Normal urine has a yellow color that ranges from dark yellow to light straw color. Urine that is amber-colored indicates dehydration; more fluids need to be taken. Brown urine can mean severe dehydration or liver disease, and should be checked. Urine that is red-tinted can happen after the client eats some foods, such as beets or blueberries. Red urine can also be a sign of kidney disease, urinary tract infections, or prostrate problems. If urine is colorless, it can mean that the client is over-hydrated and should reduce fluid intake.
