urine, piss, pee, piddle, weewee, water(noun)
liquid excretory product
"there was blood in his urine"; "the child had to make water"
Liquid excrement consisting of water, salts and urea, which is made in the kidneys, stored in the bladder, then released through the urethra.
in mammals, a fluid excretion from the kidneys; in birds and reptiles, a solid or semisolid excretion
Urine is a typically sterile liquid by-product of the body secreted by the kidneys through a process called urination and excreted through the urethra. Cellular metabolism generates numerous by-products, many rich in nitrogen, that require elimination from the bloodstream. These by-products are eventually expelled from the body during urination, the primary method for excreting water-soluble chemicals from the body. These chemicals can be detected and analyzed by urinalysis. Certain disease conditions can result in pathogen-contaminated urine.
