Our urine is usually clear and yellow in color, although it can sometimes have no color at all. It is the body’s way of expelling toxins and other impurities that have been filtered from the blood. While the color can vary from time to time, urine should always be clear. If it is cloudy then it is an indicator that something might be wrong.

There is not necessarily any need to panic because cloudy urine could be down to something as simple as eating certain foods. If it is down to a disease then these are usually treatable with relative ease.

There is a chance it could be something serious, though, so you should arrange to get it checked out. Below are 10 causes of cloudy urine to be aware of.

Cause Of Cloudy Urine #1: Hepatitis

Viral hepatitis is known to cause changes in the color of the urine. Hepatitis A infection may cause the urine to become darker than usual during the icteric phase. Other symptoms associated with this disease are a low-grade fever, malaise, yellow-coloring of the skin and mucosae, nausea, and vomiting. If you are suffering from this condition you should seek medical attention for proper diagnosis.
