Health: What your pee is telling you

(yeah, but who smells their urine?)

anybody who has eaten asparagus knows that sometimes you cant help but smell your pee.

And this is on CAF because …?

I suppose it’s here because it’s part of the news.

Sometimes it’s good to know things. Keep an eye on people in our care.

If your urine has a fruity odor, it may be a sign of diabetes.

A sharp smell is a symptom of kidney stones.

I was wondering the same thing. This is now a medical site. :wink:

Well, a little knowledge can go a long way in maintaining a healthy body as it is the temple of your soul. In my own case of doing some research I found that 1 out of 7 people can have kidney problems without even knowing it. My own cousin died of kidney cancer at the age of 54, just 2 weeks after her diagnosis. So I wont smite the poster who probably had the best intentions in passing along a little information for the benefit of others. Peace.

It’s only about half the people, not everyone. Neither my husband nor I are affected & we eat a lot when it’s in season. :slight_smile:

The article missed one on color - a strong yellow can be caused by B complex supplements.

Now that all the medical experts on the forum have weighed in, can we move on to other matters? :slight_smile:

Or your urinologist just examined a cup of apple juice instead of “your urine”. :whistle:
