Urine smells like ham

For many months now, my urine has had a strong smokey ham odor. That is the best I can describe it. It occurs in the mornings. I have tried to relate it to food or medications. But I can not find a relationship to anything. I have asked my doctor about it and she did not have an answer. I did not have an infection. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this before? It is very unpleasant and worrisome.
Thank you.

  • Try drinking 1/2 glass of cranberry juice a day for a week and see if it goes away. If it does, then you may have had a mild infection. Some infections do not show up on regular tests. If you want to get more accurate results, then ask your doctor to send your urine to the lab for a culture test.
