See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, 1+ protein is not worrisome if you renal function, i.e., serum creatinine and eGFR are normal. Bubbles in urine are not a cause for concern. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

That is mucus: Despite some books, most bubbles on urine are due to traces of mucus. 1+ proteinuria is seldom serious but your physician can evaluate it.
