Is there a cause for alert?

I recently found an item that would allow me to bake a garlic bulb in my oven. It was great! The flavor was out of this world...used it on bread, toast, and sometimes...just ate a pod with nothing else. I baked one bulb, and went out and purchased more. After eating about two bulbs...alone...I noticed that my urine appeared cloudy and foamy. This condition has now lasted for about two weeks...is there a cause for alert? Should I stop with the garlic? Need to know...the garlic taste is to dye for...Thanks

I believe the two are mutually exclusive...which means you should go to a doctor to check and make sure your kidneys are OK.

Most of the time cloudy urine indicates a kidney, bladder, or urinary tract infection. So, that is cause to visit your health care provider to get checked out. Foamy urine could be from protein losses in the kidney, but is likely connected to the infection. Either way, that is cause for a health care provider visit. Most likely, these symptoms were not caused by the garlic consumption per se.
