Unusual smell of urine and frequent urination,

Patient : April of this past year I had a major suicide attempt that effected all of my organs, especially my kidneys, liver, and nervous system. By July I was experiencing extremly high ammonia levels. Since then I have noticed on and off frequent urination (more out put then liquid input) and a sweet smelling urine. However this started again and has remained. I have a significant decrease in appetite, and continued weght loss (80 lbs since August) confusion, memory loss, altered mood, migraines, dizzness, and increased weakness in the extremeties. My blood sugar has tested normal every time and the ammonia levels are back to normal. All have been checked just recently.All tests results (blood work and CT scans) have come back normal, minues a slightly elvated WBC count a few times and decreased and increased lithium levels after a head injury in Januerologinuary. Could this be residual effects of the organ issues from April, or new problems that could be something more?
