Hi doctor,

My urine is yellow in color for the last two months. One week back, I had blood test, urinalysis and LFTs. All the reports were normal. What is the reason for the yellow color of my urine?



Welcome to

High colored urine can be because of various reasons.

Drinking less water in the hot weather can also cause high colored urine.

  • Are you taking any medication? Is there any burning sensation or itching in the area?
  • Please get ultrasound of whole abdomen specifically liver to rule out any liver pancreas related abnormality.
  • Please get complete hemogram and rule out any infection. Kindly attach the reports to guide you more detaily.
  • Are you taking alcohol on regular basis?

Hi doctor,

The microscopic examination result is as follows. RBC nil, pus cells 2-4/HPF, EP cells 1-2/HPF, casts nil, crystals nil, organisms nil. LTF details are as follows: Total bilirubin 0.9 mg/dL up 1.0, SGOT 18 and SGPT 26.



Welcome back to

  • The urine routine and serum bilirubin seems to be within normal limits. However, there are a few pus cells.
  • You must take plenty of fluids. Also, start with Citro-Soda sachet (urine alkalizer) twice daily in a glass of water.
  • Take urine culture and other tests which were prescribed and share the reports.
