We have been painting ceilings for two days and redoing a house. NO medication. This has been going on for about a couple weeks and is not all the time. I have been drinking alot of tea not sure. It is not completely orange just a look of orange.

Hello,

 

This can be just due to dehydration. Vitamins and Beets, blackberries and mom's rhubarb pie can also turn the urine in orange. Please see this resource for change in color or urine;

You can increase the water intake, especially before you sleep. If this does not improve the color, a urine examination of early morning void would be prudent.

 

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

Thank you so much.. I am always thirsty before I go to bed I have high blood pressure which may not help sometimes in the middle of the night I need a drink. Do you think that could be my problem. It is not in the whole stool just in the bottom. I have noticed once I get up in the mornings and start drinking fluids it does stop is that normal.

Hello,

 

You are most welcome.

 

Yes, this is normal and it is likely due to the dehydration. A concentrated urine always has some deep amber color. Just increasing the water intake round the clock should resolve this problem.

 

It is pleasure and privilege assisting you.
