Orange colored urine. Elevated liver enzymes. What is the reason?

My urine is orange only when I am not drinking alcohol for the last couple if days. I do drink a lot though. When I drink its much more clear. However I have gone to the doctor in the last couple of months and had mildly elevated liver enzymes but when back after not drinking or taking any meds and it was more regular. I am worried because when I pee during day at work after drinking no alcohol it is orange. What is going on? An I ok?

Hi and welcome to HCM.
You are ok,but it seems to me like you are trying to find a reason to drink alcohol:)
When you drink alcohol your urine is more diluted and there is higher amount of water in it so this is the reason why it seems like you dont have orange urine when after drinking.
Orange urine can be caused by blood in urine and it should be checked up. YOu could have urinary infection or kidney stones. Also you could have had trauma of kidneys and penis. YOu should do urine analysis to verify all this.
Wish you good health.
