Type 2 Diabetes affects many people throughout the world. Most often, if patients have suffered from diabetes for more than 5~10 years, patients may have foamy urine easily. What does foamy urine mean for diabetics?
Foamy urine and type 2 diabetes
Foamy urine can be caused by several conditions.
If the foams are relatively big and have different sizes, it belongs to normal condition. Then, people with type 2 diabetes don’t need to worry.
If the foams are big and disappear quickly, patients should alert urine glucose. In this condition, it may mean patients’ diabetes isn’t controlled very well.
Additionally, foamy urine may indicate protein in urine or proteinuria. When foams are small and last for long time, it is more likely to be proteinuria. To determine it, diabetics are suggested to do urine test. If it tests out protein urine, diabetics’ kidneys are more likely to be affected by diabetes. That is to say, it means the onset of Diabetic Nephropathy.
