When bubbles mean troubles: Two cases of unusual urine

GP undertakes a wee bit of investigative work to address patient complaints sparked by wild mushroom ingestion and sudden ankle swelling

I saw two patients with a chief complaint of bubbles in their urine this month.

One middle-aged woman had eaten some wild mushrooms she was pretty sure she had identified correctly, but once her urine turned bubbly a few days later, she came in to make sure her kidneys were okay.

Even though she was feeling quite well, they were not.
