Dark urine is another symptom of jaundice. It occurs when there is a buildup of bilirubin in the blood, which causes the skin to become yellow or orange. In some cases of jaundice, dark urine may occur as a result of the pigment that is produced when decreased red blood cells break down. When the liver is damaged, it cannot properly excrete bilirubin, which causes a backup in the body and results in a urine color that is darker than normal.
