Here Are What Your Urine Color Says About Your Health

Your urine color might disclose a lot about your overall health. Continue reading to find out more about how the color of your pee affects your personality.

CLEAR

This suggests you're drinking more water than is recommended on a daily basis. Although hydration is important, too much water can deplete electrolytes in the body. There's no need to be concerned if your pee is occasionally clear. Reduce your water consumption if the weather is consistently clear.

AMBER TO YELLOWISH

Urine in "normal" conditions ranges in color from light yellow to darker amber. The natural color in your urine becomes gradually diluted when you drink water. Your body produces the pigment urochrome. It destroys hemoglobin, the oxygen-transporting protein in red blood cells. The amount of dilution of this pigment determines the color of your urine. Urine with a high amount of vitamin B can turn neon yellow.

PINK OR RED

If you eat fruits with naturally intense pink or magenta colours, such as beets and blueberries, your urine may appear red or pink. Blood in the urine, on the other hand, can be caused by a number of medical disorders.

Among the conditions are prostate enlargement, kidney stones, and bladder and kidney cancers. Consult a doctor if you notice blood in your urine.

ORANGE

You may be dehydrated if your urine appears orange. If you have orange urine and light-colored feces, it's possible that bile may be getting into your bloodstream due to problems with your bile ducts or liver. Your urine may turn orange if you have onset jaundice.

GREEN OR BLUE

Food coloring can induce blue or green urine. It could also be caused by dyes used in medical examinations on your kidneys and bladder. Blue urine is uncommon and is most likely caused by something you eat.

DARK BROWN

On the whole, dark brown urine indicates dehydration. It could be caused by medicines like metronidazole (Flagyl) and chloroquine (Aralen). Eating too much rhubarb, aloe, or fava beans might create dark brown urine. Natural chemicals can build up in the bloodstream as a result of porphyria. Urine becomes rusty or black. The presence of bile in the urine might also indicate liver illness, which is evidenced by dark brown urine.

CLOUDY

This could be a sign that you have a urinary tract infection. It could also be a sign of certain chronic illnesses, such as kidney disease. In rare cases, cloudy urine might be a sign of dehydration. Pneumaturia is characterized by hazy urine that contains foam or bubbles.

This could be a sign of something more serious, such as Crohn's disease or diverticulitis. Doctors are occasionally unable to pinpoint the source of frothy urine.
