my boyfriend hardly drinks water and he drinks alot of alcohol all the time and he doesn't seem to go to the bathroom much, so i noticed his urine is always kind of really yellow, after he told me his lower waist hurts, i had him go do a body check with me at the emergency room and the doctor tested his urine and said that "don't worry his urine is normal!" but they got him to do a blood test which we won't get the results in for until a few more days, so since the doctor saids his urine is fine (dipping some...stick into the urine method he told me) and when i ask the doc if his kidneys are alright he kept saying "his urine is fine!" so does this mean his kidney is ok (atleast for now?) they asked if his urine has any blood or thickness and he said no.
he has never done any medical checks before in his life, and he doesn't tell me much...so sorry i'm being a bother here, the clinics are closed until tomorrow and we just got back from the emergency room 4 hours ago, i can't sleep please help me i'm worried sick!
what the ER Dr meant was that there was no protein present in the urine. Usually when there's protein present it means that the kidneys are letting protein escape (which is not a good thing).
Yellow urine confirms what you just told us: HE DOES HARDLY DRINKS ANY WATER. Since alcohol is also a diuretic, he's most likely dehyrated from drinking too much alcohol and not enough water.
I would tell your bf to go get his labs done A.S.P.A tell him it will give you peace of mine to see that he's okay.
