foamy urine

Ok to be brief.
Always dehydrated no matter how much I drink.
Urine seems to be increasingly dark and foamy and strong smelling. Had kidney stone in the past (and have one sat in my kidney now not doing much). Had urine test last November and kidney function was fine. Don't like going to the doctors I hv a feeling they are a little sick of reassuring me.
Should I ignore the foamy urine?

Re: foamy urine

Foamy urine can be a sign of excess protein in the urine, and is not normal. A variety of things can cause proteinuria, so this should be checked out by your Dr. Dark urine can be a sign of blood or bilirubin in urine, or dehydration. A urinalysis as well as blood tests should be done to check for the reasons this is happening. Please don't ignore this.
