  1. What HYDRATION tests are you doing? Can you give some light to that method?

    • Our basic hydration tests are urine tests. A few times a year we couple that with blood tests that show a little more deeply into what’s going on. You can do the most basic test and look at the color of your urine. If its yellow or dark orange most of the time it means your dehydrated. if its clear your hydrated. But that doesn’t tell the whole story all the time. Say if I ate something with a lot of vitamin C before I went to the bathroom. My urine would be bright yellow even though I might be very well hydrated. Tomorrow is our next hydration test and am trying to make sure I am where I need to be.
