(I;m diagnosed livercir. and Portal hypertension, thing is I only have specific PH complaints and symptoms. So far zero livercir. complaints).
I hope you are all having a nice day so far. I already for quite sometime have a question which even my specialist had not a cut and clear answer for. Simple and short: My urine in the morning is dark(er). The colour is like apple juice. Rest of the day very normal colour, very light yellow / bright. If you have jaundice (im not yellow or anything, my stools seem to be normal colour, not to light), is your urine then always darker, or only in the morning. While searching on the internet THEY ONLY talk about your urine being darker means having jaundice. I only have this in the morning. People on this forum who experience jaundice maybe can help me out...? Would be highly appreciated...
thank you for reading my post and I hope your day will be great!
I've always had darker urine in the mornings, even before my cirrhosis diagnosis, so I wouldn't worry about it.......and now you've put me off apple juice🤣🤣🤣
Try and keep away from Dr Google......it just adds to anxiety😊😊😊
Yip it's normal. Pipped at the post. 🙄
Im sorry Ofeckman: yep there is nothing wrong because dark in the morning and bright rest of the day is normal, so no probably no jaundice? Or it is normal when you have Jaundice that you only could have darker urine in the morning?
Overnight, your body holds onto water. That causes your urine to be darker in color when you awake.
It means your kidneys are working just fine. Urine output is reduced at nighttime so morning dark urine is normal is it gets progressively more concentrated during the night. This is especially noticeable in people who take vitamin supplements. As you consume fluid during the day it gets lighter in color.
Absolutely nothing to do with jaundice. 🤔
ok great thanks a lot. I feel a lot better. thanks for helping me out.
Apple pips - I see what you did there 🤣
Jolly to the Core, almost. 😜
haha, I won´t compare with food or drinks in the future, because we all love our apple juice don´t we!!
