Is clear Urine Good?

Moore says a pale straw color—almost clear, but not quite—is ideal. If your pee is crystal clear, you’re probably drinking too much H20, which can throw off your electrolyte balance in potentially harmful ways. “But if your urine is clear and you’re peeing 20 times a day, you’re drinking water excessively.”

When should I be worried about my urine color?

If you have visible blood in your urine, or if your urine is colored light pink or dark red, see a doctor right away. This can be a sign of a serious health condition and should be diagnosed as soon as possible. Orange urine can also be a symptom of a serious health condition, including kidney and bladder disease.

What does clear urine mean?

In medical terminology, clear urine describes urine that’s absent of any sediment or cloudiness. This colorless urine is sometimes due to drinking an excess of water, while other times it can signal a problem with the kidneys. If your urine is consistently clear or absent of color, you should see a doctor.
