Smelly urine for a number of years, been to doctors, specialists, any ideas?

Edited , 2 users are following.

I'm a male in my 40s. In my late 30s I started to notice my urine had a strong odour. I went to the doctor and had tests for urinary infections etc. I had also had a cytoscopy. I am none the wiser. I can't think what change occurred in that time period although i did move cities.

i now constantly have smelly underwear and the smell lasts in the underwear even when i wash it and I end up with a yellowy stain. Hence I am buying new underwear way more than I should. I can smell myself through my jeans and its getting embarassing as I am sure others can smell it.

Pretty much every forum I read says see your GP but I have and there attitude was live with it.

I'd go on a complete detox if it helped. I am pretty healthy otherwise and drink plenty of fluids.

    I'm assuming your doc tested you for diabetes as well? Is your urine clear and pale? strange smelling urine can be caused by all sorts of food items or supplements. Do you take any medication that isnt from your doctor? body building supplements? eat a lot of onions, cabbage,especially Brussels sprouts, asparagus, etc

    Can you describe the smell? sweet/sour/fishy/musty etc etc?
