After a shock when using the bathroom (having forgotten the beetroot consumption earlier that day), I had a look online to see if it the red colour passes through everyone (noting asparagus makes some people’s urine smell but not all).
It brought up a few bits of into but once particular reference to beeturia and iron deficiency -
I have no idea if the source is good, and it appears not to offer any conclusive info (have not gone down into references any further), but does anyone have any information or knowledge on this matter?
Reason for asking is that previously I have consumed beets are not noticed any red passing through. Could be volume consumed, but if there is a link between iron deficiency and passing of red through that could be a good sign for me to act (never had an iron deficiency flagged previously nor have changed my diet since last routine work medical).
