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?

Kidney function: 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. ...Read more

Heard that if one drinks a gallon of water a day thru out the day & their urines clear, it means the fat cells are being washed​ out of the body. True?

Heard that if one drinks a gallon of water a day thru out the day & their urines clear, it means the fat cells are being washed​ out of the body. True?

False: Fat cells, or fat by itself, does not get washed out of the body. Fat is fuel, which is vital to human survival, so the body is very good at holding fat. Our goal is to not eat nor drink excess calories, so not to create more fuel for storage. That said, a person who drinks a gallon of water a day INSTEAD of sweet liquids or calorie-containing liquids, helps her body use fat for fuel (burns fat). ...Read more

Would not drinking enough water cause blood in your urine. Seems like when I start drinking more water, it clears up.

Would not drinking enough water cause blood in your urine. Seems like when I start drinking more water, it clears up.

No: Looks like you have blood in your urine when you drink a lot of water it gets diluted and then you are unable to see the blood in the urine. If you can see blood in urine, I m sure even after drinking a lot of water and dilution you have microscopic blood in your urine which is called microscopic hematuria and is abnormal. It ll need investigation that where blood is coming from. Contact yr physician. ...Read more

Water intoxication: Hi, depends on your kidney function if the kidney is normal it can clear up to 1 lit of fluid per hour, also it depends if your serum Sodium is normal or low, in a situation called SIADH, a hormone is being secreted from Hypothalamus inappropriately which decreases the Sodium level in blood and that could become dangerous.

The past 2 months I have eaten a lot less. Decreased frequency in urination despite drinking 3L of water daily. Urine never light/clear. Normal?

The past 2 months I have eaten a lot less. Decreased frequency in urination despite drinking 3L of water daily. Urine never light/clear. Normal?

Water goes somewhere: 3L a day is a bit much. But if it is that much for weeks/months, then obviously the fluid is not accumulating, and nothing bad is happening. It is a relatively large amount of intake compared to average, but there is no fluid retention occurring, so doesn't seem like there are consequences from it. Cannot say in your particular case. ...Read more

If have these additional symptoms, should consult physician for blood tests to assess renal function if continues. Then sometimes imaging, ultrasound of kidneys. ...Read more

Pain, presurre and discomfort after urinate, the urine is frequent and a lot, very clear just like water. I had a d+c 2 weeks ago, im not bleeding.

Here are some. ..: Clear urine indicates your urine is well diluted, usually resulting from drinking a lot of water; if not, check kidney function. Frequent voiding is often related with clear urine - diluted, but, if in doubt, check out if having UTI and being able to empty bladder or hold the urine; that is easy to do.

I pee every 30 mins. My urine is clear & I drink a proper amount of water but it's spread through out the day. & I don't drink coffee. What is wrong?

Increase urination: For how long? Occurs at night? Checked for UTI? How much do you drink a day? Always be a mix of water /gatorade as too much water dilutes body sodium. There is a rare condition called diabetes insipidus where you make a lot of urine as either due to pituitary damage or kidney damage there is either low levels or no reponse to anti-diuretic hormone.
