urine odor.

Thanks guys. the responses about yest were very helpful! I have another question.

Does anyone's urine smell like coffee after drinking coffee? or does anyone have a weird odor after taking NAC?

My urine smells pretty bad after I drink coffee or take NAC. The odor is normal otherwise. I read that it could be becuase of kidney infection/disease.

Re: urine odor.

Hi cooty:

I have been noticing lately that my urine smells funny. I do drink coffee in the am. I brought in a specimen today and so far have not heard back. I will let you know what they say. I have been on treatment for lyme for 10 months now and up until now have thought that I dodged the bladder problems, hopefully it is nothing serious.

P.S. I did start taking a different B-complex lately that is in a capsule, but it is a powdered form. I am wondering if that is what is causing this?

Re: urine odor.

Hi Cooty...if it is cloudy you might want to watch yourself...get some cranberry juice or cranberry pills from the health food store...wouldn't hurt for you to take them anyway to avoid any bladder infections...I do think it is normal though for anyone to drink coffee and have that's or even vitamin B'sssssssss....can cause that...I mean that is what the urine is...waste and junk that is being discharged out of us....
If you have blood or it hurts to tinkle then your most likely okay...but really get some cran/apple or just cranberry juice...good to keep your system filtered out.....

Re: urine odor.

I think it is normal for it to smell like coffee after coffee, because coffee has such a strong odor. Just like it is normal for your urine to smell bad after you eat asparagus.

Re: urine odor.

I took NAC for a while but I did not notice any odor - other than normal pee smell

You may want to mention it to your doc - maybe a slight infection somewhere?

Let us know what you find out.

Peace and health to you.

Re: urine odor.

actaully the smell that was caused by NAC is gone. It smelled really really bad when i started taking it but now it's completely gone. Coffee still smells though.
