I am concerned that on occasion I get slightly cloudy urine,

Resolved Question:

I am concerned that on occasion I get slightly cloudy urine, it does not smell and seems normal in volume. You might say go and see your doctor, but I am so worried about this and have convinced myself that I have renal failure which is probably exaggerating the issue or at least I hope so, can you advise what the symptoms of renal failure are and offer any advice. I am on estrodil and no other drugs

Dear Customer, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I can understand your concern.

Well, cloudy urine could be due to high concentration of urine because of dehydration. This is one of the most common cause for cloudy urine.
Other common reasons are-

As you don't have any other associated symptoms, So this problem is more likely to only be a need for greater hydration. You should take plenty of water and take cranberry juice.

Cloudy urine can be normal.

There is no reason, to take stress for serious issue like renal failure. Some of the common symptoms with such renal failure are-

-A metallic taste in the mouth or ammonia breath
-Nausea and vomiting
-Loss of appetite
-Itchiness (pruritis)
-Fatigue
-Shortness of breath
-Weakness
-Mental confusion
-Blood in the urine
-Urine that is foamy or bubbly.

You can get a urine test done, it would put your mind at rest.
Please don't take stress. You don't suffer from any such serious issue.

Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.
