I'm on pyridium for a uti I know it says it will turn your urine orange but when I went this morning it was more like dark red like blood is this norm?

Pryidium: I'm on pyridium for a uti I know it says it will turn your urine orange but when I went this morning it was more like dark red like blood is this norm? ANS: the more concentrated your urine is the more red/orange it will be. I would take picture of it and send to your team and see what they see. Eating beets or drinking beet juice can also give red urine that looks like blood but is beeturia.

I have a uti and im taking meds that turn my urine orange, I just took an at home pregnancy test. Its negative, do you think my result was affected?

I have a uti and im taking meds that turn my urine orange, I just took an at home pregnancy test. Its negative, do you think my result was affected?

Pyridium (phenazopyridine): The reason pyridium (phenazopyridine) can make urinalysis or pregnancy tests difficult to read is because the orange color will dye the dipstick or the viewing window on the test. If you could see the test result clearly in the window and it was unambiguously negative, then the pyridium (phenazopyridine) did not affect the test, and the reliability will be the same as always for the test you used.

Can red Salsa turn your urine orange? It went straight through me and I had diarrhea, it had an odd smell. Stool was tinged orange and red.

Can red Salsa turn your urine orange? It went straight through me and I had diarrhea, it had an odd smell. Stool was tinged orange and red.

Probably: I definitely wouldn't put it past salsa to turn your excrements orange and red. Has this happened to you before? Was it a new kind of salsa for you? I'd say if it stops soon and you're not having other symptoms like burning when you urinate or obvious blood then it should get out of your system within a couple days and you'll be fine. If you are having other symptoms, maybe get checked out.

What does orange urine mean? Havnt eaten in 32 hours though

Dehydration possible: You mention you haven't eaten in 32 hours. Does that include not drinking fluids for the same period of time? If that is the case it's quite likely concentrated urine and you need to drink water. It's also a good idea to eat healthy foods.

I am having dark reddish orange urine occassionaly don't eat any kinds of foods that would cause this.

See a doctor: The orange red color of the urine may indicate it is very concentrated, but it may also signal the presence of blood and/ or bile pigment. Either way, a doctor visit is in order, as the appearance is not normal and needs evaluation.
