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.
