Consistent Foam in Urine and Type 2 Diabetes

Posted: by Dr.Zhao      Time: 2015-04-13 06:04

Topics: Diabetes Symptoms Foam in Urine

Details: I have consistent foam in my urine and I also have type 2 diabetes. Are these related?

Expert Answer

Long-term type 2 diabetes will induce a series of complications easily.

Consistent foam in urine may reveal some underlying complications for patients with type 2 diabetes.

One is kidney damage. Diabetic Nephropathy is one common complication of type 2 diabetes, while foamy urine, proteinuria, is always the first sign of Diabetic Nephropathy. This is because impaired kidneys are unable to keep protein and other nutrients in the body successfully.

The second one is urinary tract infections. Extra sugar in the urinary tract can increase the risk of infections. If urinary tract is infected, a lot of foam may appear in the urine easily.

The last one is uncontrolled diabetes. If blood sugar level isn’t controlled very well, some substances like inorganic minerals will leak into the urine, causing bubbles in urine.

From the above analysis, we can know the causes of foam in urine change from patient to patient. If you want to find out what causes your problem and accept correct treatment plan, you can consult the doctor online or email to We are glad to help you.
