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

My 2.5 yrs old daughter urine report. Color - pale yellow, appeatence - turbid, ph- acidic, specific gravity- 1.015, protein-traces, urine glucose-nil?

My 2.5 yrs old daughter urine report. Color - pale yellow, appeatence - turbid, ph- acidic, specific gravity- 1.015, protein-traces, urine glucose-nil?

Nothing stands out: What you describe, except for the turbid appearance (cloudy), is normal. It sounds quite ok, but there must have been a reason for the doctor ordering the test. What were they looking for? Other things to look for are white blood cells, bacteria and red blood cells in the urine. These results could come from someone who does have a urine infection, as well as from someone who is totally normal. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

A few tiny light brown "strings" in urine. No pain and my urine was otherwise healthy looking (pale yellow). Maybe left-over period blood?

Could be: We can not really answer without seeing what you are talking about. If you just finished your period then left over blood is certainly a reasonable guess. If you have symptoms of a bladder infection like burning and frequency then consider seeing a doctor for a urinalysis ...Read more

Hi my urine has changed colour to very pale green and has a funny smell please help?

What you eat: Urine changes color based on what you eat and drink. For example eating asparagus often gives the urine a very strange smell. Drink plenty of water and don't worry about the color. If you have pain when you urinate, fever or if the urine looks cloudy then you may have an infection so see a doctor for a urine test. ...Read more

My urine is pinkish like theres blood and im pale what is happening? 
Im anemic 
weak kidneys

Blood in urine?: The first thing i would do is to go to a urologist and give the doctor a sample of your urine and send off blood for a CBC to check for anemia. If there is blood in your urine, you will need to have an more tests, a renal ultrasound (us) and perhaps an ivp. If there is no pathology found in the us or ivp you will then need to have a cystoscopy to see if your bladder wall is the source of the blood. ...Read more
