My urine sometimes has a strong chemical smell. The first

Resolved Question:

My urine sometimes has a strong chemical smell. The first time I thought it was after drinking elderflower juice. Another time I thought it might the white wine. I have just had it again without anything unusual, though I have just read that asparagus gives an odour - I had some this evening. Urine normal colour. Could it be a liver problem?

Mosy likely it is from what you eat. Many people have an enzyme that make the urine smell bad when the eat asparagus. It happens with other food s too. If you are worried about your liver a simple urine teat for urobilinogen on dip stick would indicated wether or not you may be having a problem with your liver.
