Dehydration?: Are you drinking enough fluids, specifically water? It is the kidneys job to remove accumulated acids. For water conservation the kidney can remove these acids in a very concentrated urine, which would then be dark with a strong smell. Drink more free water, at least an extra quart of free water in addition to any other fluids ingested in a day. ...Read more

My urine smells like rotten eggs and it is cloudy, what is the problem? This has been going on for quite sometime now.

I : I cannot diagnose the cause for these symptoms. A rotten egg smell is described as being much like the smell of sulphur. You could have an infection. You could have a diet high in food that contain sulfhur (garlic, curry, onions, meat, eggs, cauliflower, etc.) you could even have a metabolic disorder. Because your urine is also cloudy, i recommend that you talk with your doctor about this. ...Read more

See a doctor: You need to provide a full history and be examined by a doctor, not a nurse who may not be qualified to render diagnoses. This may be recurrent UTI but until know more info it is impossible to diagnose. Prior UTI and underlying illnesses, other symptoms, dietary intake, and a variety of other info will help, along with a urinalysis and perhaps culture. ...Read more

Why is my mom's urine orange and smells really bad like rotten cheese or eggs. She's not talking any medicines and is in no pain.?

Need testing: Dark orange urine with no other symptoms in a patient who is not taking any medication could be a sign of biliary obstruction. Usually it is accompanied with light color stool. The addition of weight loss could be a sign of malignancy in the pancreas or the bile ducts. A urinalysis and a blood test is needed along with other diagnostic imaging to come up with the right diagnosis. ...Read more

Why does my urine smell like rotten eggs?

Maybe sulfites: Foul smelling urine is a sign worth investigating. Urine that smells like rotten eggs may indicate excretion of sulfites in the urine. This may be related to diet as many foods contain sulfites - red wine, juices, molasses, and many prepared foods. Abnormal smelling urine may be due to infection or other causes. See your doctor, who will check your urine and help determine the cause. ...Read more
