Beets - After Effects of Eating?

Sarnie | Feb 19, 2002 04:01 PM

Such an indelicate subject, but I'm wondering if I should get me to a doctor! I ate 2 largish beets yesterday, and my urine turned bright pink just a few hours later. And it's still pink 24 hours later. Is this normal?? It was alarming at first as it looked exactly like my cat's urine looks when he has FUS/FLUTD. Luckily I remembered the beets before I made myself an appointment with the vet. ;-) I haven't eaten beets since I was a teen, so I really don't have prior experience to call upon.

If this is normal, are you aware of any other food culprits?
