    I'm really embarassed to ask this question but googling gave me all sorts of answers, so figured I'd ask here. When I pee, it smells like meat. I wonder why.


    P.S.: Let me preemptively say that I can smell it as I pee.

    Could this have something to do with an excess of iron?

    I would suspect you're in ketosis? My urine always smells funky (above and beyound normal urine smells) when I'm in ketosis.

    maba,


    Just a thought...have you recently changed any of your supplements? I know when I take a multi that has a lot of B vitamins in it, I can smell that.

    CC69: Is that good or bad?


    Musajen: I doubt I'm in ketosis. My carb intake is not that low usually.


    Kuno: I've been taking folic acid (B9) for the last month or so. I'm not sure when I first noticed the smell, but quite likely in the last one month. I was too embarassed to post this question earlier.


    I'm concerned because some of the answers on google said it could be a case of UTI.

    My pee smells funky when I'm in ketosis, which is basically all the time. It smells like something is burning. Must be fat. lol

    maba,


    I'm fairly confident that if it was a UTI, you'd have some other indications, since you seem to be pretty dialed in to what your body is saying ;-)

    Excess iron could be hard on your liver, but you really won't be able to tell if you have it in excess simply by the smell of your urine.

    if you had a UTI you would have quite a painful time trying to pee. by any chance have you eaten any asparagus?

    I forgot to take my supplements last night. My pee doesn't smell like meat today. Wonder if it's the folic acid after all.


    Shastagirl, no I haven't eaten asparagus. Will try skipping the folic acid now and then and see what happens.
