Hi Sydnee,What kind of meds is this girl on? Does she drink or to drugs? There are many reasons why the liver can be irratated.Can you tell us anything more about
your freind?The dark urine like coffee, could be comming from the liver or the kidneys so more info could be helpful to give you any ideas. I'm a cirrhosis patient ( prescript
ion Drugs) . I'm not a Dr. but might be able to give you tips to discuss with Dr. with some history. I have had Divertic since I was 22 because of not enough fibre in my diet. i do not ever recall my urine being as you describe from the times of flare up.How frequently has she been hospitalized with it? Take care later....
Ps Swelling better known as edema is not generally a symptom of bowel. It is typically a symptom of heart or liver or high sodium intake.
