Brief Answer:
mucus is produced in the urinary tract

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is not abnormal and does not necesssarily indicate that there are any problems.

The urinary tract extends from the kidney to the urethra and includes the kidneys, ureter, bladder , prostate (in males) and urethra.
In the urinary tract there are cells that produce mucus and this mucus can sometimes be seen in the urine.

It may appear as crystals, threads or sediment.

The mucus production play a part is reducing the risk of infection and also protects against chemical agents.

Sometimes increased mucus production can occur in urinary tract infection but this would be associated with other significant changes in the urine and also with symptoms and signs of urinary tract infection (passing urine frequently, discomfort on urination,fever, blood in urine, urgency)

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

My Doughter has operated when she was just 8 months old "a reimplantation of ureters", her right ureter was dileted and opening of ureters ware on the neck of blider, now she is 3.5 yrs old. after operation she was not having a control on urine. Dr Harshad punjani is the uero pediatric surgen who operated the surgery he advice it will take long time to have control on urine, also he started Depsonil 25mg daily to have control. after that she has good control on urine, also we have visited one homeopethic Dorctor, she has also started a medicine on the same problem, but to find out how homeopeticn medicines are working we have reduced the dose of Depsonil to 1 tab after 2 days. but when she took depsonil, at that time she controls urine but 2nd and 3rd day her control is not that much as it is on the 1st day of having depsonil. My Question is how Depsonil is important to give her on daily basis or how we can keep a trust on Homeopetic medicines
