Brief Answer:
it is a normal value

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

SG stands for the specific gravity or concentration of the urine.

It would depend on how much fluid that a person uses. If the urine was tested and the person hadn't used a lot of fluids or was losing fluids (eg diarrhea or vomiting) then it would be high because the urine is concentrated. The body is trying to hold on to fluids

If the person has used a lot of water, then it would be lower, the urine is less concentrated.

The normal range is 1.010 to 1.030, your value of 1.025 is in the normal range, it means that the concentration of your urine is absolutely normal. it is neither too concentrated or too dilute

It is fine.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
