Gluey Urine- Is it a Sign of Kidney Disease?
Dear Doctor. My father is using a catheter at the moment. My mother has noticed from the urine collection that his urine is very thick and of a gluey consistency. We would like to know if this is a symptom of kidney disease? Thank you.
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. Your father should have a urine analysis done by his doctor to determine if this is a problem related to the kidneys.
