My urine is DARK orange and smells kinda gross...not terrible just a little worse than normal?

All I've eaten today is noodles and salad. I've been drinking a lot of black tea and had some blue gatorade. What could be causing this? I'm not really experiencing any pain or anything..

  • no water. Drink lots of water & your pee won't be so nasty.

  • if no pain with pee
    i am guessing it is all the artifical food dyes in the gatorade
    blue gatorade has TONS of food dyes

  • Could be dehydration. Tea has caffeine that is a diarrhetic. Try drinking more water or caffeine free tea and see if that helps.

  • Have you started taking a lot of vitamins? That can give you nasty urine, too.

  • Drink a lot of water, and see if it fixes it. If not, go get some bloodwork done, orange urine is a sign of your liver not working right and causing bilirubin in your body. So if the water doesn't fix it, then you need to go to the dr right away. Not something to mess around with when your urine is dark orange.
