What could cause this??

I asked a question yesterday about my oldest daughters urine smelling like pickle juice. I tried making an appt today and they were booked. I then tried to get a referal to an urgent care and they were unable to. I made an appt for tomorrow, but I am a little more concerned now. Her poop and breath also smell this way now. She hasn't had any pickles and I have no idea what could be going on with her. No fever, acting totally normal, drinking plenty of fluids. The only thing different is she has been asking for milk a lot lately. Anyone know what in the world could be going on? I questioned a uti, but with her poo and breath smelling this way, it doesn't seem like that could be the problem. Help.

  • does it actually smell like pickles or is it like a sweet bread and butter pickle kinda smell? i am asking b/c acidocis (sp?) has a real icky sweet smell kinda like cool-aid or something really sweet smelling and it could be it that has to do with sugar levels being way to high and she could be asking for the milk b/c it helps the stomach feel better. I don't know if that helps or even if thats it but it may be something to look into

  • No idea...but make sure you tell ALL of that to the doctor. If she is wanting milk a lot (I assume cow's milk?) that could be a clue...
    Did she say she is in pain or discomfort of any kind? She may need more or less of any vitamin...
    keep those things in mind.

    Good lucK!

  • Is she eating anything with vinegar in it! I would worry more if the smell was more like ammonia, which can be an issue with the kjdneys but not a vinegar smell. More likely something she ate.

  • kjidneys=kidneys (sp)
