Drinking too little water is the number one reason urine starts to smell. This event also makes your urine darker in color. The good news: if you notice dark, smelly pee, it could be that all you have to do is drink more water. Of course, it is best to pay attention to other symptoms of dehydration, such as headaches, fatigue, or muscle stiffness, and try to catch this issue as early as possible, or, better still, drink enough water each day to prevent it in the first place.
