Athletes: Urine Color and Dehydration




Dr. Michael Swartzon, Primary Care Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Physician with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, explains a urine color chart and says if your urine is syrup or brown ale and it doesn’t change quickly, you need to seek medical attention.

“The dark yellow is not advisable, it is when maybe you feel thirsty, you are ignoring your thirst, and your body is telling you that you are dehydrated and you should take in a couple of glasses of water”.
