Why Do Some Prostatitis Patients Have Foamy Urine?

When a man has prostatitis, he may pay special attention to the nature and color of his urine. Many patients may urinate with foamy stuff and wonder if this phenomenon is related to prostatitis. Although foamy urine is not common, some patients will find themselves with foamy urine. Urine is one of the early warning devices for the health condition of the human body, and foamy urine may be a harbinger of some genitourinary infections, such as prostatitis and other diseases. Therefore, patients must pay enough attention to it.

Human urine is produced by the kidneys and discharged through the ureter and bladder as a liquid containing many metabolic end products. Its composition is as below: Water accounts for 96%-97%. The others are urea, uric acid, creatinine, ammonia, other non-protein nitrogen compounds, sulfates, etc. 
When people have prostatitis, the composition of urine changes. Foam in the urine is a phenomenon that occurs when the composition and pH of the urine change. More foam in the urine means that the urine has a high gum content, oil beads on the surface of the urine, and increased surface tension. 
At the same time, the patient also has urinary urgency, painful urination, burning in the urethra, dripping urination, and sometimes difficulty in urination. In addition, if patients have prostatitis, they may carry prostate fluid in the urine. As a result, prostate fluid will be in their urine, showing a "bubble urine" with many "small bubbles."
If patients find a layer of tiny bubbles floating on the surface of the urine that doesn't dissipate for a long time, this may also be an early symptom of nephritis. This "small bubble" is caused by increased protein in the urine. One of the early changes occurring in nephritis patients is the appearance of protein in the urine. If not actively treated, it is easy to develop kidney insufficiency and other problems.
If there is chronic foamy urine, it is related to inflammation of the urinary tract system. Gas-producing bacteria infections in the urinary tract, such as E. coli, Aerobacter, Proteus mirabilis, pneumonia, and yeast, can all produce gas. When these gas-producing bacteria cause urinary tract infections, they can cause fermentation of substances such as glucose in the urine, resulting in foamy urine in the patients.
Patients with foamy urine should promptly check the urine indicators and prostate fluid in the hospital. Whether it is caused by prostatitis or not, it must be promptly checked and treated symptomatically. If all indicators are normal and there is no abnormal urine protein, red blood cells, white blood cells, etc., then no treatment is needed. 
At the time, patients should drink more water to avoid concentrated urine. They should also pay attention to regular work and rest and ensure sufficient rest. After some time, the symptoms will be relieved.
Patients who find that foamy urine is caused by prostatitis can be treated with both herbal and western medicine. The primary purpose of treatment for this disease is to reduce inflammation and relieve discomfort. In western medicine, patients can choose sensitive antibiotics treatment, ensuring that they take the antibiotics according to the course of treatment. 
Herbal medicine is equally a good choice. The herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is proven effective in treating prostatitis and other urinary system diseases. It can effectively kill bacteria through the unique herbal formula to achieve a good result of diuretic drainage.
