I am male 33yrs and For past one year. I have seen that my urine is foamy in the morning. But less foam or no foam in the afternoons and evenings. If i drink plenty of water and urinate there is no foam occurred. I have two kidney stones with 6mm in left kidney, frequently urine infections causing,
So i talk with a nephrologist. And i did a blood and urine test. The creatinine level is 0.87mg/dl. And the egfr value is>90. And albumin is traces in the urine test. Pus cells 2-4. And the doctor said its normal and nothing to worry about. But this foamy urine is disturbing me a lot. Am i normal or i should do further tests? I am a health anxious person.
The presence of foam in urine can be caused by several factors, some of which may be harmless while others may indicate an underlying medical condition. Here are some possible causes of foamy urine:

1. Normal variation: Foamy urine can sometimes occur due to normal factors, such as the force or speed of urination. If the foam quickly dissipates and is not consistently present, it is generally not a cause for concern.

2. Dehydration: Concentrated urine resulting from dehydration can create more bubbles and foam. Ensuring adequate hydration by drinking enough fluids throughout the day may help reduce foamy urine in such cases.

3. Proteinuria: One of the most common causes of persistent foamy urine is proteinuria, which is the presence of excess protein in the urine. This can be a sign of kidney damage or disease. Conditions like chronic kidney disease, glomerulonephritis, or diabetes can lead to proteinuria. If you consistently notice foamy urine, especially if accompanied by other symptoms like swelling, fatigue, or changes in urinary habits, it is advisable to consult a healthcare professional for further evaluation.

4. Urinary tract infection (UTI): In some cases, a urinary tract infection can cause foamy urine along with symptoms like frequent urination, pain or burning during urination, and cloudy urine. UTIs are typically caused by bacteria and can be treated with antibiotics. Consulting a healthcare professional for diagnosis and appropriate treatment is recommended.

5. Kidney stones: The presence of kidney stones can sometimes lead to foamy urine. Kidney stones are formed when certain substances in the urine crystallize and clump together. Additional symptoms of kidney stones may include severe pain in the back or side, blood in the urine, and frequent urination. If you suspect kidney stones, medical evaluation is necessary for proper diagnosis and management.

These are just a few possible causes of foamy urine. If you have concerns about foamy urine, it is important to consult a healthcare professional who can evaluate your symptoms, perform appropriate tests if necessary, and provide an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
