3 Medical Problems That Can Cause Foamy Urine & When To Worry About It

Proteinuria, urinary tract infections (UTIs), and renal dysfunction are all potential causes of foamy urine. Foamy pee has many bubbles that resemble foam. The presence of foam in one's urine may be due to something innocuous, or it may be an indicator of a more significant underlying medical condition.

Occasional foaming of the urinary tract is normal and should not be cause for concern; however, if the problem persists, you should schedule an appointment with your primary care physician so that tests can be run to evaluate if your urinary tract system is functioning normally.

Foamy urine may be a symptom of a number of different health issues.

According to MedicalNewsToday, the following three diseases/conditions can produce foamy pee.

Urinary tract infection (1):

According to healthline Infection of the urinary tract may occur if potentially infectious microorganisms enter the urinary tract system. You may also experience a burning feeling while urinating, a frothy look in your urine, and a greater need to urinate frequently. If you suspect you have a UTI, you should see a doctor without delay. Putting off treatment raises the risk of complications.

Also, protein in the urine.

In patients with this disease, there is an increase in the amount of protein excreted in the urine. Passed urine typically includes only a little amount of protein. Having a frothy look in pee is a sign that these levels are high enough. Problems with urine filtration in the kidneys lead to an overproduction of protein, which can be a warning sign of imminent renal disease. Renal filtration issues can be brought on by a number of different medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and other diseases that are not under control, exposure to environmental pollutants, kidney infections, or traumas.

Kidney disorders, third

Renal disease, which kidney stones and diabetes can both contribute to, can be indicated by foamy urine. You can find out if you have renal disease with a simple urine test.

There are times when you should be worried about foamy pee.

Having more solutes than water in your urine can cause it to froth up. Sugar, salt, and proteins are all examples of solutes that can be found in trash. The urine of a severely dehydrated person tends to become more concentrated.

If your urine frequently becomes frothy, it may contain an abnormally high level of protein. When protein is lost through the kidneys at an abnormally high rate, this condition is known as proteinuria. Abnormally large levels of protein in the urine are known as proteinuria.

Foamy urine, fatigue, vomiting, and swelling of the hands, feet, face, and belly are all signs that may raise worry, as reported by Medicalnewstoday.

Over-the-counter pain relievers and chemicals used in chemotherapy are two examples of drugs that might cause murky urine.
