Clear Urine

Dad had a GFR of 19 a few weeks ago but today he passed a urine sample which looked like water. Would this indicate a further decline in kidney function? It coincided with his last anti biotic tablet from a weeks course for UTIs.

He has dementia and I did wonder if he could have got muddled and ran the pot under the tap to rinse it out but he says no it was just what he produced.

    Hi Carol,

    Kidney function is tested by blood not urine samples.  Urine can be different colors for many reasons.  Are you able to speak with your fathers doctors if you are concerned?

      Hi Helen

      Urine test is to see if he has any remaining infection after two lots of AB for UTIs. Dad has a blood test due again in 3 weeks. I spoke to District Nurse again this morning and she tested the "Urine" sample which was just water so thinks Dad's Vascular Dementia has taken another dip. He has been calling me down to him every hour or so in the night fo rthe last 3 nights and has no sense of time.
