Overview of Dark Yellow Urine Causes

Dark yellow urine causes can vary ranging from mild to severe. When your urine is significantly darker than the normal straw yellow, there may be an underlying condition causing these symptoms. Dark yellow urine causes can include the following conditions:

  • Hepatitis B and other strains of hepatitis.
  • Cirrhosis, scarring of the liver a possible complication of hepatitis B
  • Dehydration. The more dehydrated you are, the darker your urine.
  • Gallstones
  • Bladder or kidney infections
  • Certain food or vitamins

Additional Symptoms Associated with Dark Yellow Urine Causes

Hepatitis B and other strains of hepatitis are common dark yellow urine causes. Other symptoms of hepatitis B may include jaundice, fatigue, slight fever, abdominal pain, or loss of appetite. If hepatitis B has progressed to cirrhosis, symptoms may be more serious.

If you are dehydrated, you may experience dizziness or lightheadedness in addition to dark yellow urine. Gallstones may include abdominal pain, fever, or jaundice. Bladder and kidney infections can cause abdominal and pelvic pain and pain while urinating.

Diagnosing Dark Yellow Urine Causes

Causes of dark yellow urine can be diagnosed through STD testing. Hepatitis B (as well as other hepatitis strains) is often transferred through sex and IV drugs. STD and hepatitis B testing is a quick diagnose or rule out serious dark urine causes.

If you have been vaccinated for hepatitis B, other strains of hepatitis or conditions may be causing dark yellow urine. A doctor can help diagnose your symptoms.

Treating Dark Yellow Urine Causes

If the cause of dark yellow urine is hepatitis B, treatment will depend whether the infection is acute or chronic. Acute hepatitis B infection does not require any specific treatment. A healthy lifestyle can help keep symptoms of hepatitis B in check though. Chronic hepatitis B is more serious and requires the use of antiviral medication to slow the reproduction of the virus. In severe cases, a liver transplant may be necessary.

If dark yellow urine causes reveal to be other conditions, a doctor will advise you on proper treatment.
