This morning I woke having bad stomach pains with stools to start off with, then diarrhea later on. Then I discovered red/pinkish urine in the toilet bowl.

Could it be something I had eaten, as I did have some beetroot the same day? or something more serious.

  • It can be something very red that you ate (beets), specific medications, or blood in urine.

  • You could have a bladder infection, urinary tract infection, or food poisoning, possibly. Or maybe kidney problems.

I was really beginning to become worried about myself when I discovered pink urine twice today, but no pain. I read about the beets, and I had just eaten red beets a few hours before. Many thanks!
