Frothy Bubbles in Urine
I am a Asian female of 68 years. I have detected bubbles in my urine for sometime. Hearsay claims that it`s a disorder. In December my lab results showed my GFR Non-Afr Am was low at 56ml/min - normal being 60. Thank you.
Bubbles in the urine may mean that protein is present, which may be an early sign of kidney disease. Your doctor can easily test your urine for protein and can go from there.
