Diabetes patients indeed will experience proteinuria especially when it damages kidneys. Proteinuria shows up as foams or bubbles in patient’s urine. However, many patients feel confused when facing the condition: is foamy urine equal to proteinuria for diabetes patients?
To be frank, not all foams and bubbles in urine equals to proteinuria. And there are lots of reasons which can cause the occurrence of foams or bubbles. You can know the reasons from the following conditions:
If a person eat a large amount of protein at a time and takes too little water, which can induce the increase of the concentration of proteinuria, foams may be formed when urinating.
For diabetics, the urine may has high alkalinity and contains some glucose or mineral salt, which may also lead to the formation of foams.
If diabetes takes strenuous physical activities or has emotional fluctuation and even stands for a long time, the temporary proteinuria may be formed.
In addition, the formation of foamy urine also can be caused by the speed and angle when urinating.
Usually, these circumstances can lead to the formation of proteinuria, which is normal and they can disappear naturally in 24 hours. However, diabetes is also one of leading causes of kidney disease. For patients with long-term diabetes are prone to suffer from Diabetic Nephropathy. When diabetes cause damage to the glomeruli membrane, protein will be leaked out and enter the uirne.
