What causes a strong odour in your urine?

  • Foods containing a smelly sulphur compound, such as asparagus, have been known to alter the odour of urine.
  • Taking a vitamin B-6 supplement can change the smell of your urine.
  • Being dehydrated, when this occurs your urine is very concentrated and often smells of ammonia.
  • Metabolic diseases
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Bladder infection
