Hi doctor,

For the last one month, I have been suffering from cloudy urine. It is intermittent and does not happen every day. But, when I am urinating I can visually see my urine changing color to milky white. It happens nearly always at the end of my urine stream. Why?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Cloudy urine could be too many causes like phosphaturia (phosphorus in urine), pyuria (pus in urine), chyluria (chyle in urine), stone disease, etc.
  • The exact content that is causing cloudiness should be identified and treatment given accordingly.
  • Do urine routine, urine culture, and urine for triglycerides. Also get renal function test and ultrasonogram of abdomen done to rule out any obvious cause like a kidney stone.
  • Based on these reports, your treatment can very from simple lifestyle changes to major endoscopic surgery.
