    Proteinuria means the presence of an excess of serum proteins in the urine. The excess protein in the urine often causes the urine to become foamy, although foamy urine may also be caused by bilirubin in the urine, retrograde ejaculation, pneumaturia due to a fistula, or drugs such as pyridium. Up to 150 mg a day of protein may be excreted by a normal person, primarily the Tamm-Horsfall protein.
