Urinary Disorders

Urine problem

11/11/2003

Question:

What does it mean if your urine smells like onions?

Answer:

It could be related to a specific food you are eating, however, it could be due to an infection also. I assume you are not having any problems with urination such as pain, blood or increased frequency. I would suggest you have a simple analysis of your urine to make sure there is not an infection. This can be done in most physicians` offices or hospital laboratories.
