What is the difference between yellow urine and clearish urine?

Relative dilution: The gradient of colorless -> yellow urine is based, among other factors, on the relative dilution of the excreted waste. Increasing intake of water leads the kidneys to excrete more water for the same amount of excreted waste thereby diluting urine color to be lighter "clearish". Vitamin intake also makes urine yellow. Please note, "clearish", vs cloudy, is a different issue with different causes.

My biilirubin is 3.5 and sgpt is 99. All hepatistis a, b and c are tested negative. No yellowing of urine or uncomfort. What can be problem.?

Can't tell: Bilirubin is breakdown product of red blood cells. May be elevated when many rbc's are being destroyed, when liver does not adequately pick up or process, or when unable to excrete. Numbers like this could represent a variety of conditions. To make sense out of these it is important to know your history, other lab values, and how these values are changing over time.

What causes my urine to be so yellow?

What causes my urine to be so yellow?

Normal variation: The color of one's urine is a reflection of one's state of hydration and how one's body uses water. The more hydrated one is, the clearer the color and the greater the urinary frequency. On the other hand, darker yellow urine is associated with dehydration and less urinary frequency. Vitamin b2 (riboflavin), present in most multivitamins, is what imparts a more colorful yellow/orange urine.
