Many people know that proteinuria is one of the most common symptoms of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), and most proteinuria has foam in the urine. So many people believe that the occurrence of foam in their urine means the renal damage and their kidneys have been seriously damaged. However, the truth is that: the occurrence of foamy urine is the superficial phenomenon of human body and foamy urine only means the possibility of proteinuria. When there is foamy urine, patients are usually required to take examinations of urine protein to determine whether they have kidney disease. Only by the medical examinations can we determine whether the patients have kidney disease and renal damage, and we can not just by the occurrence of foamy urine. In addition, if there are occasional “+” in the urine protein examination, it does not certainly mean the renal damage. Patients should take regular examinations of urine and renal function, or renal biopsy if it is necessary, to determine the degree of renal damage.
Analysing from the medical science,there is usually foam in the urine of
patients with proteinuria. However, the occurrence of foamy urine does not
certainly mean the proteinuria. That is to say that there is no directly
consequent relation between the foamy urine and proteinuria. And we can not
infer the renal failure symptoms from the foamy urine. So foamy urine is not
equal to proteinuria, and we common people can not just determine it as
proteinuria. The scientific way is to take medical examination in hospital.
Therefore, the key point of prevention and treatment of PKD and its
complications is early diagnosis. By early and scientific diagnosis, we can find
the disease early and avoid the unnecessary uneasiness and worries which will
aggravate the patients' condition. Hope the information is helpful for you and
