Probably: More information is needed to address the issue. Do you stand for long periods of time during the day? If yes that may explain pooling of fluid in the legs during day and mobilization at night. What you described also fits in with symptoms of early heart failure. It would be prudent to see your doctor for an evaluation.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

You need an exam: In a woman, these could be small vaginal blood clots. Could be "products of conception". Unless something has been introduced into your bladder, I really can't think of anything else that could behave this way. You need a pelvic exam and a urinalysis and a pregnancy test.. ...Read more

Hematuria.: Your first description just sounds like a concentrated urine - like you just need to drink more water - but the blood is a little more thought provoking. You may have an infection, or there could be something else going on. We're generally concerned when blood starts leaving the body. You should see a doctor and start with an exam and urinalysis and culture. ...Read more

Urinalysis: Cloudy urine and urine containing white blood cells (leukocytes) don't necessarily signify a urinary tract infection. The white cells may be contaminants from a vaginal infection or discharge. A clean catch urine culture would rule in or out a urinary tract infection. If you have a vaginal discharge, see your gynecologist and he/she can order any appropriate urinary tests if no vaginal infection ...Read more

My urine in the mornings is dark yellow but the rest of the day it's pretty much clear. I drink a lot of water because I'm an athlete. Is this normal?

Urine color: This is perfectly normal. Urine is "concentrated" by our kidneys during periods of low fluid intake. Like overnight. The darker yellow color is the normal result. Kidneys conserve water, and excrete wastes over night with less water., ...Read more

Left side abdomen hurts, was told that liver enzymes were 77 and my urine is now dark after being clear most of the day?

Need more info: There is not enough information here to help you. There are many liver enzymes checked in one blood test and 77 is normal for some of them. Dark urine can be from vitamins, medications or dehydration. Liver is on the right upper side of the abdomen ; not likely to cause left side abdominal pain. Need to follow up with the doctor who ordered your tests to get more info or possibly more tests. ...Read more

Drink more water and: Less alcohol. The dark color of your urine is likely due to dehydration and your alcohol intake is at least partly to blame for that.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

I have recently cut out soft drinks in an effort to live more healthy. After I did this my urine went dark yellow in the morning. As I drink water in the day it gets clear. Is this normal. No pain and I feel better than when I was on soft drinks.

I have recently cut out soft drinks in an effort to live more healthy. After I did this my urine went dark yellow in the morning. As I drink water in the day it gets clear. Is this normal. No pain and I feel better than when I was on soft drinks.

Drink 2 to 3 liters: It's hard to say why your urine became dark yellow after decreasing soft drinks. Normal urine is a yellow color. Dark yellow urine could indicate not enough fluids. Drinking 2 to 3 liters of fluid daily should keep you hydrated and your urine should get lighter in color indicating good hydration Water is a healthy fluid and your urine becoming lighter during the day is a good sign. ...Read more

Please see a doctor: This is not ALS, but dark urine is a symptom with a wide differential ranging from post-traumatic over-exertion hematuria to issues with kidney (IgG nephropathy) to muscle problems from either an inborn error of metabolism (metabolic myopathies) or mitachondrial disease. You could go into kidney failure with some of these conditions. Please see your doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more
