Today we’re going to talk about why your urine may give off a strong ammonia odor when you’re on keto. Ammonia is a byproduct of protein. Normally, when you consume protein, some of it goes to the tissues, some of it is used as fuel, and the rest goes through your urine. If you have liver damage, this cycle gets interrupted, and you start building up too much ammonia which can back up in the blood and can be toxic.There is another condition that will cause an ammonia odor in urine where you can have ammonia in the urine, and it’s not toxic. Acidic urine triggers the production of ammonia. Ammonia is extremely alkaline. On the keto diet, things become more acidic. To balance that out, your body makes more ammonia.If your urine smells like ammonia while on keto, it’s not a bad thing. You don’t have anything to worry about if you don’t have liver damage.
What to do about ammonia odor in urine while on keto:
• You can increase the amount of vegetables you consume to increase your alkaline minerals.
