Question: Dark-Brown Urine
|AshleyF - Mon Apr 19, 2004 8:06 pm|
What are some diseases prevalent to the northeast US that could cause dark-brown urine?
|Dr. Yasser Mokhtar - Tue Apr 20, 2004 2:02 am|
At any time a urinary problem is suspected, it is better to do a urine analysis.
The causes of dark-brown urine include but are not limited to:
- Concentrated urine because of dehydration and not drinking enough water and fluids.
- Urinary tract infections.
- Renal failure.
- Liver failure.
- Blood in the urine.
Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge. com and I hope that this information helped.

yeah just today I started to get the same thing as Ashley I don't know if I should go to the doctor or anything because I really never drink sodas, all I really drink is sweet tea and water and a short time after that I started to work out and I got this werid pain inside of my stomach on the lower left side which is weird because that has never happend to me before, I told my mom about the brownish pee but I dident mention the pain, she told me it could have been for a number of reasons why thats happening to me and not to worry about it and she told me to drink more water I really don't know what I should do so please get back to me on this
