Urine colour often depends on 5 things:

• how much water your drink

• disease conditions, &

• exercise

You should be concerned if the colour of your pee is significantly abnormal.

Clear urine (clear as sweat)

It means you might have:

• Taken excess fluids (over-hydration).

So you need to drink a little less. Although hydration is good, drinking excess water when you are already well-hydrated can make you lose electrolytes from your body.

Light yellow/amber urine

It means you might have:

• Drunk enough water and your body is well-hydrated

This is the normal colour of the pee of most healthy individuals. Continue drinking water at the current amount. No need to increase or decrease.

Dark yellow urine

It means you might have:

• Taken excess B vitamins 

• Been dehydrated e.g. when more than 8 hours have passed since your last drink of water

Drink some water, consider limiting dehydrating foods and drinks, and check the medications you’re talking.
