What Does Your Urine Say About Your Health

You need to understand how normal pee looks like and how it is different under diseased condition. Just a quick peep at your urine is enough. If you don’t know about ‘urine guess game’, then it’s time for some pee education.
Before you flush your urine, look for a few changes that may help you find out the signs of dysfunction. These changes include:
According to Dr. Daniel Shoskes, a urologist at Cleveland Clinic “Many shifts in urine colour can be explained simply by how hydrated your body is at any given moment”. Colour of the urine is due to a pigment called urochrome, which varies from pale yellow to deep amber. The concentration of the urine also depends on the amount of water you are drinking which also affects your urine colour. The temporary changes in urine colours also depend on what you eat, medications you are taking and how hydrated you are. Colour variations in human urine are as follows:
Straw-Coloured To Transparent-Yellow Urine: This is the normal urine colour, which shows that the person is healthy, and his body is well-hydrated.
1 pee
Transparent Urine: When your urine is clear or transparent in colour, it means you are actually drinking too much water.
2 pee
Dark Yellow Urine: Dark yellow coloured urine is still “normal”, but it shows that your body is on the verge of dehydration. You should start sipping water on a regular basis.
3 pee
Honey-Coloured Urine: It demonstrates that it is the time to start water intake.
4 pee
Maple-Syrup-Coloured Urine: This urine type demonstrates severe dehydration or some kind of liver disease symptom.
5 pee
Blue or Green Coloured Urine: These strange urine colours are either the first sign of diseases or due to consuming dyed foods that are not absorbed and make their way out through urine.
