There are over a hundred immediately obvious causes of cloudy urine - NONE of them is good for your health. And NONE of them can be guessed at - you HAVE to go for tests so you know what you are being treated for.
Phosphates from your foods, or fats being expelled from your system may cause cloudy urine. Blood in your urine may cause cloudy urine, however, the urine will usually also be tinged red, or brown. Various kinds of urinary tract infection UTI can cause cloudy urine. The urinary tract infection may be accompanied with burning or painful urination. A bladder infection (a more specific type of URT), also known as Cystitis, may cause cloudy urine. Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder.
Kidney stones may cause cloudy urine. They can cause pus in the urine, which gives your pee that milky or cloudy look. Gonorrhea and other sexually transmitted diseases (STD) may cause cloudy urine, but this is more likely a vaginal discharge that creates the appearance of cloudy urine. One more cause of cloudy urine can be when ejaculate is mixed with the urine. This is abnormal and needs immediate attention.
