Do Pods Make Your Urine Foamy in Kidney Disease PatientsIn kidney disease patients, foamy urine always indicates proteinuria ( protein in the urine >3.5g/ 24 hours). There are some factors that can lead to this symptom. Do pods make your urine foamy?

Get facts on pods

Fresh peas in the pods are good resources of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and fibers. However, for kidney disease patients, peas in the pods may causes severe problems, due to its high level of protein.

After the metabolism of protein, it will produce some wastes which should be discharged by the kidneys. Therefore, if you eat peas in the pods, you will burden your kidneys and then might experience more serious proteinuria.

Other causes of foamy urine

Except kidney damage, there are some other factors that can lead to foamy urine. For example, rapid urination, concentrated urine, toilet cleaner, presence of semen, and urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the common causes.

Secondly, some medicines such as blood pressure medicines, like ACE inhibitors and ARBs are effective for reducing proteinuria. Consult your doctor for specific dosage.
