My sisters syrian has brown sugar smelling urine. Not a "ravenous" appetite, doesn't drink too much water. Not overweight/underweight. No excessive weight gain or loss does he sound diabetic? Also he has this thing where he just stares at nothing and freezes any explanation for that?

Please help

You could get some test strips and check out his urine however he isn't showing any symptoms really so it may just be that the food he has is causing the urine to have a scent to it.
There is some useful info on diabetes here:
