What the Color of Your Pee Says About Your Health

Pee can appear in a rainbow of colors

If you’ve been eating beets, or maybe blackberries, or even rhubarb don’t panic. Red or pink urine after eating beets is so common it’s even got its own name – beeturia. Some of the compounds responsible for the color of these colorful foods are excreted in the urine after the kidneys do their job. It should clear up by the next day, but if red pee lingers, it could be a sign of a bladder infection or a kidney tumour. If you haven’t recently eaten one of these foods, and especially if you notice any blood clots or other pieces of tissue in your pee, get to your doctor ASAP. Both are extremely rare, but are underdiagnosed, especially by women, since they are more likely to shrug off the incident as a weird period occurrence.
