 So what is urine? it is normal urine with 95% water. The remaining is a rather complicated brew of urea, sodium, chloride, creatinine, potassium and more dissolved ions, along with a combination of other organic plus inorganic compounds.


Colorless urine is a sign of over-drinking of water.  It is not actually dangerous as dehydration, it is lighter in weight.  Drinking too much water can dilute necessary salts and generates a chemical imbalance in our blood.

This color could be a sign for many conditions. Hematuria is a doctor-speak for blood in the urine, and it can be idiopathic, a symptom of a tumor or infection in your urinary tract, or a kidney stone.
