Dr Uzair :

Dr Uzair :

Did you have a fever during this episode of aches?'

Customer:

Yes

Dr Uzair :

Okay.

Dr Uzair :

Fever and aches in the body can cause the urine to become dark, I'll explain why.

Dr Uzair :

Fever causes the insensible loss of water to increase, usually the insensible loss of water from the body is 500 ml per day. With every degree rise in fever this increases two fold.

Dr Uzair :

This coupled with aches and pains in the muscles causes lactic acid to accumulate and muscle breakdown.

Dr Uzair :

Dehydration due to the fever and loss of electrolytes and protein in the urine, concentrates the urine and changes its color.

Dr Uzair :

Since, there is no stinging in the urine and no foul smell, this is not due to infection.

Dr Uzair :

I suggest that you increase the intake of water and use oral rehydration solutions like Gatorade and Pedialyte, drink at least 3 to 4 liters per day to replenish lost stores.

Dr Uzair :

Do you have more queries?
