    Foamy urine can be caused by many factors, but most of its causes are not dangerous. But for patients with CKD, when their foamy urine is caused by their kidney damage, it is a dangerous condition, which is often caused by proteinuria.

    In fact, when patients are in stage 3 CKD, many of them often have severe damage in their glomeruli, which may increase the permeability of glomerular filtration membrane. Glomeruli have the effect of keeping the nutrients in our body and filtrating out the metabolic wastes from our blood. As a result, when the permeability of glomerular filtration membrane is damaged, many nutrients should be kept in body will leaking out through urine. And when patients have massive proteinuria, that will cause them to have foamy urine.

    Why foamy urine is dangerous?

    Proteinuria is a indication of damage in patient’s glomeruli, but that is not the major reason why it is dangerous.

    Protein is a matenal, and it can aggravate the damage in nephrons in the process of leaking out. In fact, proteinuria can aggravate patient’s kidney damage obviously if it has not been well controlled, and there is a saying of “ for renal patients, proteinuria is more dangerous than hematuria ”. Besides, protein is an important nutrient for our body. For example, anti-body mainly consists of protein. Thereby, when massive protein is lost, that is very bad for patient’s body health.
