Question what does bright yellow urine indicate?



Hi all again

May seem a daft question but I've noticed my urine is very bright yellow most of the time these days. That wouldn't bother me except I experimented by leaving my loo paper to dry one day and noted that it actually stains the loo paper, its so pigmented.
I have no other symptoms, I feel fine in general and am fairly fit for my age,(56), teaching Aerobics, Step and Pilates here in Greece to the other boaties!

I eat the typical Med diet with the odd junk meal thrown in so there's nothing suddenly added to my diet that may cause the colouration. I don't eat or drink to excess although a couple of small beers makes the colour go back to more normal looking, funnily enough.

So...... anyone help me on this, I must go check at the Doc's but was just interested if you know what may be causing it
Many thanks folks
Greko

Re: what does bright yellow urine indicate?

It can mean that you're dehydrated and need to drink more water.

If you take a B vitamin or eat foods high in B vitamins, that can also turn your urine bright yellow (though it is not harmful to you; most excess B vitamins are excreted in the urine).
