What are the reason of bubbly & foamy urine? Thanks.

Kidney problems: When your kidneys are first starting to have problems, and you do not have a lot of protein in your urine, you will not notice any symptoms. The only way to know if you have protein in your urine is to have a urine test. The test for protein in the urine measures the amount of albumin in your urine, compared to the amount of creatinine in your urine. This is called the urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio (UACR). A UACR more than 30 mg/g can be a sign of kidney disease. When your kidney damage gets worse and large amounts of protein escape through your urine, you may notice the following symptoms: •Foamy, frothy or bubbly-looking urine when you use the toilet •Swelling in your hands, feet, abdomen or face If you are having these symptoms, your kidney damage may already be severe. Talk to your health care provider immediately about what may be causing your symptoms and what treatment is best for you.

I have had pretty consistent foamy urine, however it is almost completely eliminated with good hydration, is this still a concern?

I have had pretty consistent foamy urine, however it is almost completely eliminated with good hydration, is this still a concern?

Probably not.: Historically conventional wisdom has taught us that foamy urine indicates the presence of abnormally high levels of protein in the urine. Turns out this isn't usually the case. It may be related to benign substances in our diet the the kidneys are eliminating. You can see your doctor who can quickly check to see if there is protein in your urine that needs to be worked up. Otherwise don't worry.

Urine analysis: Hi, if you are concerned that you are having urinary symptoms, your primary care doctor can perform an in-office test to examine if there are any abnormalities in your urine. They will then be able to compare the results with your symptoms and determine if there are any abnormalities that need to be treated.
