Ok,I will try not to ramble.
My son who is 10 has developmental and medical "issues".He usually wears diapers but will pee on the toilet if you put him on it.
On Tues am his urine was pink,but I thought he might have put something in the toilet(like a marker or something).Wed am his diaper from overnight was pink and was pink again in the toilet.So I am thinking blood in urine makes it pink,tho he had no signs of UTI(no fever,pain).
I took him to the Dr wed afternoon,he was able to give them a tiny sample(about a teaspoon).They said there was bilirubin,sugar and keytones(DUH,he has type 1 diabetes,so sugar and keytones do not bother me) in his urine but no blood.
They sent it to the lab.The lab said no bilirubin (but it took awhile for the lab to get it and light can break down bilirubin)but there was nitartes.THey told me to call thurs and I did and since C&S was neg for bacteria they told me to call fri,I called fri and still no bacteria,told me to call today,I did and there is still no bacteria.
I did not think he had a UTI,but now since there is no bacteria they told me to call mon if it was still a weird color.
It was not pink this am,but more orange-ish.
His diaper from last night is also orange-ish.
What can make your urine pink or orange if it is not blood?I would think if it was something he ate that it would have been out of his system after 4 days.
I am tempted to take him to children's since they have a lab and can do blood work and a ultrasound.But I do not really feel like spending the day there,esp if it is "nothing"
Has anyone had this happen?
