I have the same problem another viewer asked regarding strong nutty sweet smelling urine. It is so strong that the whole bathroom smells after I urinate. I drink a ton of water each day so it's not that. I don't have any other symptoms other than really strong smell. What could it be?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Strong fruity odor in urine is generally due to uncontrolled diabetes. Urinary bladder infection and kidney infections do produce strong smelling urine. Another reason is dehydration but since you drink water this is ruled out. Strong ammonia smell is due to protein breakdown.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your doctor regarding this. You will need to test for diabetes and urinary infection. Hope this helps. Take care!
