What could cause bubbles in urine?

What could cause bubbles in urine?

Protein: Bubbles in the urine or "foamy" urine is always worrisome for the possibility of protein in the urine. If this occurs, the doctor can check a urinalysis for the presence of protein. If this is positive, further tests can be done to determine the amount of protein that is being leaked into the urine and what the cause of the protein in the urine is.

How many bubbles in urine is considered a kidney problem?

Just not a good way: To tell if there is kidney disease. There might be more bubbles if there is protein in the urine, but the quality of the water in the toilet, other chemicals in the urine, strength of the stream, etc. OTher than bloody, you need the urinalysis to tell if urine is abnormal.

What could cause tiny (non-frothy) bubbles in urine which do not burst or disperse easily?

What could cause tiny (non-frothy) bubbles in urine which do not burst or disperse easily?

Hard to saydepends,,: Urine has small amounts of protein molecules, excess sodium, potassium, creatinine, and other things that may result in bubbles like this, but it's inconclusive as to what can cause these on a consistent basis. Things like bicarbonate/carbonate, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide may also do it, but it is rare if ever that these are noted in urine. If you have a health issue see your dr./urologist.

Small amount of tiny bubbles in urine. Had my routine CBC and CMP blood tests last month and all was good. Do I still need urine test? Should I worry?

Small amount of tiny bubbles in urine. Had my routine CBC and CMP blood tests last month and all was good. Do I still need urine test? Should I worry?

Bubbles are normal: A chemical urinalysis is indicated at the time of your routine physical exam. Everybody produces some mucus from the urothelial lining of the bladder and this in turn probably accounts for the bubbles. The foam of heavy proteinuria is distinctive and if this is present, your routine urinalysis will detect it.
