Yea-colored urine: tea-colored urine could be a sign of kidney inflammation-called gleulonephritis. You need to see your doctor immediately about this. It probably has nothing to do with water intake.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Agree with Dr. Nabulsi. Darker yellow urine can be from not enough fluid intake, but tea colored or orange is not and should be checked.
