Prevention

What you eat and drink has a great influence onurine composition, that’s why a lot of preventive measures are linked to food and drink habits.

Daily food intake determines the amount of wastes the body will need to eliminate, and total water intake determines how much these wastes will be concentrated in the urine. For example, if you have a rich diet (high in protein, fats and dairy) but low fluid intake, you may have concentrated urine.

the colour of urine can be a good indicator of urine concentration. Normal urine is generally pale yellow, and concentrated urine is dark yellow.
