Peeing is the priceless of emptying the bladder of urine. Peeing is usually thought of one long stream, but it is divided into 3 sperate parts: beginning of the urine stream, middle of the urine stream and the end of the urine stream.

Normal and Healthy Peeing

The normal color of urine is either yellow urine or white urine. That is usually a sign that everything is ok. White urine simply means that probably the urine did not stay in your bladder for too long and you excreted it before it had a chance to become yellow.

The yellow in the urine is normal due to the presence of a chemical called urobilin which are byproducts of the body's processing of another chemical called bilirubin. Bilirubin is excreted and used in a number of ways. The processing of bilirubin also occurs in the kidneys which causes some of it to appear in urine which gives the urine the yellow color during peeing.

Stages of Peeing

The body uses urination to get rid of many unneeded chemicals. For that reason, a number of different chemicals can appear in the urine. Urinary tract problems and commonly metabolic problems can cause the urine to take on different colors and appearances. If the body is working hard to battle something unusual going on, you can usually get a sense of that by carefully observing the beginning stage of peeing.

When the urine sits in the bladder, the particles which are more dense than urine settle at the bottom of the bladder. During peeing, these particles are the first to come out. A common occurrence during illness to notice cloudy urine at the beginning of urinary stream when peeing. You may also notice changes in color during peeing. Particles in urine may make give an appearance of orange urine.

Frequency of Peeing

A number of urinary tract problems can affect the amount of urine the body can produce. These are known as Polyuria - condition of excessive production of urine (> 2.5 L/day)
Oliguria - <400 mL of urine produced per day
Anuria - <100 mL per of urine output day.

They commonly have to do with urinary tract blockages or improper working of the kidneys in processing urine and filtering various chemicals.

Pain While Peeing

Painful urination can be caused by problems like urinary tract infections or blockages like the ones that may occur in case of kidney stones or inflammation within the urinary tract or other organs, if that inflammation puts pressure on the urinary tracts and creates blockages.

Diagnosing Peeing Problems

If you suspect that something may be wrong with your urinary tract, you can perform some tests to help you correctly diagnose the problem. Urine tests are called urinalysis. There are many different types of urine tests including test which you can perform at home like the urine dipstick test. This test can show you if you have chemicals in your urine which should not be there including various proteins which would be a condition called Proteinuria. A common type of protein that can be found in urine in case the kidneys are not functioning properly and not filtering things as they should is a protein called Albumin. The condition of having Albumin in urine is called Albuminuria.

Synthetic Pee

Synthetic urine is the artificial substance that copies look, characteristics and chemical compound of human pee. Researchers often use synthetic urine for drug tests as it is a more convenient form of urine for testing than real urine since real urine is much more delicate in nature and must be preserved by by freezing during shipping, and has a really rapid decay rate. Additionally, human urine donors can be problematic as well since their pee may not be healthy or suitable for various tests.
