Check Your Urine Color! It Reveals A Lot About Your Health

Check Your Urine Color! It Reveals A Lot About Your Health

Urine colors can help to ascertain lifestyle and health conditions. The color varies depending on what has been consumed through drinking and eating, or medical diseases. The pigment that makes urine yellow is called ‘urochrome.’ It varies from a pale yellow to amber depending on the concentration. Oral medication can turn urine a fluorescent blue or green. Carrots can come out in orange. Vitamins make pee a brighter yellow. Some berries, beets, or beans are notorious for affecting urine color. A case of dehydration will result in amber urine.

During the day your body loses water through perspiration. While you sleep, the water from your body is lost as well. This is why drinking water is crucial. Begin each day with an intake of water. Drink a glass after you wake up, and before going to bed; if you would not like your sleep disturbed with an urge to urinate, drink a glass two hours before going to bed.

Set a reminder for yourself to drink enough water.

    If your mouth is dry or sticky or you have an overwhelming thirst, you are dehydrated. Chronic dehydration can lead to heartburn, gastritis, headaches, arthritis, weight problems, depression, and premature aging. In the early hours of the morning this is natural, as you have been asleep for eight hours with no water intake; concentrated urine is darker during the mornings.

    Over-consuming water results in transparency, in which case you may want to cut down your water intake. Do not go overboard consuming water. Too much water with reduced sodium can result in hyponatremia – this causes swelling of the brain cells that may lead to seizures, confusion, or even a coma .

    The easiest way to determine your hydration level is simply by watching the color of your urine. There is no substitute for water consumption. However, dehydration cannot be reversed overnight; water intake needs consistency.

    10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

    10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

    Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

    It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically, I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
