4 Urine Colours And What They Say About Your Heath

Urine is your body’s liquid waste. It is mostly comprised of water but also contains salt and chemicals (urea and uric acid). In most situations, the color depends on how diluted the urochrome pigment is. This pigment is made when it breaks down hemoglobin.

The color is not the only telling feature. It is also vital to give them attention to changes in consistency and frequency.

Some of the urine colors and what they say about your health include

1. Bright yellow urine

Bright yellow urine is harmless and is just a sign that your consumption of vitamins is higher than your body needs. You may want to check with your doctor on what vitamins your body does not need as much of so you can cut back.

2. Orange urine

Orange urine may be an indication that you are dehydrated and need to take water. It could also mean you could be a victim of a liver or bile duct condition. 

3. Red and pink urine

Red or pink urine can range in diverse colors. This may mean you have blood in your urine (hematuria) or it could be a kidney disease sign, urinary tracts infection, tumors, or a prostate issue. This could also be triggered by recently eating blueberries, beets, or rhubarb, or if you recently involve yourself in strenuous activities.

4. Brown urine

Brown color urine could mean you have chronic dehydration or a liver condition. If you have melanoma skin cancer, your body may be adding skin pigment in circulation that’s winding up in the liquid waste.
