Bubbly Urine in the morning???


Doc,

In the mornings I seem to have real yellow bubbly urine. Soapy looking. I went to the Hospital a few months back for the same issues and was told kidneys were fine. Urine tests showed proteins -'NEGATIVE', while (BUN) was '6'. etc... Anyway I drink alot of water on a daily basis and the bubbles go away after the first morning urination. Is it from my 'acid reflux' or 'prostatitis'?  What is going on here?????

Thanks
AM

Bubbly or frothy urine may be indicative of protein and subsequently kidney disease - specifically nephrotic syndrome.  The urinalysis is not the most accurate test for urine protein - you may want to consider a 24-hr protein collection as well as further tests for the kidneys - including a creatinine and kidney ultrasound.

If those tests are negative, this can be followed closely by your primary care physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
