oil are less clear than they used to be. I would recommend that you check with your doctor to see if fish oil is right for you. If it is right, I would purchase the highest grade, highly purified brand that is either of Icelandic or Norwegian origin. ...Read more

Recently started vaping cbd oil, now have strong smelling urine, found out its an adverse reaction to propylene glycol in it, is it safe for me to keep using it when I am having this reaction? Like can I get sick or an infection if I keep using it?
Quit using it:
Weed and weed products are psychoactive drugs and will mess with your brain more than give you a smelly urine. Just because it may be legal does not mean it is safe.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
