Every time you pee, you have the chance to learn something about yourself—from how hydrated you are to whether some of your vital organs may be showing signs of dysfunction.
The color of urine can tell you a lot about your body. Here’s a list of urine colors and what they indicate:
1. NO COLOR (TRANSPARENT)
You are drinking a lot of water. You may want to cut back.
2. PALE STRAW COLOR
You are normal, healthy and well-hydrated.
3. DARK YELLOW
Normal. But drink some more water.
4. SYRUP OR BROWN ALE
You could have liver disease or severe dehydration. Drink water and see your doctor if it persists.
5. PINK TO REDDISH
this might simply mean that you’ve consumed red-tinted food. While on the other hand, this can be an indication of blood in your urine, which may indicate kidney issues, internal injury, or cancer.
this might indicate that you have bile in your urine or a liver disorder and this urine is a reason for concern.
7. 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.
There’s no such thing as purple urine.
9. 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.
The urine smell may indicate a health problem
👉Foul smell: The bacteria that cause urinary tract infections (UTIs) can produce a foul smell. Symptoms of a UTI include burning during urination, fever, chills, and back pain. If you have a urinary infection, you will need to be prescribed an antibiotic.
👉Sweet smell: Sweet-smelling urine may be a sign of diabetes or liver disease.
👉Musty smell: Certain metabolic disorders may cause musty-smelling urine as well.
Always consider that consuming some particular foods and drinks, like coffee and asparagus.
For example, can give urine an intense smell, which is totally normal.
Health is Wealth, take care of it.
