Pink urine

Two encounters from another day on the front lines as a PCP:

1. Pale pink urine, prettiest pee I've ever seen, like a fine rose wine. Beets, it turns out, really do turn urine pink.

2. On another note, to my patients if you're reading my blog, do NOT bring in used tissues to prove the color of that which you are coughing up. I will take your word for it.

Yep, I've had the pink pee from the beets. Scared the heck out of me the first time!
