bright red urine?
Sorry for a gross topic, but I'm wondering if this is a common occurrence with primal eaters? I did a quick search but did not find anything exactly like what I'm experiencing.
My urine is bright red. So red that it looks like blood. I have been strictly paleo since May (no grains, no beans, no dairy, no sugar, etc). And to answer the obvious, I've not had anything even remotely red to eat recently.
I happened to have urinalysis sticks in the house, and according to those, the Specific Gravity, Protein, Bilirubin, Blood, Nitrites, and Leukocytes are all off the charts high. Ketones were detectable but in the medium-low range.
I'm sort of freaking out because I have never in my life had urine that color. I'm wondering if it could be a UTI, but I really don't want to spend my Sunday in urgent care. Thoughts?
