Hello: Occassionally when having a bowel movement, I notice a very strong odor of ammonia. It reminds me of the odor at the camp outhouses. I haven't been able to figure any similarities between instances (recent eating habits, activities, etc.). We eat a round diet of meat, veggies and fruits. My bowel movements for the most part are good in regularity and consistency. The only medical condition I've had lately was with high blood pressure. I'm not taking any medication, as the doctor precribed daily exercise rather than medication, and that is helping with the high blood pressure. Is this a sign that there's something else happening with my body?
