A member asked:

If i drink bottled water, go to bathroom and the urine is clear like water or slightly yellow, is that a guarantee my kidneys are functioning well?

The only sure way to see if your kidneys are working well is by having a blood test to measure your electrolytes, BUN and creatinine levels. A urine analysis is more helpful to detect protein or blood in your urine. If you really want to know how your kidneys are working, see a physician and get those tests ordered.
