It is mostly always pale. Nearly always clear. Just a little yellower without fluid intake. In the morning it's completely yellow though.
Frequency and Amount is somewhat effected by my water intake as well. Sometimes if I drink a lot of water, it passes through me every 20 minutes, sometimes it stays in there longer.
I'm really struggling to retain water in my body. Water practically goes right through me. I try to drink at least 2 quarts a day but I can feel how dehydrated I am in the morning. My mouth is dry and sometimes my eyes too.
Oh and I hope you get through with your Kidney failure. If anyone has anymore help please post because I need to know how to deal with this until I can go to the doctor's next month.
