The term “high acidity” in urine refers to the pH level of urine, which is a measure of how acidic or alkaline it is. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral, below 7 being acidic, and above 7 being alkaline. A pH level below 7 indicates that the urine is acidic.

Generally, the normal pH level for urine ranges between 4.5 to 8.0, with an average of around 6.0. However, variations in pH level can occur due to various factors such as diet, medications, and certain medical conditions.

High acidity in the urine (i.e., a low pH level) can be caused by several factors, including a diet high in acidic foods, certain medical conditions such as gout or renal tubular acidosis, or certain medications. In some cases, high acidity in the urine can lead to conditions such as kidney stones or urinary tract infections.

If you are concerned about the acidity level of your child’s urine, it is important to consult a healthcare provider for proper evaluation and diagnosis.
