What the Color of Urine Can Say About the Health?

We rarely pay attention to the color of our urine. This is a big mistake because the color and the smell of the urine can tell a lot about our health. Our urine is consisted of water (95%), creatinine, urea, potassium and all are dissolved in both organic and inorganic areas. The common color of the urine is yellow, which is caused by creatinine, urea, potassium and all are dissolved in both organic and inorganic areas.

But, not always the color of the urine is yellow. Find below what other urine colors mean:

  • Clear

Clear, or transparent urine means that the body is creatinine, urea, potassium and all are dissolved in both organic and inorganic areas.

  • Light yellow

This is the color of a healthy person. Light yellow means that the body is hydrated well.

  • Cloudy

This might indicate a bladder infection caused  from the excess mucus or proteins broken down in the body.

  • Medium yellow

Dehydration. Drink more water.

  • Dark yellow

This is a sign of severe dehydration. Drink plenty of fluids, but this color may also mean too much vitamin B.

  • Orange

This indicates that there’s too much bilirubin in the body. Orange urine might also be due to gallstone obstacles in the bile duct too. Liver disease is another cause of orange urine due to urinary tract meds.

  • Pink

Urine can turn pink if you eat too much beets, or if there’re blood drops.

  • Darker pink shade

This color definitely indicates blood in the urine, which may further indicate a bladder infection or even  cancer. Stones can also be the cause.

  • Dark pink

This means too much blood in urine and is really serious. See your doctor ASAP!

  • Brown

Anti-malaria meds chloroquine or the metronidazole antibiotic can color the urine brown. Brown urine can also indicate kidney or liver disease or too much working out. When so, the muscles use the myoglobin as energy and leak to the blood and urine too. If you see this, make a test for the myoglobin and see if this means kidney failure.

  • Green or blue

Foods that contain artificial colors like jell-o can color the urine. Meds like the Uribel that contain methylene blue can also be the cause. Even though it looks scary, it is noth9ing to worry about. Just flush it down the toilet.
