“We’re aware that nobody wants to actively try and smell their wee every time they try to go to the toilet, but if you do happen to notice that your wee is particularly smelly, it’s important you don’t ignore it,” she explained.
“If the smell is strong, foul, and paired with the colour being dark and cloudy, it could signal a urinary tract infection or other problems such as liver disease or metabolic disorders, which are indicated by a change in the odour of your urine.”
Blood in urine can also be a major red flag.
“Blood in urine (pee) is not usually caused by anything serious but you must get it checked out by a GP,” advises the NHS.
