Please advise! My daughter smells like Maple Syrup

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I know this may sound weird but my husband & I have noticed for the last 3 days my daughters skin has smelled like maple syrup. The only thing that has changed in the past few days is I started her Nordic Naturals Omega 3's gummies. Her urine output may have decreased some but that is hard to say how much. I took her to the ped today they did urine and blood but nothing so far.
I have heard of Maple Sugar urine disease but as of right the tests show nothing.
Does anyone have any insight????

Neither, I'm really baffled by this.

I think there was a thread about this in Health & Healing a few months ago. Maybe do a search? I would do it, but I can never get it to link right.

I think I may have heard a friend talking about maple syrup urine disease before...have you looked into that?

My DD's urine kind of smells like maple syrup when she gets a bit dehydrated. We freaked the first time because I googled it and came up with maple syrup urine disease, but that wasn't the problem.

The only other thing I know of is fenugreek making you smell like that.

Uncontrolled diabetes can also cause a maple syrup smell. Have you had her blood sugar checked?
