Yellow urine can be a sign of dehydration, or not. Amber 
urine, almost always in combination with reduced output, is 
a guaranteed sign of dehydration.

Thirst is the body's autonomic response to dehydration, just 
as shivering is a reflex response to hypothermia. Both 
dehydration and hypothermia are often regarded as severe 
conditions, though of course they follow a continuum, like 
everything else in the universe. And the human organism is 
pretty good at self-regulating, if we give it a chance.
