Thanks for writing in.

Don't worry, it takes a long time to progress from CKD stage 2 to end stage renal disease when dialysis is required. Frothy urine as other reasons. Are you having burning while passing urine ? In such a case you need to get yourself checked up for urinary tract infection. Have your urine albumin/ creatinine ratio checked up at a nearby lab .. and let me know the results... this will determine what is the actual amount of protein you are excreting in urine.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help
