Cloudy urine: causes cloudy urine with a strong odor

  1. Cloudy urine has several causes. Cloudy urine can be harmless and is caused by too little drinking, but cloudy urine can also indicate an underlying condition. Then cloudy urine is accompanied by other symptoms. Some causes of cloudy urine are fluid loss, urinary tract infection or cystitis (often in a woman, sometimes in a man or child), inflammation of the prostate (in a man) or kidney stones. A urinary tract infection often produces cloudy urine with flakes. This is due to the presence of pus in the form of whitish or white flakes or pieces (pyuria). Cloudy urine can also occur during pregnancy. Sometimes this is because you drink too little or have a changed diet, but there may also be a bladder infection. In any case, it is wise to discuss this with your midwife or doctor. Not drinking enough water leads to dehydration and this can also lead to cloudy urine. This problem can be solved by drinking more.
