Bubbles in urine
« on: May 21, 2014, 09:47:16 AM »
I'm 17 and recently i have been seeing bubbles in my urine. I don't want to make any conclusions yet but the bubbles don't go away for about 3 minutes. This has been happening for about a week now and I have been feeling aches in my lower back so i'm just wondering if anyone else has had this and anyone has any advice?

Thanks.

I started getting that the summer of 2011.  Sometimes the patch of bubbles would be about 6" x 3"!  It would happen more in the morning and like you said, SOMETIME throughout the day.  I never knew how long they lasted because I'd flush.  I had my urine tested, etc  (Just had routine blood work a month before that) and everything was normal.  I recall getting scared because I was thinking, "Oh maybe it's just something in the toilet..."  but then when I went in the cup at the doctors there was a small patch of bubbles in it!   Turns out it was nothing at all.  The doctor said sometimes the stream becomes turbulent (but it would happen even with a slower stream), she just said it's the way it is hitting the water when coming out.  And you are a guy, so you would be hitting the water from a lot greater distance.  When I was telling my friend she said her son always gets bubbles and so does my husband.  I felt it was normal for a GUY so that's why I was worried.  But it was nothing.
Once I had more of a "foamy" patch, but that was because I didn't drink water ALL day and I was a bit dehydrated.

Thanks for the reply! You have made me feel better, ill try not to think about it then, i only noticed it around a week or so ago. I'll try to stay hydrated. Did the bubbles that you have stay in the toilet or did they disappear? That's my only concern in that i would have thought they'd disappear if it was just due to the urine hitting the water. Some are still present after a few minutes.

Dan ... completely normal. I have that too. What's funny is that most guys (including myself) use the urinals which doesn't allow us to see any bubbles. Last summer I had to use the regular toilet as all the urinals were taken and i notice lots of bubbles. Next time I aimed for the side of the bowl and there was very little. :)

Thanks for the reply, ill stop being concerned now then, it's just that some forms of bubbles can be the first sign of a problem with the kidney so i thought id check if it's normal.

I really don't know how long the bubbles stayed because I would look and flush - but try dropping toilet paper on them.  Mine would go away where the toilet paper hit.

Yeah the bubbles go away when toilet paper is dropped on them, ill just forget about it now, it was just because i was getting lower back pains and so i was concerned about the small amounts of bubbles in my urine.

I read that people who eat a lot of meats tend to have bubbles in their urine.   :yes:
