What Does Foams In Urine Indicate

What Does Foams In Urine IndicatePatients with kidney often have foam in their urine. The foams are small, and can exist for a long time. Patients may be curious with this aspect. Thereby, what does foams in urine indicate?

What can we know from patients’ urine foams?

In normal condition, the tension of urine surface is weak, so there are little foams in urine. While when there are organic substances or inorganic substances mixed in urine, the tension of urine surface will rise, and foams will form in this condition.

While to patients with kidney disease, their urine foam is mainly caused by proteinuria, which leads to it has small size and long existence time.

Kidney mainly consists of glomeruli and kidney tubules. Glomeruli have the function of filtration. This function can keep the useful substances in blood, and filter the wastes out of our body. Kidney tubules have the function of reabsorption, which can reabsorb the leaked nutrients and fluid back to our blood. Because of these two functions, our internal balance can be kept. That is to say, when patients have large protein in their urine, their kidneys already have severe damage in this time.

On the other hand, kidney has strong compensation. Even though our kidneys are damaged, if only there are more than half kidney function is normal, there will not be any problem caused by kidney damage.

Thereby, when patients find foams in their urine, which is caused by kidney disease. It indicates more than half’s kidney function is damaged.

What can patients do to improve this condition?


First of all, patients should restrict their protein intake, and this is the most direct way to improve their condition. On the other hand, because protein is important to our health, the necessary amount of protein should also be guaranteed. In fact, the right protein intake is 0.8g/kg, which is also suitable for patients with kidney disease. Besides, there are eight kinds of amino acid that can not be compounded by ourselves, so it is important for patients to take high-quality protein.


The root of patients’ foam urine is kidney damage. So to improve the condition thoroughly, it is important to improve patients’ kidney function.

Western medicine is good at treating single symptoms, but it is not good at improving patients’ overall health. Traditional chinese medicine is good at treating patient’ disease systematically, but the shortage is it need a long time to have effect. Thereby, in the treatment, it is necessary for patients to have a combination of western medicine and traditional chinese medicine.

In the end, if patients find they have foams in their urine, they should keep a good emotion, which is important for their health.
