My urine has a gotten a very weird smell. Is that normal?


Urine will change smells with the different types of food you eat. For example, garlic or asperagus will make your urine smell strong. Another cause is if you are not drinking enough fluids. Concentrated urine has a stronger smell. Urine ought to be a light yellow color. If it is darker, you need to drink more fluids.

If the smell persists, it can be an indication of an infection. You would need to see a doctor to have tests done on your urine to figure out what is the cause.
