I had kidney failure, and one of the symptoms is bubbles in the urine. However, there are many causes for bubbles in urine that may be 'natural.'
One cause can be high protein.
So for a little bit of education on 'bubbles in urine,' I thought it was a good idea to start a discussion on the subject.
Excess protein (albumin) in the urine is one of the signs of kidney disease.
So, it's not that bubbles are a sign of kidney disease, it's the protein/albumin that's a symptom.
In other words, if you're having bubbles in your urine, you should have it checked to see if there is excess albumin, which is crossing over from your blood.
All that blood they are always testing before/after/ during your dialysis ci? They are checking your albumin, creatinine, BUN (Blood urea nitrogen), etc. to check the efficiency of the dialysis, and your condition.
