No one pays attention what their urine color is. We must be aware that the smell, consistency and color can say a lot about our health. Our urine is made of 95% water, and other components like urea, potassium, dissolved ions , creatinine, and inorganic and organic compounds.
Due to the presence of urobilin yellow is the usual color of the liquid, a waste product that appears due to the breakdown of old red blood cells.
WE GIVE YOU A LIST OF 11 TYPES OF URINE COLORS IN ORDER TO MAKE YOU AWARE OF WHAT EVERY COLOR MEANS:
Consuming enough water is really good for our body in order to keep it hydrated. Colorless urine can be a sign of over hydrations. Do not drink more than 2 liters per day, because water will reduce electrolytes in our body and cause chemical imbalance.
This indicates that you’re well hydrated .
The reasons for cloudy color is the extra mucus, tissues and proteins that are broken down and coalesce in the body . This is sign of a bladder infection.
This is a sign of dehydration and this means that you should increase your water intake immediately.
It is one serious dehydration, If you get the dark yellow urine. You should consume something immediately (water or tea)! Or that also can be a side-effect of excess vitamin B intake.
This color of your urine indicates that there’s too much bilirubin in your body which is a by-product of old red blood cells breakdown. When gallstone is obstructing the bile duct this color may also appear. It indicate liver disease, or appear as a result of taking some urinary tract infections medications.
Having blood in your urine is not good . When urine can turn pink as a result of beet consumption, but having blood in it is also a reason why it may be pink. You should visit your urologist if you experience this, in order to make sure there’s nothing wrong.
This color is caused by bladder infection or cancer. There’s more than a drop of blood. Kidney or bladder stones can be the reason why it’s darker pink. This needs to be resolved sooner rather than later.
This means that there’s too much blood in your urine, and indicates that the bleeding has been left untreated for a while. Dark pink urine can be caused by cancer, so you want to check the symptom at a doctor right away.
If you use anti-malarial chloroquine or the antibiotic metronidazole can turn your urine to brown. Too much exercise or kidney disorder can be responsible for that. Also your bladder can change from exercise. Your muscles use myoglobin for energy, if youare working out, and if you’re exercising frequently, it can leak into your blood stream and get to your urine. If you notice your urine color has changed to brown, you can take a myoglobin test at a doctor as excess myoglobin can result in kidney failure.
Blue or green urine
If you eating a diet rich in foods full of synthetic dyes is the usual cause for blue or green color. Also Uribel can make your urine jello-o-like, because of the content of the drug called methylene blue. In order to dissolve the color make sure to drink a lot of water.
