Foamy Urine and High Creatinine in Diabetes

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-03-29 06:38

Diabetes is a significant cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD). As renal function declines, the patients will experience a myriad of symptoms. Foamy urine and high creatinine are two common signs of diabetes kidney disease.

Foamy urine in diabetes

Foamy urine in diabetes is mainly related to loss of excess protein in urine. In right condition, the level of protein in urine is less than 30mg/24h. Glomeruli are the basic functional units in kidneys and each kidney is composed of hundreds of glomeruli. Glomeruli are filters in kidneys, which can filter out waste products from body and meanwhile preserve protein in body.

However, Diabetes can affect the glomeruli over time. If the glomeruli become leaky, a lot of protein will leak into urine. If excessive proteins become lost in urine, it will lead to foamy urine.

High creatinine in diabetes

Creatinine is the byproduct of muscle metabolism. It is a kind of micromolecular waste product and normally eliminated from body by kidneys. However, in diabetes, the diseased kidneys fail to remove creatinine from body, thus leading to high creatinine.

However, not all cases of high creatinine and foamy urine in diabetes are caused by diabetes. If you are diagnosed with Diabetic Nephropathy, the following requirements should be required.

-time interval between diabetes and diabetic nephropathy is at least 5 years.

-massive protein in urine and high blood pressure

-Other target organs are also affected

-Glomerular hematuria is not obvious
