Ever wonder why urine looks different? Food can alter its appearance. So can medicine and illness. In general, colorless urine means you drink a lot of water and may want to cut back. Pale straw-colored to transparent yellow urine means you are well hydrated. Dark yellow to amber-colored urine may mean you are dehydrated. It could also indicate liver disease.

See your physician if you have any unusual urine color that persists. Urine that’s occasionally foamy is usually not concerning. If it happens frequently, it could indicate excess protein in your diet or a kidney problem. See a physician. Mind your pee and clues.iStock_000001428197Large
