I have chronic covid for the past 1.5 years with many symptoms (probably due to viral fragment persistance which is under investigation).
I have been diagnosed with inflammation and vascular inflammation. Interferon gamma is high showing an active immune response. Also suspected mast cell activation.
HbA1c negative and 2 random blood glucose tests also negative.
Blood pressure normal.
A kidney test a year ago showed eGFR of 73 and no protein in urine. (I'm 40 years old and otherwise healthy)

I've noticed in the past few months that I have foamy urine.
Dipstick showed high specific gravity, albumin and protein.
I eat a lot of fast food and have noticed when I eat MSG and histamine rich foods, my symptoms increase (dizziness, heaviness feeling in legs)

I started drinking more, and stayed of the fast food for 1 day (still ate protein - eggs, meat at home).
Foamy urine quickly went away, dipstick shows normal specific gravity and no albumin or protein.

My question is why.

Is it that processed food increase my inflammation and at that moment it interfers with kidney function but there's no actual kidney damage?

It is also know that Covid changes the amino acid profile of patients. Is it possible that depletion of certain amino acids affect kidney function? If so, anything specific I could try taking?
