A 19-year-old male asked:

Is it possible to diagnose if there is a liver problem or if it's normal with a urine test alone?

No: There are many liver disorders that would not be detected by an examination of urine alone. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs.
