I’m 21 years old female. Is it normal that my urine appeared to be slightly red in colour if I ate dragonfruit yesterday?

Greetings! Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding the colour of urine after eating dragon fruit. For your information, your urine colour might turn pink or red if you eat enough red dragon fruit, . This symptom looks more alarming than it actually is. The same thing can happen if you eat a lot of beets. Your urine colour should turn back to its normal color once the fruit is out of your body system.

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions. In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints.
