What causes acidic urine?

Doctor's Assistant: Any pain or burning sensation while urinating? What color is your urine?

Urine is red and so acidic that it melts the barrier of the ostomy bag.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

Have had the symptoms for one week. Need to know the cause,

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Will see my doctor in January. Just thought that if it was caused by something in my diet, I could correct it sooner.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
