Ask your doctor if you actually need to take a daily vitamin. Those who eat a healthy diet with plenty of veggies and some protein usually don't need a supplement.

Whether urine is dark yellow or pale depends on hydration: is this true?

Whether urine is dark yellow or pale depends on hydration: is this true?

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.

Please explain what it means (medically) that my urine is dark yellow in color?

It usually means: That you need to drink more water. Your kidneys are working fine but your urine should be light and straw colored if you have been drinking enough water. Fluids with caffeine don't count because they dehydrate you. You should have 8 full glasses of water a day!

Why am I always thirsty and my urine is dark yellow and has a strong odor...I'm not diabetic...I am a 28 year old female and I take 100 mg of Zoloft (sertraline) a?

Don't know: Can get some dryness of the mouth from zoloft (sertraline) which might account for thirst but not for urine as you describe-- probably best to have a checkup-- possibly a urine for culture & sensitivity.

I have been diagnosed with Hep A. I have no yellow eyes or dark urine. If I take the Havrix shot, will it get rid of it?

I have been diagnosed with Hep A. I have no yellow eyes or dark urine. If I take the Havrix shot, will it get rid of it?

Misunderstanding?: Havrix is a vaccine to prevent hepatitis A. It does nothing for an infection you already have. If your hepatitis A is confirmed, I don't understand why your doctor has recommended the vaccine. Even without it, after you recover you will be immune to new hep A infections. Confirm the diagnosis and need for Havrix with your doctor.
