Dark urine , yellow whites of eyes

My husband's white part of the eyes started turning yellow yesterday and his urine is brownish. He has had digestive illness for the past few days. Other than that no health issues. What could be going on? He has been under a lot of stress due to the business he works for going bankrupt and has had to drive to another city to work at another job making his work days very long. Could that be related ?

I think your husband should seek proper medical advice since yellowing of the eyes can be caused by jaundice which can be a sign of .......... well, let your doctor finish the sentence...

Sounds like a liver problem - jaundice - as Morecambe mentioned.  He needs medical help fast... take him to his doctor today and if they can't see him today, then take him to an ER... brown urine and yellow eyes is NOT good!  You mentioned digestive illness over the past few days... what else has happened?  What medication is he on?  This could be a result of medication as much as illness...

God bless!!!!
