What an interesting question!

Urine color can be an important tool in diagnosing illness. For example, red or pink urine can be caused by blood, but it also can be caused by eating beets or rhubarb. Interesting, right?!

Green urine frequently is caused by dyes, such as those found in vitamins. However, green urine also can indicate a urinary tract infection caused by a specific bug called pseudomonas bacteria.

While the cause of green urine generally isn't harmful, if you have any of these additional symptoms, you should see a doctor:
  • Frequent urge to urinate (pee)
  • Bladder pain
  • Pain with urination (peeing)
  • Cloudy urine
  • Fever and/or chills
  • Nausea and/or vomiting

These symptoms can indicate a urinary tract infection, which needs to be treated by a health care professional.


Hope this helps!
