Why should I drink water when my urine is yellow?

Why should I drink water when my urine is yellow?

Hydration status.: In general, if you are well hydrated, your urine will become more dilute as your body eliminates surplus water, appearing less yellow. If you ingest foods or vitamins that color the urine, urine appearance is no longer a good gauge of hydration status. The importance of 'staying hydrated' is likely somewhat overstated, so be careful when consuming large volumes of free water. ...Read more

Is it okay to drink water if my urine is clear? My mouth feels a little dry, but I don't want my sodium levels to drop.

Is it okay to drink water if my urine is clear? My mouth feels a little dry, but I don't want my sodium levels to drop.

Okay to drink: It's unlikely under normal circumstances to drop your sodium levels. We see this in folks who are sweating a lot, vomiting, or having diarrhea because they lose sodium this way. We also see this in folks who have diabetes insipidous, in which case they will pee a lot. If you are worried, you could always get a urine test at your doctor's office. Be well. ...Read more

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

Drink ton of water but urine still dark. I take folate (folic acid) with B12 twice a day. That the cause? I also eat beets, but urine is more orange than pink.

Drink ton of water but urine still dark. I take folate (folic acid) with B12 twice a day. That the cause? I also eat beets, but urine is more orange than pink.

See below: Both B12 and beets may cause colored urine. There is no need to take B12 daily. Liver stores about a year's worth of B12. You may try stopping intake of both B 12 and beets for a week to see if your urine is colorless then.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

It: It sounds like the person in question would benefit from a urinalysis. This need to be done in a doctor's office. Things like ketones, protein, glucose, white blood cells, etc. Are measured.
Often times a chemical odor or fruity odor can indicate ketosis which can be caused by diabetes or a very low carb diet. However, it is very diffucult to say without an evaluation.
Good luck. ...Read more

My urine is highly concentrated and has a very strong smell to it what should I do. I drink water everyday tho and it wasn't alway like that?

Let me help you: Urochrome. That color normally varies from pale yellow to deep amber, depending on the concentration of the urine. Darker urine is usually a sign that you're not drinking enough fluid.
Try to drink a lot of fluids and see if improve, if did not go and have urinalysis to see if you have any problems.
Good luck. ...Read more

Many factors: Urine odor can result from many things. Dehydration can lead to a concentrated, malodorous urine. However, it is important to note that infection can also cause an odor and to get urine tested to ensure that this is not the case. Certain medical diseases, such as diabetes, can also affect urine composition and result in an odor as well. Medications may do this also. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Urine has a very strong smell. It smells like a mixture or coffee and just a bad odor. I drink coffee regularly but I also drink water. What can I do?

Strong brew: Hi NikitaM, it is not uncommon to smell coffe in your urine. Its the other smell that could be concerning.
