Is extremely yellow urine a sign of diabetes?
I noticed that my urine was really yellow, so I started drinking water regularly (I never used to.) Even with the increase in water my urine has remained the same color. Is this a sign of diabetes. I have some of the other symptoms but I don't want to scare myself into identifying these things as diabetes signs when they could be any other number of things. (These symptoms are excessive thirst, dry mouth, fatigue.) I bought a home-glucose test to see if my levels are too high and I'll schedule an appointment with my doctor. I'm wondering if this is a sign of either type of diabetes. I'm 18, 5'2" and 120 pounds but I don't have a family history so I'm a little confused.

Your food can alter your urine colour. Try to stay calm. I used to take these vegetarian multivitamins that made my pee greenish.
Dark yellow urine is often indicative of dehydration.Get some good information based on the topic herehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UrineHope it help.
could be, is it murky, bubbly sugary smell
I've been a diabetic for over 40 years (type 1), and your symptoms of excessive thirst, dry mouth, and fatigue are definite signs of diabetes. Definitely schedule an appointment with your doctor right away, before it gets any worse. When you use the home glucose test, if your result is any number above 120, it could be diabetes. Dark yellow urine can be a sign of any number of things, including diabetes. If it's type 2 diabetes, there doesn't need to be any family history. Usually, but not always, type 1 diabetes is passed from the father to the next generation, so you'd have to look into your family history a little further. Most importantly, make an appointment with your doctor right away. Good luck dear, you'll be fine either way, there are excellent treatments for diabetes if that's what it is, you'll be okay.
