I have experienced very bright and/or dark yellow urine after taking vitamins. Some vitamins are more likely to do this than others. I don't know if it's a nutritional thing or a food color thing. I don't know of any medical condition that would cause this if you are not on a vitamin that is doing it.

Answer

I do not know What your diet cosists of. In general yellow color of urine is of no cosequence. Sometimes coffee will cause the color change, Drink water as your only beverage for a few days then check the color.

Answer

An excess of Riboflavin, also known as Vitamin B2 will be excreted in your urine, giving it a bright yellow color.

Bright Yellow Urine I believe that is the B Vitamins. I took Vitamine E pill, also got bright yellow urine.

It can mean one of two things: Dark yellow urine might mean that your urine is concentrated, which means you're dehydrated. Bright yellow urine might just be the result of your daily vitamins.

Both cyanocobalamin (a form of vitamin B12) and vitamin B2 can cause bright yellow urine.

b vitamins can make the urine bright yellow

The B vitamins and carotene taken in higher amounts than your body uses can make urine bright yellow.

No, yellow urine is a sign of dehydration-drink more water. Also, your urine will be bright yellow if you take a vitamin B supplement (and I think some other medications will make it very dark or bright yellow, too).

In the morning when urine is a yellowish color, that signifies that the body has not consumed water during the night. If urine remains yellow throughout the day, that is a sign of dehydration.

The bright yellow color of urine after taking a multivitamin is harmless. It is caused by the excretion of excess vitamin B12. The water soluble vitamins are excreted through the urine when more is consumed than the body can use.

This is usually due to taking B and C vitamins, or a multivitamin. The body can only use a small amount, and the rest is excreted in the urine, giving it a bright yellow color.

no. bright yellow urine means you are dehydrated. which is a common symptom after you get high, that's why before a drug test u want to drink as many fluids as possible to flush through your system. which usually makes it clear. beer tends to work because it flushes your system quickly. -I have never heard of it meaning you are dehydrated, but I know for a fact it is the vitamin b12 leaving your body that causes the urine to be bright yellow.

Yellow is from protien. Bright yellow is OK. Dark yellow means you need to drink more water. Unless you feel bad somehow you sound OK to me. -------------------- If you are taking any vitamins or some medications, it can make your urine bright yellow.

User Avatar

The B2 (riboflavin) is what makes pee yellow. Since B vitamins are not stored in the body (water soluble) any extra is lost in your urine. The bright yellow would happen to anybody taking the same vitamins.

User Avatar

No that is not normal, you should get that checked out.

User Avatar

You need to drink more water. Aim (no irony intended) for a pale straw colour in your urine. Bright yellow is too undiluted and needs dilution by drinking more, Taking vitamin B supplements will also cause urine to be a bright yellow color - so if that is the case, no worries...

User Avatar

Um ... urine is supposed to be yellow. That's the normal color.

User Avatar

I believe its b vitamins but i think a chemical in urine (uric acid) could contribute to that. if you don't drink alot of water your urine will be yellow, urines suppose to be white

User Avatar

Vitamins may make your urine yellow due to the amount of nutrients that were flushed out. When vitamins and minerals are not used, they are flushed out through the urine. However, I find that if I drink more, my urine is no longer bright yellow. Yellow urine is a sign of dehydration, and you may need more fluids to properly absorb your vitamins. Try drinking some more spring water each day.
