    Transcript

    00:00 Let's wrap up this part of the video series.

    00:03 Urine specific gravity compares the density of urine with a density of water.

    00:07 And when we're talking about the urine specific gravity, the normal range is 1.010 to 1.030 and pure water is 1.00, down low.

    00:18 Dehydration means there is less water to be excreted in the urine.

    00:23 That means the specific gravity will be higher and the urine will be darker as dehydration increases.

    00:30 Thank you for watching this video with us today.
