Why does my brothers sweat smell of urine?

When my brother sweats he smells as if he has just peed on himself.

If it's a strong ammonia smell and he works out regularly, it's probably a matter of his protein intake. If your body can't handle the amount of protein it takes in, it will excrete the nitrogen, which gives an ammonia smell when you sweat excessively. There are medical conditions like infections or kidney issues that can cause the smell too.

This sounds like it could be a serious condition. If sweat smells of urine, it most likely contains compounds that normally are processed and excreted in the urine. This means that the digestive system or some other metabolic function could be harmed. Your brother should probably consider seeing a doctor.

The reason for sweat smell of urine could be due to excess content of urea in the sweat. It could be of hereditary nature. Excess sweating and improper health hygiene would also cause the smell.

It could be a few reason why your brother smells like urine. Does he sleep with a younger brother or sister that use the bath room in the bed. He could still be using the bath room in the bed. The bed could smell of urine. He might want to see a doctor.
