Urine smells like the food i ate, why?

Not uncommon: 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. ...Read more

UTI: These symptoms are classic for a bladder infection or UTI. See a health care provider for evaluation. They will likely order an analysis of the urine (UA) to look for infection and other causes. Bladder infections are generally treated with an antibiotic. Another medication can be given to ease discomfort while the antibiotic works. ...Read more

Fairly normal: 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. ...Read more

Yes: 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. ...Read more

Why does normal urine smells like nutty?

See my remaks: As a Urologist who has had the occasion to smell urine more than a thousand times,I hven't smelled a nutty on..But what is the urine ? It is the byproduct of what we eat and drink. If you eat a lot of garlic ,the urine MAY have a garlic odor.Some people may have a discernible sense of smell,hence can notice /pick-up any variation in color of smell of urine. Nothing to worry about ...Read more

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
