7 things your urine is trying to tell you about your health. Have you ever seen green or blue urine? By checking the color, you can see whether your body is doing well or crying for help.
As weird as it may sound, every time you go to the bathroom, you have a chance to check up on your health. No, we’re not talking about stepping on the scale or checking your face for breakouts. We’re talking about going number one! By examining the color of your urine, you can see whether your body is doing alright or if you need to go to the doctors.

– If you notice that the color of your urine has suddenly changed to orange, don’t worry just yet. As it turns out, some anti-inflammatory drugs, chemotherapy treatments, and laxatives with senna can cause such a color change.
– Seeing pink or reddish urine usually sends most people into a panic, but it’s not really something to immediately freak out over. It could very well be caused by some foods or medications. If you’ve recently eaten beets, blackberries, or rhubarb, then you probably have nothing to worry about. Another reason could be that certain antibiotics that are used to treat tuberculosis can turn urine kind of reddish.
– Eating some foods, like those that are artificially-dyed or asparagus, can discolor the urine to such an extent that it’s blue or green. If it’s because of this, there’s nothing to worry about, it’ll clear up in a day or two. Plus, medications like Amitriptyline, Indomethacin, and Propofol can cause these types of colors too. However, if none of these reasons seem likely to you, you should be dialing the doctor’s number right now.
– If you notice brown shades in your urine, it could be a sign of severe dehydration. So put down those caffeinated drinks, and get more water into your body! Also, try to recall if you’ve eaten any rhubarb or fava beans lately. If you excluded these foods, and you know that you’re drinking lots water, but the color doesn’t go away, you guessed it: contact your doctor. Brown urine indicates problems with your liver and kidneys.
– Having foamy urine from time to time is normal. It’s usually caused by the speed of urination. If it’s foamy after you’ve just shot that stuff out of you like a jet sprayer, don’t sweat it! But if it keeps coming back, and you notice it more and more often over time, who are you gonna call? The doctor!
– If your urine is transparent, it’s a sign that you’re drinking too much water. Yes, too much is just as bad as too little! Drinking too much water can lead to certain risks, the most important of which is diluting the salts in your body. This can create a problematic chemical imbalance.
– Ideally, your urine should be a pale gold color. If you are lucky enough to have the perfectly-colored pee, it means that you’re not under- or over-hydrated. You drink just as much water as you need. Good for you! If your urine is more concentrated and doesn’t look pale gold, it means that you need a little more water.
