Revealed: What urine colour says about Human health,


A GP has revealed what people's urine colour says about their health.According to London-based Dr Luke Powles from Bupa Health Clinics, urine colour indicates people's hydration levels, with dark yellow colors suggesting the need for an instant glass of water. 

Reds and even green shades may be a sign of a more serious health problem, he adds.Dr Powles stresses most people require between 1.5 and two litres of water a day, and should avoid dehydrating, sugary drinks like soda and alcohol.


  • Urine colour indicates hydration levels and should be a pale, straw-yellow hue
  • Darker reds and even shades of green suggest a more serious health concern
  • People should drink 1.5-2 litres of water a day and avoid dehydrating beverages
  • Urine can change colour due to certain foods, such as beetroot or asparagus
  • Darker shades may also occur due to complications of certain medication

Colourless urine suggests someone is drinking too much water. A pale-straw hue is ideal for optimal hydration. Darker yellows suggest the need to drink water as soon as possible. Red shades may be a sign of blood, while green urine may be due to certain medications
