If your urine foams always, here is its 5 possible causes and foods to watch out for
Foamy urine is one of the many characteristics that can be seen in urine, and while it may be a typical occurrence or an indicator of a serious medical condition, it is important to determine the cause.
It is possible for pee to foam and still be regarded normal if the bladder is already full and the urine is striking the toilet or the wall at a rapid enough rate to cause the water to be agitated, giving the urine a foamy appearance as a result.
On the other hand, frothy urine could be an indication of some health issues that require medical care if it is accompanied by certain other symptoms.
When your pee begins to foam, it is imperative that you are aware of some of the other symptoms that may accompany this condition so that you can be on the lookout for them.
These symptoms can include swelling in the hands, feet, face, and abdomen, nausea, vomiting, difficulty sleeping, hazy urine, weakness, lack of appetite, and dark-colored urine.
When an individual has foamy urine and any of these other symptoms are present, it may be an indication that there is an underlying health concern.
Keeping this in mind, let’s take a quick look at a few different medical conditions that could be causing people to have frothy urine:
Concentrated urine due to dehydration;
An abnormally high concentration of albumin in the urine as a result of chronic renal disease;
A condition known as retrograde ejaculation, in which the sperm are retained in the bladder rather than being expelled through the penis;
Amyloidosis, a condition that can damage a variety of organs in the body, including the kidney, and is brought on by the accumulation of specific proteins in the body;
Specific pharmaceuticals in question.
The treatment for urine foaminess is determined on the underlying cause of the foaminess.
Because they can cause kidney disease or damage, certain foods should be consumed with caution or at least in moderation by people who already have kidney issues because it is strongly recommended that they do so.
The following is a list of foods that are good examples of such foods:
Foods High in Salt
Pizza B. Sandwiches
Canned Meats and Sausage D. Fresh Sausage
Foods that raise the level of sugar in the blood
Rice Bread Sugar Foods and Drinks A. Rice B. Bread
Foods That Are High in Protein
Fish B. Meats C. Eggs D. Milk E. Dairy Products A. Meats B. Fish C. Eggs D. Milk
In conclusion, we are not suggesting that you avoid these foods altogether; rather, we are suggesting that you restrict your consumption of them in order to prevent renal disease, which may result in foamy urine.
