WHAT THE COLOR OF YOUR URINE SAYS ABOUT YOUR HEALTH.
NO COLOR. TRANSPARENT.
You’re drinking a lot of water.
You may want to cut back.
PALE STRAW COLOR.
You’re normal, healthy and well-hydrated.
Normal. But drink some water soon.
AMBER OR HONEY.
Your body isn’t getting enough water.
Drink Plenty Water.
SYRUP OR BROWN ALE.
You could have liver disease.
Or severe dehydration. Drink water and
see your doctor if it persists.
.PINK TO REDDISH.
Have you eaten beets, blueberries or rhubarb
recently? If not, you may have blood in your
urine. It could be nothing. Or it could be a
sign of kidney disease, tumors, urinary tract
infections, prostate problems or something
else. Maybe even lead or mercury poisoning.
Contact your doctor.
You may not be drinking enough water. Or you may have a liver or bile duct condition. Or it may be food dye. See A Doctor.
BLUE OR GREEN.
Okay, this is different. There is a rare genetic
disease that can turn your urine blue or green.
Also certain bacteria can infect the urinary
tract. But it’s probably a food dye in something
you ate. Or a medication. You won’t die from
it, but see your doctor if it persists.
FOAMING OR FIZZING.
A harmless hydraulic effect, if occasional.
But could indicate excess protein in your
diet or a kidney problem. See a doctor if
foaming happens all the time.
