Should I Be Worried?
If you see bubbles in your urine while urinating, this might or might not be a reason to panic. Even though most people get surprised and worried, to say the least, upon noticing this phenomenon, most of the times it is caused by a simple overuse or force during the urination process. Namely, while you “push” your urinating process in order to get done with it sooner, you cause air to get inside the liquid, causing bubbles to appear once it reaches the toilet. This is normal and presents no worries at all.
Nevertheless, this is not always the case. Our urine comes from kidneys and it contains all the things our organism does not need since it considers these substances waste. Sometimes, the unwanted substances may be some unusual, possibly dangerous ones, causing the formation of bubbles in the kidneys themselves. Then, the same bubbles would appear upon expelling urine from our kidneys.
Reasons Behind Bubbles in Urine
First of all, when we are healthy, we expel very small amounts of proteins in our urine. There are certain parts of our organisms regulating these processes. However, if these get inflamed, we would have excessive amounts of proteins in our urine. Taking into consideration the fact that proteins, once in contact with air, create bubbles, it is not hard to deduce how these bubbles appear in your toilet bowl after you pee. This condition is called proteinuria and it is manifested through an abnormally large amount of bubbles appearing upon urinating.
Secondly, sometimes, an abnormal connection may be created between our intestinal and our bladder systems. This may cause anomalies to appear on the outer layers of our bladder, interfering with the urinating process, triggering the appearance of bubbles. Even though this condition may be a sign of a tumor, it may also subside without any treatment or help. Nevertheless, you should pay your doctor a visit if you ever get to experience persistent appearance of bubbles in your urine.
Alternatively, different bacteria or other microorganisms may inhabit our urinary tract, causing infections. If among these microorganisms, there are some which are capable of producing gases, there is a high likelihood that you will have bubbles in your urine.
Finally, instead of being full with bubbles, your urine may look like foam. This too is often connected to aggressive urination and poses no serious threats to your health. However, it this condition prevails for a longer period of time, make sure you seek medical advice.
