Customer Question
Lately my urine has...

Lately my urine has been cloudy almost orange in color with a strong ammonia smell. Although I don’t have yellowing of the eyes or skin I have had itchy skin on and off for a few years now as well as forgetting things lately do you think I have liver damage? Also is there anything I can do ?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

I take hydroxyzine when the I Ching happens which is usually once a week but this week I noticed the urine problem I have been forgetting things a lot lately but I figured it was because I run a business and have a lot on my mind but after seeing these symptoms I’m a little worried

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No not really.. I did take diet pills for a few years and thermogenics

There are various causes for cloudy urine;

1) a physiological or harmless cause; an excess of phosphate crystals in the urine from a large meal. This can be tested at home by taking a sample of the urine and drop in a few drops of white vinegar and the urine will clear immediately. This is not to be worried.

2) Infection; can also cause cloudy urine due to the pus. This can be from a urinary tract infection (kidney, bladder, urethra infection or prostate infection in males), or a STD.

3) Cloudiness; can come from protein (albumin) in the urine.

The only way to determine would be to consult with your doctor for a urine test. Following measures would be helpful;

1) Drinking plenty of fluids and water

2) Cranberry extract capsule.

3) Avoiding alcohol drinks and caffeine drinks

You may need a course of antibiotics if the symptoms persist or aggravate.

A microscopic blood cells with the tiny particles can give orange appearance.

This too is likely due to urinary infection.
