Kidney and Liver infections
Please advise what cause could be of darkened urine (dark brown) and what steps to take. Could a kidney/liver infection have any visible effects on the rest of the body?

Bokkie, it’s probably just something you ate, but it might be due to blood. The most obvious symptoms would be fever and pain over the kidneys. If there is any doubt in your mind the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
