Missing posts

UPDATE: As far as we can tell, all posts made by The Mix account in the last 12 months (roughly) have been lost. We're working to retrieve them, but for now you might see some gaps or seemingly unanswered questions lying around the forums. It also means the Live Chat Announcements and We Need You sub-forums are looking pretty bare. Bear with us, we're working on it.

  • Oil in my pee

    hmmm...very odd, but hey. When I have a pee, there seems to be a oily residue on the top.

    Any ideas?

    It is normal to have a certain amount of what appears to be an oily residue in your urine, particularly if you let the urine sit for an extended period of time (e.g., more than 20 minutes). If the amount appears to be substantial, or if your urine is also milky in color, you should be seen by your doctor for tests - it may indicate an infection or something more serious. Technically the oily substance is caused by chyle, which is a naturally produced substance by the lymph nodes (composed mostly of fat and proteins).

    Bottom line: If the color of your urine hasn't changed, and if you don't have any other symtpoms, you should be fine (but mention it to your doctor on the next visit). If the color has changed, or if you develop any other symptoms (such as pain or irritation), you should see your doctor.

          I have read that before, but it doesnt really mean anything to me.

          I dont leave the toilet unflushed, and I have noticed it straight after.

          But I suppose I am worrying over nowt!

            It's not a sign of pregnancy, but it's a possible cause of oily urine.
