Patient : I have been having really dark urine. Especially in the mornings and has a high ammonia smell to it. I drink about a gallon plus of water a day. Sometimes I end up making my self sick because I drink so much. I have noticed that the more water I drink the darker my urine is. Also have noticed that if I drink a couple beers, my urine lightens up. Any ideas of what this issue may be or if I have to worry about this?
