Did You Know?/Cloudy Pee…Health Information

Cloudy Pee Is Something You Definitely Don’t Want To Ignore

1. You’re not drinking enough water.
Dehydration is a common culprit for cloudy pee, says Ayoub-but drinking more Diet Coke or iced coffee isn’t necessarily going to help you out. You need good old fashioned H20, she says.

That’s because any kind of caffeinated beverage can make dehydration worse. “When we don’t consume enough water, urine becomes more concentrated and crystallized,” says Ayoub. “This will cause irritation in the bladder and can lead to cloudy urine.” It’s recommended that the average adult drink about 70 ounces a day (barring any fluid restrictions for medical reasons, such as heart and kidney diseases), she says.
2. You have a urinary tract infection.
Yes, every woman’s favorite thing-a UTI-can definitely cause your pee to look a bit cloudy. That’s because UTIs happen when bacteria infects any part of the urinary system (your kidneys, bladder, and urethra), but UTIs typically only infect your bladder or urethra, and can be caused by dehydration, constipation, or just not emptying your bladder all the way, says Ayoub.
That bacteria is what makes your pee look opaque: “Urine will sediment, stagnate, and become a milieu for bacteria,” says Ayoub. A UTI can be treated with a round of antibiotics to crush the infection, and it’s definitely a “the-sooner-the-better” type of situation.
3. You have something called vaginitis.
Vaginitis is basically inflammation of the vagina, and it can also bring about murky urine along with abnormal vaginal discharge and an unpleasant odor, plus itching, and possibly even pain during sex, says Ayoub.
Vaginitis can also develop as a result of an allergic reaction to certain irritants and chemicals in personal care products like soaps or perfumed feminine products. If you think you might have vaginitis, see a doc-they’ll likely prescribe you an antibiotic or antifungal medication and things should clear up in a week or two
4. You have a sexually transmitted infection.
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) like gonorrhea and chlamydia, cause cloudy urine, says Ayoub-especially in the early stages of the infection. “These infections often result in discharge which taints the urine,” she says.
But cloudy urine can show up in more chronic stages of the infections, too: “In the chronic setting, they also cause scar tissue in the urethra which prevents the bladder from emptying and therefore results in cloudy urine,” says Ayoub.
The tricky thing is, you if you’re not paying close attention to your urine and discharge, you might miss an STI-aside from a change in appearance or amount of discharge, many STIs are asymptomatic, she says. Check with your doctor if you notice abnormal discharge, experience any itching or pain along with cloudy urine, and ask for an STI test.
5. You have a kidney stone-or multiple kidney stones.
Kidney stones are literally good for nothing–and those sharp, spiky, painful-to-pass suckers, could be the reason for the fog in your pee.
“When moving, the stones might cause tiny scratches that result in blood in urine which then shows up as cloudiness,” says Ayoub. If the stones contain bacteria, they might bring on a UTI too, which again results in cloudy urine. “Also, if the stones break up, some pieces will make urine look cloudy as well,” she says. There’s literally nothing fun about kidney stones, so check in with your doctor and pray for a swift exit.
6. Your urine might actually have blood in it.
So, yeah, blood is red-but if it shows up microscopically in your urine, it could make your pee look more cloudy than pinkish, says Ayoub.
“Causes of blood in urine include UTIs, kidney and bladder stones, enlarged prostate, and-rarely-urinary tract tumors.” It’s important to note that not every cloudy pee contains blood, she says, but you should get your urine tested and see a urologist to be sure.
7. You have chronic kidney disease.
Just so you know, this one is highly unlikely in an otherwise healthy person, but chronic kidney disease (CKD) is still a possibility with cloudy urine.
CKD is a progressive decline in the kidneys’ ability to perform one of its main functions: filtering metabolic waste products from the blood. “This can lead to the excretion of protein, which makes the urine look cloudy,” says Ayoub. Other symptoms include nausea, fatigue, difficulty breathing, muscle cramps, and yellowing of the skin. The kidney damage is usually permanent, but treatment can help ease progression.
8. You have diabetes.
Diabetes is a chronic disease that develops when your blood glucose (or blood sugar) is too high. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, helps regulate that sugar and use it as energy. But when your body doesn’t make enough insulin or doesn’t use it properly, the sugar stays put in the blood instead of going to other cells.
There are two main types of diabetes: Type 1 occurs when the body isn’t producing insulin, and Type 2 (the more common of the two) occurs when the body isn’t responding to insulin properly. According to Ayoub, both types 1 and 2 can result in cloudy urine, “as they can cause sugar to appear in the urine when the blood sugar levels are elevated.”

If you’ve had cloudy urine for a while-along with other common diabetes symptoms like urinating often and feeling extremely thirsty-check in with your doctor.’t-want-to-ignore/ar-BBONb3s?li=BBnba9O&ocid=spartandhp

Worth A Thousand Words (WATW)/Challenge

Worth A Thousand Words (WATW)
For this prompt, simply take in the photo below and let it inspire you. Follow where ever it may lead and take us along with you.


Each Halloween the children played their spooky and silly games. This year though as in years past, something was lurking. No one noticed that their shadows upon the wall were acting on their own accord.  The shadows were alive.

The children were so busy in their games that they failed to see the way their shadows were conspiring to overtake them. A simple game of bobbing for apples was being turned into a game of chance.

Would the children see that they were not acting on their own but that the shadows were controlling their every move. Would Sally actually dive for an apple and end up at the bottom of the pail of water drowned? Would the pumpkin that was lit beside of Angie turn into a fiery flame and gulf the children in its power?

The shadows of children past had done this type of thing. No one could explain the death of all those children in the past. This Halloween the shadows were back at it. They preyed on the innocence of children and made them vulnerable to attacks and most certain deaths.

Un suspecting and trusting were the children, This made them easy to haunt and control. If only their were adults watching those children as they played…but alas they were not around.
