Urine odor relates to the volume and concentration of a variety of chemicals excreted by the kidney. Normally, urine does not have a strong odor, but if you are dehydrated and your urine becomes highly concentrated, it can have a strong ammonia smell. Many foods and medications, such as asparagus or vitamins can also affect the odor of urine. Most changes in urine odor are temporary and do not indicate serious illness. However, sometimes the unusual urine odor can be associated with an underlying medical condition. That is why you should talk to your doctor if you are concerned about the odor of your urine.

* Strong ammonia smell means there is not enough fluid or that there is dehydration

* Foul smelling urine refers to bacterial infection of the kidneys or bladder.

* Sweet smelling urine might be caused by the uncontrolled diabetes.
