Kidney has the function of producing urine, so patients with kidney disease can have many abnormal symptoms in their urine. Sometimes, patients may find they have bubbles in their urine, while is it the indication of kidney disease?
Why patients with kidney disease have bubbles in their urine?
Bubbles in urine can be caused by many factors, and that is because the tension of urine surface is risen, which is caused by the organic or disorganic substances in it. For example, patients with diabetes often have big bubbles in their urine, which is caused by the large amount of glucose in urine.
While for patients with kidney disease, their urine bubbles often refer to the problem caused by their kidney disease. In fact, that is mainly caused by massive proteinuria.
Protein is a nutrient that should be kept in our body, but for patients with kidney disease, their kidney structure can be damaged by their disease. And when the glomerular filtration membrane is damaged, the substances that should be kept in body will be able to leak out through patient’s urine, among which protein will also leak out in this process, and that will form proteinuria.
Bubbles caused by proteinuria have small size, and they can exist for a long time on the urine surface.
Is it dangerous if renal patients have bubbles in urine?
If patient’s urine bubbles are caused by proteinuria, that will be dangerous.
Protein is an important nutrient for our body, so the shortage of protein is very harmful to patient’s body health. Besides, the leaked protein can aggravate the damage in patient’s kidney structure, and increase the permeability of glomerular filtration membrane, which can damage patient’s kidney function obviously.
