A pinkish or red tint of urine is a common symptom, it can talk about the presence of any infections, kidney stones or even oncology, and therefore, in this case, you should consult a doctor for advice.

The disease is hereditary. It is characterized by metabolic malfunctions leading to high blood calcium levels. The so-called blue diaper syndrome is often diagnosed at an early age.
