Question particles in urine

I drink a lot of water and my urine is relatively light in color and relatively clear. I noticed white particles floating in it and was wondering if this is normal or if I should get it checked out....

Do you have any pain, discomfort, etc. associated with it?

No, nothing like that. I heard that we pass fat with our urine. Is that true and would it come in solid form like that? The largest particle is probably a little larger than the head of a pin.

Lisa I totally understand why your concerned. I get that all of the time! Of course, I used to think it was because of my frequent UTI's because I was told that it is the residue of a Cystisis. But now, I haven't had an infection in 4 months and I still get that. My urologist told me it was absolutely nothing to worry about...though I still can't tell you what causes it....lol.

Thanx bluegirlie!
I guess I won't be concerned about it! I will just keep my eyes open for answers....

Hi Lisa, I get that also. I noticed it a few times and wondered what the heck it was. I have been having a low grade fever with low backache and my side hurting though. Becky

Hi Lisa:

I would not worry about it since you have no pain and discomfort associated with it.
