Normal urine is clear, with a yellowish hue, with no blood or foam. But foam is different from bubbles. While bubbles are bigger, clear and flushable, foam, on the other hand, is white, and it stays in the toilet after you flush.Foamy urine is a sign of protein in the urine, which is not normal. Kidneys filter the protein, but should keep it in the body. If kidneys are releasing protein into the urine, they are not working properly. This could be caused by a number of diseases that directly impact the kidneys but can also be a symptom of a medical issue affecting other systems in your body. If you notice foam in your urine, it is advisable to see your doctor. A simple urine test can confirm if you have protein in your urine, and how much. Based on these test results, your medical history and a thorough exam, your physician may send you to a specialist for further testing and care. It is important to note that foamy urine, when accompanied by swollen legs and swelling around the eyes, can indicate a serious medical condition. If you have all three of these symptoms, you should seek medical care right away.
