Does high blood pressure cause foamy urine?
The answer is certain. High blood pressure can press small part of protein out of blood vessels, which will cause damage to kidneys over time. When the kidneys lose their functions of retaining the beneficial substances, lots of protein will leak, resulting in foamy urine. On the other hand, high blood pressure may make your arteries narrow and plaque buildup, which limits the flow of blood to the kidneys. Due to ischemia and anoxia, your kidneys can not work properly, leading to foamy urine. High blood pressure associated kidney disease is often called Hypertension Nephropathy.
Treatment to foamy urine caused by high blood pressure
-Control blood pressure. High blood pressure is the root cause of foamy urine, so you should bring it under control. ACE inhibitors and ARB are often prescribed by doctors to lower blood pressure.
-Reduce foamy urine. Corticosteroids, such as prednisone, cyclophosphamide, ciclosporin, mycophenolate mofetil, are the common drugs to inhibit the inflammation response in the kidneys so as to reduce foamy urine. ACE inhibitors and ARB also have the function of lessening proteinuria.
Though these drugs are very effective in controlling these symptoms, they have many side effects. Natural remedies are recommended. Traditional Chinese Medicine is such a remedy. Some of the Chinese herbs have the function of anti-inflammation, which can improve your proteinuria, such as tripterygium wilfordii, lumbricus, periostracum cicada, leech and so on. Some have the function of diuretic, which can lower blood pressure, such as corn silk, chrysanthemum, semen cassiae and so on.
If you have high blood pressure for many years, it is very likely for you to have kidney disease. Foamy urine is a symptom of kidney disease. Therefore, you have to pay attention when it appears and see a doctor as soon as possible.
