5. Changes in Urine

Changes in the frequency, consistency, color or volume of urine can be signs of gallbladder disease. Bile pigment present in gallstones may cause the urine to turn dark brown or dark brown-yellow. Discolored urine should be taken seriously as it can be one of the first signs of a gallbladder issue and usually indicates blockage of the common bile duct. Passing blood-colored urine is not usually associated with gallbladder disease. Instead, it may indicate a problem with the kidneys or bladder.
