Urine = hydration: The less water is in your body, the less your kidneys are willing to allow to go to waste. If urine is darker, it usually means the body is need of more water. Drinking enough to keep the toilet water very pale after urinating is good advice for most people. Those with heart or kidney failure may need more individual instructions from their doctors. ...Read more

Can I know based on my urine color how hydrated I am?

Can I know based on my urine color how hydrated I am?

Yes and no.: In general, if you are well hydrated, your urine will become more dilute as your body eliminates surplus water. Urine can appear clear and colorless. 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

Why is it that I urinate often when its cold I'm not diabetic my urine color is normal it doesn't have a strong smell or anything?

Vasoconstriction: Blood vessels constrict when exposed to cold temperature, and this shunts blood into the circulatory system, causing more filtration by the kidneys and therefore increased urine output. It is a normal physiological response and doesn't reflect a disease necessarily. ...Read more

Sir, My urine color is always dark yellowish while I get up in the morning even though I drink sufficient water. Is it bad symptom of health.?

Probably not: Because you are not drinking water while you sleep the kidneys concentrate the urine. It is normal for the urine color to be darker yellow in the morning. As you wake up and start drinking water the kidneys do not have to conserve so much water and the urine becomes lighter yellow. ...Read more

After urination, I feel that bladder is not empty so, I press bladder and small urine drops comes out. Urine color doesn't matter No pain no sensation.

Need testing: At age 22 with your complaint you should have residual urine checked. This is to see how much urine is retained (if any) after urination. This can be done either by ultrasound or by catheter. If there is significant residual by ultrasound, urethral stricture and hypotonic (weak bladder contraction) bladder should be ruled out. Seeing a urologist would be helpful. Good luck. ...Read more

Today I injected 800 mcg of b12, my urine color was a little bit darker than before and my kidney hurted me is it normal or should I stop taking b12?

Vitamin B 12: There is seldom a need for anyone with a normal diet in the usa or canada to need supplemental vitamins of any kind.
