    Good afternoon. I am doing fine and hope your week has begun well. Has it always been this or it changed recently? If it changed when? The color of urine ranges from straw color to light yellowish. Depending on your water intake, it can be darker or lighter. You should drink at least 2L if water everyday. For the odor, has it always been this or it changed recently? If yes, when? Are you on any medication? Do you have any finished systemic condition like Diabetes? I cannot specifically tell you if and what the problem is but answers to the above may point me to advising you on what to do next. Looking forward to your reply. Cheers.

    it all changed, it was never like that. I think I noticed this like couple of years ago and didn't think it was something serious as I feel fine and rarely ever get sick. I am not on any medication, I took some anti malaria meds way back when I first noticed the change in color but I didn't take it serious because I felt it would go away with time. I feel no pains whatsoever but I am just worried about this issue. and I have never been treated for diabetes, my mom's got it but dad doesn't. Maybe I have not done any tests related to diabetes but I am not sure about that because I have never been treated for that as I rarely get sick.

    Okay. There's really nothing to worry about. But I will advise you drink lot of water everyday at least 2L or more. To be sure, you can visit a doctor to order a test of your urine (Urinalysis), he will further examine you and determine if you will need further evaluation/test like E/U/Cr. This will basically check the function of your kidneys. Hope you can see a doctor soon and have this behind you. Cheers.

    okay, thank you! I have been advised to take water which I have done maybe not enough though.

    Continue taking enough water as advised. And then find time to see a doctor as I directed just to rule out any systemic issues. Wish you the best. Nice week.
