I can't urinate normal. I urinate but then there's still urge after I empty my bladder is it chronic kidney failure?

No, usually not...: Many females experience how the way you urinate. And how you urinate is not directly related with kidney function. For the time being, watch what you eat or drink to see if you can identify certain foods or beverages bothering your voiding. Notably, coffee and tea, spice foods, alcohol, etc may affect how you feel in the bladder. So, watch, see, and adjust for change.

Bubbles on my urine? Does it mean that I have a kidney failure as I've read here, huhuh, I am also a salty eater, ?

Bubbles on my urine? Does it mean that I have a kidney failure as I've read here, huhuh, I am also a salty eater, ?

Maybe protein: Bubbly or frothy urine may be caused by protein in the urine - healthy kidneys don't leak protein into the urine. This is easily detected in a routine urinalysis test. There are many reasons kidneys may leak protein - they should be investigated. See a primary care provider for the initial evaluation. Other explanations might be soapy toilet water - try urinating into a very clean bowl to check. ...Read more
