Can you answer this medical question (NSFW )?

What does it mean to have bubbles in your pee? I heard of it in eastern medicine. Just wondering.

You may be pregnant.

Usually nothing. If the condition persists, though, I’d see a Dr.

If you push it out fast and hard into a container you get bubbles. It’s that simple

You must mean like soap bubbles when water and soap splash together? Nothing to worry about. Just a combination of things you eat and drink. My pee bubbles all the time, some times more than others.

Read up on Proteinuria. An excess of protein in the urine that can cause foaming and bubbles and may indicate renal illness. Do you have high blood pressure, diabetes or are you taking certain medications? All could factor in. If you’re really concerned see your doc, obviously.

How do you determine this? (Serious question)

I can generate bubbles when I pee but I have always assumed it a derivative of the action of a stream of urine into a flat surface of water.

If the bubbles are generated outside your body then it is very common, the problem would be when the bubbles are generated from inside- go see the doctor…

I asked a doctor this when I was a kid. He said it’s oxygen.

@filmfann LOL….. you should start filling oxygen cylinders…..

One drop of soap in the toilet will foam up nicely. I did that for my kids when they were just learning to pee standing up. It was a great encouragement – and taught how to aim.

Was the toilet recently cleaned?

Do you mean the foam generated by shaking a urine specimen in a collection container?

Or the foam from peeing into a collection container?

Anyway the more protein present in the urine specimen the more foamy the specimen’s potential is. A direct relationship between foam and protein.

Normal urine has no protein. Diabetic patients can lose a lot of protein and sugar in their urine due to kidney damage cause by the disease.
