Need evaluation: Passing sandy urine may be a sign of kidney stones. Untreated kidney stones can lead to problems but usually not life threatening. An evaluation will sort of the etiology of sandy and cloudy urine.

Water: Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless in case your symptoms are due to crystals in urine.
