Should There Be Bubbles in Urine. For most people, sometimes it is common to notice bubbles in urine. Under normal circumstances, there are some organic and inorganic substances in the urine. In case of dehydration or rapid urination, there can be bubbles in urine. But if the bubbles just last for a while and go away after drinking a lot of water, it means nothing and will not cause serious damages to our body.
Normal causes of bubbles in the urine
Rapid urination: Urinating too quickly or forcing urine to come out can be responsible for its bubbly appearance. This is because air is introduced into the urine stream, causing the bubbles. In this case, the bubbles typically disappear within a few minutes.
Concentrated urine: If you’re mildly dehydrated, the urine may become more concentrated, so it appears bubbly. This can be easily resolved by drinking more fluids.
Toilet cleaner: Sometimes, urine reacts with toilet cleaner, resulting in bubbles. If you’re unsure if your urine is bubbly or whether it’s the toilet cleaner causing it to bubble, you can urinate in a separate container that has not been treated with the cleaner and watch for bubbles.
Semen in urine: After sex, small amounts of semen are left in the male urethra. This small amount won’t cause bubbly urine unless the bladder sphincter malfunctions, causing the semen to go back into the bladder. In this case, urine will appear bubbly.
However if these bubbles do not go away after drinking a lot of plenty of water far a while, it could be proteins leaked into urine. For healthy people, there can be very little protein in urine and the proteins are mainly small-molecular due to the barrier function of glomeruli and re-absorption of renal tubules. If there are too much protein leaked into urine and this condition lasts for a long time, it means there might be some damages of the kidney.
If the bubble is large and disappear soon, it might be glycosuria; if the bubbles are small in size and last for very long time, it might be proteinuria especially if bubble urine is companied by frequent urination, urinary urgency, urinary pain, swelling, high blood pressure, it is better to go see the doctor and make clear the exact cause and seek timely and proper treatments to prevent further deterioration because long term proteinuria will in return worsen kidney functions. Besides, bubbles in urine can also be caused by urinary tract infections.
ACEI (angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors) and ARB (angiotensin receptor blockers) are commonly adopted medicines for treating pathological proteinuria.
Besides proper treatments, patients should have adequate rest and avoid over-tiredness. At the same time, controlling of blood pressure, blood sugar and urinary tract infections are very necessary for treating proteinuria and reducing bubbles in urine.
As for the diets, have low-salt and low-protein diets is beneficial for treating bubbles in urine.
