If Your Urine Always Foams, Here Are 5 Probable Causes And Foods To Watch Out For

The human body always speaks to us and one of the ways it does is through our urine. While most people are not aware of the signs some others do not know how to respond to these signs.

Some people are ignorant of the vast amount of information their urine provides about their physical health. Urine is one of the best indicators of the general state of health of the human body because it is a waste byproduct that is filtered from the bloodstream. This process is carried out through the excretory system with the kidney playing a chief role in the whole process.

Some of the most accurate ways our urine tells us about the general state of our health are through changes in its colour and foaminess because they are influenced by factors such as the type of food eaten, the presence of certain diseases, the type of medications taken am the impact of our daily activities on the body.

Foamy urine is one of the many characteristics of urine. It can be either normal or an indication of a medical condition. One cause of urine foaminess is when the bladder is full and as a result, the urine drops down hard enough, hitting the toilet or wall with enough force to stir up the water which causes it to have a foamy look.
