Is it to be concerned about the grit in the urine?

I noticed a small amount of orange grit in my urine. I have no pain and everything else is normal. I have never seen it before. I'm 47, 6'1",210 lbs and had a diagnosis of BPH 3 years ago, but everything is fine now. I did not have the grit at that time.

Hello,

This orange grit is usually due to calculus or gravels in the urinary system with nidus formation surrounded by clumps of bacteria of infection/amino acids/minerals reacting chemically with urine and giving orange color. Need urine microscopy and ultrasound examination for the calculus. Till then consume plenty of liquids to flush that.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel
