What does it mean when your urine is "cloudy"

I am kind of embarrassed to ask this but it seems like this has been going on for quite sometime now, 9 times out of 10 my urine is cloudy and I don't know what to think and I don't have insurance or money to go to a DR.

  • It can be from not drinking enough, UTI, or other medical problems. Start with drinking more and see if it improves. If not talk to your dr about it.

  • I would drink more water. I know when you're dehydrated, your urine is really dark, but I'm not 100% about cloudy.

  • Most commonly, so I've be taught, it's down to phosphates. You can test phosphates by dropping a bit of a vinegar into a sample of your wee. If it is phosphates, the wee will turn clear immediately. Phosphates can be just down to eating a huge meal or lots of cow's milk and/or not drinking enough water. But it can be down to kidney problems (most likely a mild infection). To treat a kidney infection at home drink 8 glasses of plain water across the whole day; wee often and stay warm. You take care, Mama. x
