What causes dark urine to sweat excessively

Changes in urine

Changes in urine can affect color or cloudiness. At Color changes In the case of urine, the urine loses its normal, light to dark yellow color, which it gets from degraded bile pigments. Changes in color can be harmless, for example due to colorings from food or medicines, but they can also be the result of serious diseases, especially of the liver and biliary tract.

A rapid urine test can provide the first clues about an underlying disease. This test is offered by every family doctor or can be easily used at home with urine test strips from the pharmacy: The test strip is dipped into the urine and after a few minutes changes in the urine can be read on the color scale, which indicate urinary tract infections, diabetes, kidney and liver diseases indicate. The doctor clarifies any abnormal test results through further examinations.

If you drink a lot, the kidneys excrete more fluid than usual, the bile pigments are diluted and the urine is almost as clear as water. If, on the other hand, a lot of body water is lost through sweating, fever, diarrhea or vomiting, or if the amount is insufficient, the kidneys produce concentrated, darker and stronger smelling urine.

Cloudiness of the urine are often less harmless and can a. in men, indicate pathological additions of blood components, pus or cells. In women, vaginal secretions sometimes mix with the urine, causing insignificant cloudiness.
