What is it about the Color of Urine?


A pigment called urochrome gives urine its yellow color. That is a variable color from pale yellow to deep amber, which is determined by the concentration of the urine. If you have a darker urine yellow, it is usually a sign that you’re not drinking enough fluid.

However, changes in color can happen when you eat or drink a lot of something.  Like if you eat a lot of beets, you may think that you have blood in your urine.  It is though a normal result of eating a lot of beets, beeturia.  Do not be alarmed.  


Another thing I have noted is that after you take in a lot of food with vitamin B or take a large supplement of that vitamin your urine will turn bright fluorescent yellow.

This is nothing to be alarmed about.

If your urine is very pale, it means that you are either drinking a lot of fluid [not necessarily a bad thing], or it might be a result of taking a diuretic, which forces the body to get rid of excess water.


Urine can turn many of colors, and so unusual colors are not necessarily a cause for alarm.  Some medications can color the urine fluorescent green or blue; eating a lot of carrots can tint it orange, vitamins can brighten the yellow hue.


There is also an inherited disease called porphyria can color urine to a color like port wine.


One doctor says you are seeing blood and your urine is also cloudy, there’s a good chance you’ve picked up an infection.  Blood in the urine maybe should be checked out, but do not panic, it is usually nothing to worry about.  But check it out just in case.
