What causes dark color and unusual smell in the urine?

For several months, i have had urine that smells like sour kraut. It may be somewhat darker in appearance. I'm not sure i have any discomfort, since i have some intestinal issues. I had a blood print done for food allergies! And am on a diet that avoids many common foods (milk, eggs wheat tomatoes, etc. should i have a urine test?

Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to a urinary tract infection.

I suggest to do a urine test to confirm the diagnosis.

I recommend using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms.

If the diagnosis is confirmed, the treatment consists in antibiotics.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contappct me again.

Kind regards!
