    Is it possible to diagnose anything from the look and smell of your urine? Mine is always amber regardless of how much I drink, it smells of ammonia and its foamy (foam which doesn't disappear even after several hours). I have a lot of the symptoms from the EMF faq on dehydration. I would be interested in hearing if anyone has experienced the same and how they got over it.
