You or your doctor might well be able to determine a lot about your health just by looking at the color and clarity of your pee. This is why you should teach your children some of the symptoms of urine. Ask them to report any of these changes to you immediately they notice it. You can take them to the hospital for help. However, a urinalysis, or pee test, can reveal a lot more. It would be used by the doctor to diagnose or monitor a variety of health concerns in you or your child.
1. Urine with blood in it
If you notice blood in your urine, tell me and I will call our doctor right away. It could be triggered by something very innocuous, such as strenuous exercise or medication. It could also be a symptom of something more serious, such as bladder cancer, urinary tract infection, kidney illness, an enlarged prostate, and/or a sexually transmitted disease (STD).
2. A Closer Examination
The color of your pee can be altered by certain meals and medications. Beets, for example, turn it reddish or dark brown, asparagus turns it green, and carrots turn it orange. Some antacids and chemotherapy drugs might make your pee turn blue, while others can tint it orange. A strange color can sometimes be a symptom of a health problem. If your pee changes color unexpectedly and you're not sure why, please let me know so that we can see our doctor.
If your pee is black and you're not peeing as frequently as normal, it's possible that you're dehydrated. You may also experience fatigue, nausea, or drowsiness. Always let me know when you have problem urinating. A sample of your urine may be tested by the doctor to check how concentrated it is and the solution to it.
4. A Closer Smell
Foods, vitamins, and medications can all affect the smell of your pee. For some folks, asparagus, for example, has an ammonia-like stench. If you don't drink enough water or you take vitamin B-6 pills, your pee may have a stronger odor. However, various medical disorders can cause it. In case you have another scent in your pee, this may affected by diabetes, urinary infections, kidney problems, and liver failure. If you see a sudden change that doesn't go away, don't hesitate to tell me so that we can consult the doctor together.
5. Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
Your pee may even be red, brownish, or have red specks if you have one of these. It could also be green or hazy with a strong odor. UTIs are caused by bacteria getting into your bladder or urethra, the tube that transports urine out of your body. When we visit the doctor, he can test a quantity of your urine to see if you have one. This is especially if you get a burning sensation whenever you urinate. Antibiotics can be used to treat it if you have it.
