In brief: Urine odor

If urine has strong odor, is darker in color, looks hazy, may have urinary tract infection & may not be drinking enough fluids.
Try drinking 6-8 glasses of water or cranberry juice a day. If urinating is painful or burns, see pcp/gyn to be checked for uti. Some foods (like asparagus) can also give urine strong/strange odor. Have it checked.
