Does not look to be serious prblem.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have noticed that you are passing frothy urine since last 8 months.

In absence of any urinary complains this is not a serious problem at all.This could be either due to forceful urination or concentrated urine .

The forceful urination can occur if one does not pass urine for long time resulting in large volume of the urine being collected in bladder which when passed rapidly and forcefully will result in formation of froth when it hits toilet.

The second common cause of frothy urine is when one drinks less water urine becomes concentrated and this concentrated urine is the cause of froth formation.

Please make a regular habit to pass urine frequently and drink more water and observe for any improvement if the problem persist consult qualified Nephrologist for detail evaluation and following investigations.

1) Urine analysis and urine culture to rule out UTI.
2) Total amount of proteins excreted in urine in 24 hours (You have to collect urine passed in 24 hours).
3) Renal function tests to assess kidney function.
Further treatment ( If needed)will be decided by him on results of these tests .

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you
