Is Foamy Urine A Bad Indicator For Patients With CKD

Is Foamy Urine A Bad Indicator For Patients With CKDFor patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), it is common to see foams in their urine. Patients with CKD may have heard that foamy urine in CKD is a condition that should be carefully deal with. While, is foamy urine a bad indicator?

Why our urine to be foamy?

Our urine should be clear liquid, while sometimes there are foams on its surface, and this is especially common in patients with kidney disease.

In fact, many factors can lead to this condition. In normal condition, the tension of our urine surface is low. But when there are organic or disorganic substances in urine, the tension will rise, and foams will appear due to the gravity.

Is foamy urine a bad indicator for patients with CKD?

As we have said, foamy urine often appears in patients with CKD, but whether it is dangerous depends on its causes.

Patient’s urine will be foamy if there are organic or disorganic substances in urine, and patient;s urine can also become foamy easily if there is excess glucose or mineral salts leaking through his urine. Patients should not worry too much at this point. And for patients with diabetic nephropathy, it is also very common to see foams in their urine, but that will disappear quickly.

On the other hand, if patients with CKD have tiny foams on their urine surface, and they can exist for a long time, that is often a bad indicator.

Why foamy urine in CKD is bad?

Foamy urine in patients with CKD is often caused by kidney damage, which means the nutrients that should be kept in body leaking out through urine, and then foams form. In fact, foamy urine in CKD patients usually refers to their proteinuria, which is a common complication, and that is dangerous.

Protein is an important nutrient for our body health, but it will leak out if patient’s glomerular filtration membrane is damaged by his disease. What’s more, protein is a macromolecule, and it can aggravate the damage to kidney structure when it leaks out, which will lower patient’s kidney function further.

Thereby, foamy urine will be a dangerous indicator when it is caused by proteinuria, and patient should take measures to deal with his problem as soon as possible at this point.
