I have been taking calcium everyday fro several years. 5mths ago, I started to take a probiotic with it in the morning. I now noticed that I have very sweet smelling urine and maybe it is my imagination, but it almost feels like a sweet smell comes out of my pores. I do have a gaseous stomach, which I read is a side effect of probiotics, but it has seemed to help IBS. Please advise as to the sweet smelling urine.

Try stopping probiotic and see if the sweet smell goes away. Otherwise, get checked for diabetes.
