Since how long have you been having smelly urine
Do you have had any other tests
Please correct.Do you have any other symptoms
Have you had any tests for this
Urine smell can occur due to urinary tract infection.In most people urinary tract infection is accompanied by other symptoms like burning sensation on passing urine or pain or increased frequency of urination but in some this infection can be asymptomatic .
Other possible cause is use of certain foods like asparagus
Regular use of high protein diet can also cause the urine to smell as that may cause incraesed amount of ammonia to be secreted through our urine
Certain drugs especially some antibiotics can also cause the urine to smell
You should increase the amount of water you drink as this will dilute the urine and cause it to smell less and also is good for treating urinary tract infection if present
You do need to get your urine tested to rule out infection
You need to get your urine tested to rule out any infection.If an infection is present you may require antibiotics to treat it.
In addition drink lots of water as that will help clear up any infection and also dilute urine so that it becomes less smelly.
Cut down on protein in diet if you take lots of protein
Red meats have a high protein content.Same for eggs and cheese
You may also add daily intake of cranberry juice as that helps in urinary tract infection
Did you have a urine test before that
Antibiotics can fail when the bacteria causing the infection is not killed by the particular antibiotic you may have used.Therefore it is imperative that we get a urine culture and sensitivity test to establish that an infection is present and to know the bacteria causing infection and to know what particular antibiotics are expected to kill the bacteria causing the infection.Without knowing the causative organism it is like shooting in the dark.It may hit the adversary but a high chance that it may not
Thanks and best of luck
