Urine smells like cider!

Hi I am new to this forum and was hoping someone might be able to shed a bit of light on my situation.

I have noticed the last couple of weeks that my urine smells and I can only explain it as smelling like cider. Anyone had this or can tell me a bit more about why my wee smells?

If it smells sweet, that's a classic sign of diabetes. Get your blood sugar checked. Otherwise, I don't know.

Re: Urine smells like cider!

Usually with Diabetes it will smell sweet. Another couple of reasons for it to smell is a urine infection. Certain foods like asparagus or even some vitamins can cause an odor. Have you been eating anything unusual lately or started taking any meds. or vitamin suppliments? Obviously if it keeps up you need to inform your Dr. for some tests.

Keep us posted and good luck..JJ..
