Lots. c MD ASAP: Dark urine can be concentrated, like from dehydration (or kidney problems), can be from liver problems, obstructed bile ducts, blood problems. Fruity could be from sugar in your urine (not good), as in diabetes, ketones in your urine (not eating or...Complication from diabetes), or related to stuff you ate or meds. Not been eating? Drinking fluids? See a doc asap.To make sure of what is going on.
