My urine is a neon yellow color and I don't take vitamins. What could cause this and should I be worried? I drink water and eat ice all day long

My urine is a neon yellow color and I don't take vitamins. What could cause this and should I be worried? I drink water and eat ice all day long

Urine color: Normal urine color ranges from very pale yellow/or clear (when it is very dilute) to dark yellow, almost brown when it is extremely concentrated (i.e. You're not drinking enough fluids). The color is affected by certain dyes in foods, a common one is due to the riboflavin vitamin you mentioned. As long as it continues to vary in this range, being mostly yellow, there is nothing to worry about. ...Read more

My urine is yellow but I mostly drink water. Why is this? Can an std or hiv cause this?

Normal, not STD/HIV: Yellow urine is normal, with depth of color due mostly to fluid intake. Dark yellow, orange, or brown can indicate liver disease and orher problems. If otherwise healthy, you can make your urine lighter or darker by the amount of fluids you drink. HIV or STDs don't alter urine color. But since your topic tags show STDs are on your mind, see a doctor or clinic for exam and STD testing. Good luck! ...Read more

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

I have recently cut out soft drinks in an effort to live more healthy. After I did this my urine went dark yellow in the morning. As I drink water in the day it gets clear. Is this normal. No pain and I feel better than when I was on soft drinks.

Drink 2 to 3 liters: It's hard to say why your urine became dark yellow after decreasing soft drinks. Normal urine is a yellow color. Dark yellow urine could indicate not enough fluids. Drinking 2 to 3 liters of fluid daily should keep you hydrated and your urine should get lighter in color indicating good hydration Water is a healthy fluid and your urine becoming lighter during the day is a good sign. ...Read more

I didn't drink water for two days. Could I be severe dehydrated? Could I get kidney failure? My urine wasn't real dark just yellow.

Yes: Yes you can get kidney failure from not drinking for a longtime. But right now I think you are just dehydrated. There is no way for me to ask you why you have not had water in 2 days but if you have decided not to, it is not a good idea and I hope you are taking other liquids. If you are not, and you just don, t feel like, get evaluated. Keep hydrated. ...Read more

Urine has a strong oder it's dark yellow I drink water only have lower back pain right side

Could be UTI: The symptoms you have are consistent with a urinary tract infection. The fact that your back hurts implies that it may have begun to spread into the kidney. If you develop nausea and vomiting, the kidney is certainly involved. Dramatically increase fluids to the point your urine is clear. Drink apple or cranberry juice to acidify the urine. If sx don't improve, or fever, need to see doc. ...Read more

I'm on aviane pills, my urine is yellow-cloudy and has a strong smell in the mornings. I have no pain or itching and I drink water. Is it serious?

Almost definitely no: Although cloudy urine is often associated with infection, the lack of painful urination and the urge to urinate frequently speak strongly against your having an infection. However, if it persists for more than 10-14 days, ask your doctor to order a urinalysis. ...Read more

What cause my urine to smell really badly? I'm not eating asparagus or anything bad. I drink water everyday. Maybe not as much as I'm suppose to.

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

Doc said I had ketonuria and in my blood test I had low potasium I eat normally and drink water so why is that? Doctor said I need urine test again

This is serious: Anyone can have +1 ketones in the urine from missing a meal, but more is worrisome. Please repeat. Low blood potassium reflects illness rather than habits or lifestyle. I am trusting you are not taking any medications that might cause this. A good history and phyiscal exam is next, and likely some checks of hormones and renal concentrating ability / tubular function. ...Read more

I'm passing urine around 8 times per day (past 48 hrs) and normally I only go once or twice and I drink around one glass of water per day. The urine pale yellow-colourless. What are the causes?

I'm passing urine around 8 times per day (past 48 hrs) and normally I only go once or twice and I drink around one glass of water per day. The urine pale yellow-colourless. What are the causes?

You need to call ur: Dr. It seems that you may be having a infection starting. If it gets to feeling that you're having a burning sensation too, besides frequency, it will require possible medications. So you should be drinking several glasses of water a day to flush out the bacteria and keep well hydrated as infection can occur when you are only drinking one glass of water per day. Watch for chills and fever too. ...Read more

I have a big hangover. Everytime I drink water, I vomit it (just yellow liquid). Should I force myself to drink more water/eat even if im vomiting it?

I have a big hangover. Everytime I drink water, I vomit it (just yellow liquid). Should I force myself to drink more water/eat even if im vomiting it?

Slow Down, Hound!: First of all, that hangover is telling you (if you'll listen) that you've done some damage to your brain and liver. It's a message of what happens with excessive drinking over time. As for the water, there's no point if you just vomit it back up. If it's really bad get some Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) at the drug store. Yes, take water or an electrolyte-frequently in small amounts and by that I mean 1-2Tbs every 3-5 min ...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. Maloderous urine can be an indication of an early urinary tract infection, or bacterial/candidal vaginitis. If you have discharge or urinary symptoms, see your doctor. Otherwise, if you don't want your urine to smell like coffee, don't drink coffee. And watch out for asparagus. ...Read more

Today I noticed my urine has a strong ammonia smell. Why? I have only been drink water for past week. I gave up soda. That's only diet change I've made.

URINE ODOR: The smell you describe suggests urine that is concentrated, which may indicate dehydration, infection, kidney stones. This odor can also sometimes be associated w/ high protein foods like meat or eggs. Adequately hydrate yourself, monitor odor over the next several days for resolution and if odor persists, connect w/ me via inbox consult or visit your doctor. ...Read more

Why is my urine yellow? I've been drinking water all this week and since a day ago until now my urine is yellow. I'm fine, nothing's wrong, no pain everywhere

Here are some...: The most common reason to have yellowish urine is having a good kidney function to effectively concentrate your urine so to automatically regulate our need for water. Other than this, few kinds of drugs, veggies, supplements may also alter urine color. So, get urine from properly collection checked so to at least assure no UTI or blood or inflammation. ...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.

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

See a doctor: If you are sure the blood was strictly in the urine then you need to find out why. A urine sample taken at the doctors in a sterile container can be sent to the lab for analysis.
Since you had no pain it is unlikely blood from a kidney stone, or mixed up blood from menstural flow.
It is concerning and drinking water is fine. Please follow up get the urinalysis started at your doctors. ...Read more
