Hi Sukie,
Biliverdin is green in color and can give the
urine a green color. Biliverdin is usually converted
to bilirubin. Bilirubin is yellow in color. High bilirubin
will cause jaundice (yellow color to skin, eyes,etc.).
As Dr Williams pointed out, destruction of red blood
cells can also cause increased biliverdin and a green color
to the urine along with some other possible causes.
