Dark urine, strong amonnia smelling urine

I recently returned from a few months in Thailand. I noticed about halfway into my trip over there that my urine had taken on a foul odor and dark yellow colour. I drank a lot over there and would consider myself a binge drinker I guess. I have been drinking at least 3 times a week for the last 3 - 4 years. I also smoke when I drink. I am worried as I am only in my mid - twenties and I eat very healthily, drink a lot of water and exercise almost every day. Any help?

PS My excrement has also been very runny, sometimes like water, since I got back. I think its time to go to the doctor!!

Re: Dark urine, strong amonnia smelling urine

Did you see a doctor yet?If not you might be told that your dark urine could be a sign of an increase in your bilirubin excretion.This could mean a few things from a liver problem or possibly a gall bladder problem.The ammonia smell could be a sign that your liver is not removing the toxins from breaking down proteins.Also your kidneys could be presenting a filtration problem.Your best advice would be to abstain from alcohol until you get checked out.Your doctor will order liver function tests,urine tests and an ammonia blood test which will be put in ice to the lab.I would not worry too much about it but get yourself to a doctor.Good luck.
