Your urine is often used as a baseline for doctors to determine whether you are properly hydrated.

What color is your pee?

You might ask the question a lot. You might never think about it. But the color of your urine can mean something about your health.

When questioning whether you are properly hydrated, doctors use the color of your urine as a baseline to guide them. And a lack of proper hydration can lead to kidney stones and other potential problems.

We interview urologist Robert Strehlow, MD, about what the color of your urine can mean in this Discover Health segment, which originally aired on FOX Carolina.
