Dark yellow urine, strong odor. Treatment?

Hi, I m a 51 year old male. There is a dark yellow colour to my urine (for about 4-5 weeks now) as well as a strong odor. If I drink a great deal of water it seems to get better, but does come back. In addition I ve noticed bad breat problems for about the same amount of time. I m not sure what to make of it or if it will go back to normal naturally?

Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

The possible causes of dark or tea-colored urine are:
-Medications (anti-malarial, antibiotics, laxatives, muscle relaxants, etc.)
-Diet (beans, etc.)
-Infections (urinary tract infections can cause darkening of urine)
-Kidney conditions
-Liver disorders

Please consult a doctor at the earliest. If you are not diagnosed with any of the above conditions and are not on any medications, this is not normal.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
