Hello doctor,

My son is 5 years old and his urine is hazy and chocolaty in color. It seems heavy as well. Does it have anything to do with his eating habits or what he ate in the morning? He ate eggless chocolate cake in the morning.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Do not go by the color of the urine. Always focus on the symptoms.

Is there any burning sensation while passing urine? Or, increase in the frequency of urine or any lumbar area pain? If yes, then you must go for urine culture.

There might be a relationship of food with the color of urine if it happens once or twice, but if the color of the urine is persistently hazy, then go for labs.

In the meantime, ask him to take plenty of liquids, especially increase water intake.
