Dehydration Urine Color

Normal urine color ranges from pale yellow to deep amber, depending on how much water one drinks.

 

If someone is dehydrated, the color of their urine tends to be dark. The darker the urine is, the more severe the dehydration is. If this happens, it might mean you need more fluids.

 

 

Fluids dilute the yellow pigments in urine, so the more you drink, the clearer your urine looks. When you drink less, the color becomes more concentrated. Severe dehydration can produce urine the color of amber.
