    Ammonia Smelling Sweat


    Since last winter I have been been doing a ton of cardio and over the last month I have noticed that when I do jog, sprint, or do any type of cardio my sweat smells like ammonia. Has anyone else experienced this ? My one coworker has me sort of freaked out saying my kidneys could be failing.... I feel fine and was actually at the doctor in July where he did blood work and everything was ok.
