Fatty Liver Disease: The Most Common Symptoms

5. Urine Color

Oftentimes, if jaundice (a yellowing of the skin and in the whites of the eyes) develops, you will also notice changes in the color of your urine, which will usually appear unusually dark. This is because of the presence of toxins which are normally processed by the liver, but are passed through to the urine when the liver cannot properly deal with them. You may also notice that your urine has an unusually strong or pungent odor, and urination may become labored or painful as it thickens in consistency.

Changes in the constitution and color of your feces may also occur. Stools may becoming whitish or clay-colored, omitting a severe odor. Alternately, they could become tarry, and you may detect small or large amounts of blood when you pass a bowel movement. Such symptoms are serious, and should be reported to your doctor or primary caregiver immediately.
