Strong-smelling urine can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'needs attention' to 'life-threatening'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose strong-smelling urine, we could:
|Urinary Tract Infection||96%||Confirm|
|Chronic Fatigue-Fibromyalgia||4%||Ruled out|
|Kidney Disease||0%||Ruled out|
Does your urine usually have a strong odor?
