What the Yuck: My pee is bright green!

Too embarrassed to ask your doctor about sex, body quirks, or the latest celeb health fad? In a regular feature and a new book, "What the Yuck?!," Health magazine medical editor Dr. Roshini Raj tackles your most personal and provocative questions. Send 'em to Dr. Raj at whattheyuck@health.com.

Q: My pee is suddenly bright green, even though I drink tons of water. What’s going on?

Normally, the color of your urine should be between almost clear and dark yellow.

Neon-green pee may look alarming, but it’s usually just a sign that you’re getting too much of certain vitamins - B vitamins, in particular - and that your body is flushing out the excess.

That said, if you notice it regularly, talk to your doc about whether you should cut back on your B intake.

    After I initially commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment. Is there a way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

    Iím amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog thatís both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.

    Next time I read a blog, I hope that it won't disappoint me just as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, however I actually thought you would probably have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something you could fix if you weren't too busy looking for attention.
