Do you find that your urine is strange, for example, there are many foam on it, or it is obvious that the color of your urine turns yellow with the naked eye, or even that your urine turns red like blood. "These changes in male urine should not be taken lightly. Your first urination in the morning can reflect a male's health issues laterally.".
Kidney disease: foam lasts for a long time
Experts point out that urine is a metabolic product of the human body, and especially the first dip in urine in the morning can be considered a mirror of health. If you feel a layer of tiny foam floating on the surface of urine for a long time, it may be an early symptom of nephritis or a hint that men have prostatitis. This "small bubble" is caused by a high level of protein in the urine. The earliest change in nephritis is the presence of protein in the urine, and there are often no other symptoms at this time. Without active and effective treatment, further development of nephritis can lead to problems such as renal insufficiency. If a man has prostatitis, he may carry prostate fluid in his urine, which can produce oil droplets on the surface of his urine and also present a "bubble urine" state with many "small bubbles".
If the foam is large or different in size and lasts for a short time, it is because the components contained in the urine make the urine tense. It belongs to a normal foam, without tension.
Liver: Urine like strong tea
If the urine turns yellow like strong tea for a long time, it indicates that there is a problem with the liver. "If the biliary tract inside and outside the liver is blocked by inflammation, tumors, or stones, liver damage, and hepatitis can lead to yellow urine.". If your urine has a long-term yellowing problem, be sure to pay attention to other physical symptoms, such as jaundice, fatigue, upper abdominal discomfort, and pain. If you have any of these symptoms, you should go for a related liver exam.
It's okay to turn yellow once in a while
If you only have one or two episodes of yellow urine, the time is short, and there are no other discomfort, this can be reassuring. Changes in urine color are related to the amount of water a person drinks, how much he sweats, and diet. If you sweat more and drink less, the color of your urine will also deepen. The discoloration of urine caused by the above reasons can be restored in a short time. In addition, at the beginning of waking up, urine accumulated in the kidneys all night, so the urine is darker in color and has a strong odor. After drinking water, the color and smell of your urine will improve the next time.
Infection: Red urine
A red color in urine is likely a symptom of urinary tract infection, such as urethritis and urinary stones. Generally, there are problems with frequent urination, urgency, and pain in urination along with hematuria. It is recommended that you go to the urology department for examination to avoid missing the best opportunity for treatment.
Normal condition: Eating vegetables and fruits with natural pigments such as carrots can make your urine turn red. However, this phenomenon is only temporary, and drinking a few more cups of boiling water will slowly restore the situation.
Hematuria: Must be checked
If there is blood in the urine or it looks like soy sauce, it means there must be an abnormal problem in the body. The causes of hematuria are very complex, with hundreds of diseases that can cause hematuria. Therefore, further examination is necessary to identify symptoms.
If hematuria is accompanied by low back pain or abdominal colic on one side, renal and ureteral stones are most likely to occur; If hematuria is accompanied by dull pain and discomfort in the waist and abdomen, patients with urgency, frequent urination, or painful urination are mostly caused by urinary system infection or tuberculosis; If hematuria is accompanied by epistaxis, gingival bleeding, or skin bleeding, it may be caused by systemic bleeding diseases such as thrombocytopenia, allergic purpura, hemophilia, or even leukemia.
