Very rarely, excessive bile in the urine, from some form of gallbladder or liver problems could do this. Your doctor can do a urinalysis to check it out. ...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?

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
