In daily life, urine color has become an important reference index for judging the changes in physical health. Many people often sigh when they go to the toilet: "Alas, the urine turns yellow again, and I may have heat in the body recently!"

So what is the signal that urine turns yellow? What health tips can urine give us? Let's see.

What are the possible problems behind yellowed urine?

The color of urine is our most intuitive judgment. Normal urine is light, primarily yellow or orange, by naked eye observation. When the body has diseases, the urine color will change accordingly.
The most common color change of urine is red, and hematuria is the most common. It is mainly seen in urinary system stones, inflammation, injury, and tumors. Severe hematuria can show dark brown urine.

The dark yellow urine is primarily due to a large amount of conjugated bilirubin in the urine, which presents a dark yellow, soybean oil-like appearance. After shaking, the foam in the urine is still yellow, which is common in cholestatic jaundice or hepatocellular jaundice and can be seen in cholangiocarcinoma in severe cases.

In addition, taking some drugs or foods can also make the urine look yellow, such as vitamin B2, rifampicin, furazolidone, etc. In addition, blue urine is more common in diaper blue staining syndrome, and light green urine is more common in Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection. These two conditions are relatively rare in life.

"I want to go to the bathroom as soon as I drink water. What's the matter?"

In life, you will encounter a situation: you want to go to the toilet as soon as you drink water, that is, the so-called "frequent urination." Is this a disease?

Answer: not exactly. When the kidney function is normal, this will happen if you drink too much water or eat food with high water content. At this time, the water metabolism of the kidney reaches a cycle similar to "saturation," so you want to urinate as soon as you drink water.

Under pathological conditions, frequent urination is common in urinary and reproductive system diseases.

Urinary and reproductive tract inflammation, bladder inflammation, prostate hyperplasia, and other problems may result in inflammatory edema or reduced bladder retraction, resulting in reduced bladder volume. Or bladder emptying disorder leads to urinary retention; the adequate volume of the bladder becomes less, and the function of urine storage decreases, resulting in frequent urination.

Lower urinary tract infection can also cause frequent urination, such as cystitis, prostatitis, epididymitis, etc. these diseases are often accompanied by urgency, pain, perineum, lower abdominal pain, and discomfort. It is essential to seek treatment for the urinary tract problems caused by these diseases. Patients who have become chronic inflammation without active treatment can choose herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill to eliminate symptoms and drives.

In addition to the above diseases, diabetes, diabetes insipidus, and kidney concentration dysfunction can also cause frequent urination, which often increases the number of urination. But the amount of urine per time does not decrease or even increase. When you encounter this situation in life, you should pay attention to the primary disease. In addition, mental factors such as anxiety, tension, and fear can also cause frequent urination. Once a similar situation occurs, seek medical attention in time.

Suffocating urine, sitting for a long time, drinking less, and other bad habits will severely impact our urinary health. Among them, suffocating urine is one of the essential reasons for many urinary diseases.

Where's all the suffocating urine?

When the urine stored in the bladder exceeds a specific limit, the nervous system will prompt urination. Still, if you consciously hold it back at this time, it will often cause severe psychological and physiological effects on the human body.

Psychologically, holding urine will produce a tremendous psychological burden. In the long run, it will cause mental enuresis, such as hearing the sound of water and seeing the toilet, and urine will be involuntarily discharged.

Physiologically, the suppressed urine will be stored in the bladder, and the bladder will be expanded. When it reaches the limit of the bladder sphincter, it will gush out, that is, filling urinary incontinence. Hold your urine for a long time, your bladder muscles will be relaxed and weak, and your bladder contractility will be reduced, resulting in dysuria such as waiting for urine and incomplete urine.

Those who hold urine seriously will also make the bacteria and urine in the bladder flow back to the upper urinary tract through the ureter, causing reflux kidney disease, or pyelonephritis.

In the long run, holding urine will damage the renal parenchyma structure and eventually cause renal failure. Studies have shown that holding urine can also increase the risk of bladder cancer.

Therefore, people should develop good living habits, avoid holding up urine, drink more water, and exercise more. And pay attention to the changes in your body, get medical attention in time if you feel unwell, seek professional guidance, and protect your urinary health!
