I am concerned about
protein in my urine. I am scheduled to see my doc in 2 weeks for a urine test. When i urinate into the toilet, sometimes I get bubbles sometimes I don't. Sometimes the bubble disappear immediately sometimes they are there for a few minutes, or maybe even longer. Bubbles are only on surface and never really build or tower-up where I am urinating. I followed the guidance on a site I found (www.igasite.com/symptoms/252.html
) and urinated into a glass cup (i don't have a testube) and the bubbles appeared but were gone in 50 seconds. I then covered and shook the glass and got bubble/foam that began to disappear, after 20 minutes all that remains is a very small ring of small bubbles around the edge (about
2mm wide) of the glass, the middle is free of bubbles. After 30 mins thin line of bubbles is almost gone. Maybe 1mm in spots, gone in others. After 40 mins only the tiniest bubbles remain either in single or double width line on the surface only at the edges. This was my second urination of the day, and I had a bowl of oatmeal, glasss of water and a cup of coffee.
I am an otherwise healthy person (male 41), with no known health problems and I am not sure when this may have started. I noticed it because I was researching protein in the urine for my wife, who is currently dealing with a sudden and serious health issue that is causing me a TON of stress for the past 3 weeks. I am eating less, but still drinking tons of water, no alcohol or drug use (prescript
ion or otherwise.).
So I guess I am asking do the results of my rookie urologist point to something like proteinuria, or just maybe some trace proteins my urine due to stress, or maybe nothing to be worried about
I am just looking for some educated informed feedback so I can rest a little easier regarding this issue.
