Symptoms:  Urine foamy
Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. Proteinuria is not a normal finding on urinalysis and is usually indicative of an underlying illness affecting your kidneys. Hypertension is one such cause of proteinuria, as well as acute kidney injury due to certain drugs. We recommend that you address this finding with your doctor in order to determine the cause of this, in order for it to be treated. There are no specific foods that can be eaten to treat proteinuria as we asserted it is a sequel of an underlying illness. Please see your doctor.
