Ok, I had the stomach flu for the past few days and was only drinking water and ginger ale but for the past 2 days when I go to the bathroom and wipe I notice that the color on the tp is bright orange? Like pumpkin orange! (Sorry if tmi) I know that what we eat and drink affects the color but by only drinking clear fluids shouldn't that turn the urine clear? Should I be worried?

i have no idea but i think drinking water hydrates you which means your pee is clear usually but ginger ale is a pop(which i thought typically dehydrates you), so i would think it would still make it a more typical color like yellow.

I would try drinking more water. Also, if you were taking any medicines, they have a tendency to turn pee orange.

inuk, you might be on the verge of dehydrating, Like January said drink more. You're going to have to drink extra because of losing the fluids from your sickness, then needing to rehydrate yourself and your lo. Hope you are feeling better!
