Does Bubbles In Urine Mean Kidney Disease

2013-06-16 11:53

Does Bubbles In Urine Mean Kidney DiseaseBubbly urine refers to urine with lots of small bubbles which do not disappear within a certain period of time. It is a dominant symptom of kidney disease, so many people worry if they develop kidney problem when they notice there are bubbles in urine.

Does bubbles in urine mean kidney disease?

Though bubbly urine is a sign of kidney disease, but not everyone with bubbles in urine is definitely suffering from kidney disease. In clinic, bubbly urine occurs when there are excess protein in urine (more than 150mg/24h) and it is clinically called proteinuria. According to the exact cause that protein leak into urine, proteinuria or bubbly urine is divided into different types like overflow proteinuria, mixed proteinuria, glomerular proteinuria, tubular proteinuria and histic proteinuria and so on. Many conditions can cause protein in urine, like high protein intake, urinary tract infection, pregnancy, kidney disease and medications and so on. Kidney disease is just one of the causes of bubbly urine.

How does kidney disease cause bubbles in urine?

Our kidneys have filtration function which is performed by glomerular filtration membrane. Glomerular filtration membrane helps us to discharge wastes and reserve nutrition through charge barrier and mechanical barrier. Normally, most of the protein can not pass through this filtration membrane and they are kept in our body. This is the reason why only a small amount of protein(less than 105mg/24h) are found in urine.

For kidney disease patients with bubbly urine, their glomerular filtration membrane has been damaged seriously, and this allows large amount of protein pass through and then leak into urine. Bubbles are formed when protein get out of patients’ body with urine.

How to treat bubbly urine caused by kidney disease?

In kidney disease, since bubbly urine occurs as glomerular filtration membrane is damaged and fails to reserve protein, so repairing damaged glomerular filtration membrane is very essential. As for the treatment, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is recommended. It is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) but totally different from it. In Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Chinese herbs are used externally. These herbs are selected carefully and have been proven to have function of extending blood vessels, blocking inflammation, preventing coagulation and degradating extracellular matrixes. What is more, effective ingredients in these herbs can help to activate injured kidney intrinsic cells to help them work again. In this way, damaged glomerular filtration membrane can be repaired and protein in urine can be reduced effectively. For kidney disease patients, as long as protein in urine is reduced, bubbles in urine is reduced too.
