Default My pee smells like cereal

Yep, for the past couple of days my pee has smelled exactly like that cereal Honey Smacks. Why?

I really don't want to know why you are smelling your own urine and please don't taste it, I don't want to lock another thread on the subject!

I take Centrum vitamins every day. The first pee of the day is usually a neon-greenish color. Almost like gatorade. Same smell though.

You're saying it actually smelled like cereal or just had a weird smell in general?

High sugar and/or diabetes? Wouldn't hurt to go to a doc and have a urinalysis test run.

Sugar Smacks does make your pee smell. I think it has to do with the wheat--or some type of amino acid?

similar to asparagus.

Pee smelling like cereal is much better than the usual smells of urine.

I won't lie, sometimes I hesitate to flush because the smell is actually pretty pleasant.

Haven't had cereal in months. I ate a bag of those Quaker mini-rice cakes about a month ago. That's it.

I do eat Subway 2-3 times a week. But I've been doing that for almost a year now and this has just recently started.
