You may take probiotics in the form of supplements, however, ask your doctor to recommend you a good one as there are plenty of them on the market and not all of them are effective. The best idea, though, is to consume natural probiotics, which you will find in kefir, natural yogurt, kombucha, or kimchi.
Also, remember that you should always take probiotics during the treatment with antibiotics as they kill not only bad bacteria, but the good ones too. Therefore, taking probiotics will help you keep a healthy balance of good and bad bacteria. It will also protect you against the side effects of antibiotic use.
Final Comments on Orange Urine
If you generally feel fine and orange urine is the only worrying sign which you can observe, there is probably nothing to worry about as orange urine itself is rarely a symptom of a serious medical disorder. On the other hand, you should not ignore the problem as well.
Your orange urine may simply be a sign from your body that you do not drink enough water. People tend to take a lot of medicines or supplements when they often deal with the urinary tract issues while the first thing they should do is to properly hydrate themselves.
In many cases drinking water is the only needed remedy to solve the problems with orange urine or any other urinary tract problems. It is true, that the recommended amount of water is about eight glasses of water a day. However, you should treat this individually.
If drinking eight glasses of water seems impossible or really hard for you, you can drink less and still get the positive effects. The rule is that you should drink such an amount of water that makes you urinate a few times a day and that makes your urine clear or pale yellow. It may happen that you will get this effect after drinking only four glasses of water.
Also, drink water every time you only start to feel thirsty or dry in your mouth. Do not try to replace water with coffee or tea as, when overused, they flush the minerals and vitamins from your body and can actually contribute to dehydration.
Of course, if apart from orange urine you also experience other worrying symptoms, such as a burning feeling while urinating or frequent urge to urinate, but with little urine coming out, then drinking water may help, but it will not solve your problem.
Not all urinary tract infections require taking antibiotics. However, you cannot decide it on your own and only your doctor, based on the examination and the urine test results, can decide if you can try to solve the problem with over-the-counter drugs or home remedies or maybe antibiotics are a must.
Last but not least, even if you manage to deal with a urinary tract infection, visit a doctor if you frequently suffer from it as in such a case it is recommended to take blood and urine tests regularly.
