sulphure smelling urine
Hi
For a few weeks now my urine has had a very strong sulphure smell. It is clear, no pain, no burning. What could be the cause? Many thanks

It is possible that you have normal metabolietes in your urine, which is concentrated because of an enzyme deficiency or dehydration. I suggest that you drink more water (at least 2 liters of clear fluids per day) to prevent dehydration. If this does not help, keep a diary of what you eat to determine if it is a certain food that causes the sulfur smell.

Regards
