Re: super yellow urine

making sure drinking lots of water because very yellow pee can be a sign of dehydration.....alot of people tend to have very yellow pee in the morning because of this reason. You head cold could be contributing to this dehydration

Re: super yellow urine

Are you taking vitamins (vitamin B2 and C is known to do that) or iron supplements? That would do it. Sometimes the urine will even smell medicinal/chemical) That will happen if it is very BRIGHT. If it's brown THAT would signify a liver problem. DEEP yellow suggests dehydration.

Re: super yellow urine

True.

Vitamin B2 (or Riboflavin) in vitamin tablets, contains a pigment which is secreted in urine as bright yellow. This shows your body is handling it well.

Re: super yellow urine

When I take B vitamins mine gets bright yellow. I don't think it's harmful - just excess vitamin getting excreted.
