What Causes Foamy Urine In Nephrotic Syndrome

What Causes Foamy Urine In Nephrotic SyndromeFoamy urine is a common symptom in Nephrotic Syndrome which can be caused by various reasons. To know what causes foamy urine can help treat Nephrotic Syndrome better. Now, follow us, you may get the answer.

Here are some common causes of foamy urine in Nephrotic Syndrome:

1. Proteinuria

This is the leading cause to this symptom. Proteinuria is passage of protein in urine. That is to say, normally, a small quantity of protein is passed in urine indeed. However, when the amount achieves a certain degree, which can be called proteinuria. Well, for nephrotic syndrome patients, due to damaged glomerular filtration membrane, a large number of proteins are eliminated along with urine and when it reacts with air and hits the water in the urinal, foamy urine appears.

2. High blood pressure and diabetes

Long-term high blood pressure and diabetes will damage kidney to a large degree. Due to damaged kidney tissues, nephrotic syndrome patients have foamy urine easily.

3. Nephrotic Syndrome

Nephrotic syndrome is a kind of kidney disorder which is usually caused by damage to the clusters of small blood vessels in kidneys that filter wastes and excess water from blood. Besides, blood vessels are also responsible for regulating protein levels in the urine. Because the vessels get damaged or infected and are unable to prevent protein from leaving the body in the urine. As a result, proteinuria or foamy urine occurs.

Actually, apart from the above reasons, urinary tract infection, dehydration, bubble in urine in pregnancy, etc also can cause foamy urine in nephrotic syndrome in our daily life, especially chemicals used to cleanse toilets and urinals. In this situation, to confirm whether the cause is exclusively related to physiological condition, urinate in a clean glass jar or a beaker and see if there are residual bubbles present in urine. If they occur consistently, especially at the same time you have diabetes or high blood pressure, you must see a doctor immediately.
