Small, white pieces in urine, no urine infraction, notice after I started to take multi vitamin, what could be the cause? Can it come from the vitamin
My nails have recently taken on a yellow tinge to them for two weeks now which is now very noticeable. I am taking a multi vitamin and omega three.
Nail polish?: If you don't smoke (a common cause), the most likely culprit is nail polish. The yellowing is a result of your nails absorbing some of the pigment from the polish. Dark red pigments are most likely to stain your nails, so try a lighter red, or a different color altogether. Yellow nails can also be caused by some medical conditions, so if it's not cigarets or polish, you should consult your doctor. ...Read more

Normal variation: The color of one's urine is a reflection of one's state of hydration and how one's body uses water.

People vary greatly in their ability to recover this filtered glucose. Some even have glucose in the urine when blood sugar is totally normal.

Enough B1 and B2: Vitamins B1 and esp. B2 have a yellow color so bright yellow urine suggests enough B1 and B2. But B3, 5, 6, 12 and folate aren't yellow and you might still have inadequate levels of those. Many have difficulty absorbing B12. Nearly half of people have trouble metabolizing folic acid and need the L-5_MTHF form of folate. Fasting blood homocysteine can indicate if you have enough B6, B12 and folate. ...Read more

No such thing: The yellow color is due to a pigment called urochrome and it is a byproduct of the normal breakdown of hemoglobin. Vitamins all work together in a team to enable oxidation to take place in creating energy and you can't use them to "direct the traffic" as it were. Their only function is to maintain god given health. Urochrome is a normal product of oxidation. ...Read more
