In brief: See answer

Changes in the urine -- its color, odor, and consistency -- can provide important clues about the status of your body.
Your urine can reveal what you've been eating, how much you've been drinking, and what diseases you have. Common causes of malodorous urine include dehydration (dark urine), UTI (cloudy urine), food (asparagus), diseases (diabetes), and some medications, vitamins, and supplements.
