Glomerulonephritis

Glomerulonephritis (gloe-mer-u-low-nuh-FRY-tis) is a group of diseases that cause inflammation of the tiny filters in the kidneys (glomeruli). The function of the kidneys is to remove excess fluid, electrolytes and waste from the blood and pass them into your urine. Glomerulonephritis can come on suddenly or gradually turn into chronic. Lupus and diabetes can cause glomerulonephritis or it can occur on its own. Severe or prolonged inflammation associated with glomerulonephritis can damage the kidneys and treatment depends on the type of glomerulonephritis a patient has. Causes of glomerulonephritis can be infections such as post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis, bacterial endocarditis, viral infections; immune diseases such as lupus, goodpasture’s syndrome, IgA nephropathy; vasculitis such as polyarteritis and granulomatosis with polyangiitis.
