Red Urine Color After Consumption Of Dragon Fruit.?
At night, I like to eat dragon fruit, last week I ate my urine urine color a little red, this morning I ate 1 dragon fruit and in the afternoon I was surprised the color was also red. Why is that? There is no pain at all, but before eating dragon fruit is still normal how come just when I eat, I rarely drink water too. thank you
Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
If your red urine is preceded by a previous consumption of dragon fruit, then this is natural and you don't need to worry. The reason, the dye from dragon fruit can not be digested properly so that it comes out together with urine.
However, if the red urine comes out without a history of consumption of dragon fruit, this is the thing to watch out for because it can lead to abnormalities in the urinary tract, such as:
Urinary stones Kidney inflammation (glomerulonephritis) History of urinary tract injuries Urinary tract infections Malignancy
Try to observe further the color of your urine after 3-4 days after consuming dragon fruit. If the red color is still there even though it has not consumed dragon fruit for a long time, you should consult a general practitioner first for further examination to track the presence or absence of urinary tract disease. If necessary the doctor will refer you to a urinary tract specialist for further tracking.
As for what you should do to maintain urinary tract health:
Avoid the habit of holding urination Consumption of about 2 liters of water per day Avoid the use of pants that are too tight Limit the consumption of foods containing high uric acid levels such as organ meats, belinjo, brain, etc.
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
