I'm wondering why my urine smells sweet--almost fruity. I've been thirsty, urinating more often, and have been really tired lately. Should I see my doctor?
YES. GO TO YOUR DOCTOR.
It's going to be a simple blood test and they'll ask you to pee in a cup so they can test your body for something called "ketones."

I've lived with the ol' Type 1 diabetes for 11 years, and celiac. I'm also a powerlifter, and a cognitive health and chronic illness coach. This question is common, and in fact that's where the "mellitus" of diabetes mellitus comes from--mellitus signals sweet.YOu can live a great life with diabetes, but you have to learn how to manage it and accept it as a part of your life, too. -Ginger
