50 Shades Of.. Yellow

If you’re easily grossed out by this topic, don’t be. Your body’s waste products can give you a lot of useful information about your health status, whether nutritional or medical. You may not have fancy urine analysis equipment, but you can get a fair idea just by using your eyes. So without further ado, here’s what your urine colour is trying to tell you.

Completely Transparent: You May Be Over-Hydrating

We’ve had it drilled into us that we should be drinking enough water every day…but wait, was that eight glasses or eight gallons? (Hint: it’s not eight gallons.) It is possible to drink too much water and suffer “water poisoning”, where sodium and electrolyte levels become dangerously diluted, albeit extremely rare. Never drink water to the point where you feel uncomfortable.

Pale Yellow: All Is Well

This is the ideal urine colour. It means that you’re well hydrated and that your body is processing nutrients the way it should be.

Darkish Yellow: Consider Drinking Soon

If you notice your urine getting darker, it means you need to replenish your liquid stores soon. Dark yellow means you’re not dehydrated yet, but you could be very soon if you don’t address the problem.

Amber: Drink Now

Your brain might be feeling a little fuzzy and you’re more tired than normal – typical signs of dehydration. Grab a bottle of water the second you can!

Mud Brown: Possible Liver Disease

This is a shade between amber and brown. If you’re noticing brownish tinge, it could simply mean that your dehydration is worsening. But if it’s brown, it could be a sign that your urine is mixing with bile (a liver byproduct), so if rehydrating doesn’t fix the problem, consult your naturopath or GP.

Orange: Food Colouring…or Liver Disease

Think back on the things you’ve eaten in the past 24 hours or so. Were any of them bright orange (e.g. carrot juice or lollies)? Food colouring usually isn’t fully absorbed in the body, so the body eliminates it like any other waste product. If you haven’t eaten anything orange recently or if this happens for several days in a row, see your health professional.

Pink/Red: Food Colouring…or Blood

Again, certain foods can tint your urine, including naturally vibrant fruits and vegetables like beetroot. If this colour lasts a while, it could be blood, and you should definitely contact your naturopath or doctor. Peeing blood is never a good sign for health.

Blue/Green: Food Colouring or Medication

Though some people have a genetic disease that can result in blue or green urine, that’s probably not the case with you – I’m guessing you’d have noticed sooner! That means it’s probably food dye, but if you’ve been put on any new medications recently, they could be responsible as well.

How to Improve Your Hydration

In most cases, abnormal urine colours are a sign that you’re improperly hydrating. Here are a few tips for keeping your body’s water levels where they should be:

Drink more water before and during exercise and if you’re hot Drink alkaline water immediately after waking up to more effectively flush toxin buildup Carry a bottle of water with you on the go Increase your water consumption when you’re sick Drink before you get thirsty
