Thanks for your query.

In diabetes it is very common for one to have Polydipsia (excess thirst) and Polyuria (excess urination). Since there is increase intake of water, urine remains much diluted than normal. Hence it appears much clearer.

This does not cause any complication and the urine gains normal color once the sugar levels are balanced by medications. But again, do not consider urine color as an indicator of your blood sugar control. It is always better to have a proper blood check up for it.

Hope I have answered your query. Please do ask doubts, if any.
