Brief Answer:
milky urine

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXX,

milky urine can be due to Chyluria, phosphates in urine, lipids or very high protein content of urine. even urinary infection can sometimes cause milky urine.

most common among these is chyle from abnormal lymphatic connections to the urine drainage system.

the causes can be confirmed by urine routine examination. urine culture testing, urine protein and creatinine estimation and urine for chylomicrones or triglycerides.

best wishes.

I have lupus . It s pretty well controlled with Plaquenil , Imura and Medrol. I ve been dieting , well more like fasting so I expect to have protein and ketones in my urine and since I really don t drink much either, unless I m working outdoors I also know my urine will be darker accordingly but I ve never seen oil droplets before. Since yesterday, (I don t remember seeing it before that) I ve noticed it. Yesterday 4ml maybe and today about that again. I do tend to hold urine in longer than I should but that isn t anything new. It s colorless oil. I did have dumping syndrome for approximately 7yrs that began directly after a cholecystectomy but that has long since been over and with no reoccurances. I hate to call my doctor about it ifit is something that can occur normally with any of the above. I d like to know what you think, (past the cya Call your physician* or hang up and dial 9-1-1 . I already know that and above you from any legal responsibilities. I d just like to know what you think and maybe where to look this symptom up for an answer other than a blog where no one has a verifiable answer. Thank you so much. -Dawn

I have been having intermittent pain in my lower abdomen for months. Presently waiting for an ultrasound appt. The pain is almost constant now, but seems to come in waves. Today I peed into a jar and found tiny white chunks at the bottom of the jar. The are solid looking and about the size of 1/3 piece of rice. Urine is good colour, but a little cloudy. I tried to examine things in my urine with upside-down binoculars and the particles that are floating look clear, fat at one end, sort of tapering down to the other end. It does not hurt or burn when I pee.
