For about two months I have noticed that my stool smell increasingly sweet. It is very strange, but that's the only way I can describe it to you. Anyone has suggestions about what this could be and what should I do?

Are you, or could you be, diabetic? Diabetic ketoacidosis (a build up of ketones and acid in the blood) could be very serious and can cause a fruity or sweet chemical-like odor to stools. I think it's more common in type 1 diabetes.
Have you had any changes to your diet recently? Any new medications? Any colds/flu?
