Im experiencing colored urine. Before they were clear. Despite drinking a lot.

Hi all,

Im writing here because I am worried about a symptom I developed recently. It is about the urine color. My urine was always clear, and now it is always yellowish, changing the color in the wc immediately, sometimes turning into ocra color. This happens always, 24h / 24. One morning when I was less hydrated, it was orange. My urine is never clear.

This is a sudden change that persist since two months. I didnt change my dietary nor drinking habits (although i took a vitamin c supplement). My urine was always clear, now it colors immediately the water in wc making it yellowish/ocra.

Although i drink about 2/2.5 liters of water per day.

My urine is odorous (odour from foods i eat and fishy) but i made a urinalisys and there wasn’t infections. I did have some pain after urinating, but doctor said it is not related to urine color.

I took acidif plus and it relieved completely the pain, but the dark color and the odor are still there.

I brought my urine to test at least 4 times, even when they were orange as I said.

My urine analysis show no abnormalities, concentration is normal and there’s no bilirubin.

My plasma total bilirubin is 1.20 but doctor said that this symptom isnt caused by liver.

Although I drink plenty of water, my urine sometimes seems “dehydrated” something I experienced when I played football under the sun. but now, when I am working at home, this is something it isn't supposed to happen.

it seems that there is more "chrome pigment" in my urine than before.

I guess what is going on.

Thank you in advance for all your advices.

    It could be the Vitamin C you are taking, especially if it is a high dose. Stop taking it and see what happens.

    If your body does not need it it will be automatically excreted
