A 46 year-old female patient presented with bright reddish-orange urine.
She had no recent illness and was otherwise asymptomatic. Upon further discussion, the patient acknowledged recently eating beets. Any person who consumes beets may produce beet-colored urine, but the incidence is substantially higher in patients with iron deficiency. The red pigment in beets is oxidized by ferric iron, and in iron deficient states, there can be insufficient iron to cause decolourisation.
