Recommendation Salt Intake Reduction"...An actual 'renal diet' (low protein, low potassium, low sodium, low phosphorus, high calories) is not required until IgAN has progressed to more advanced renal failure..."
Bilateral inflammatory changes of the glomeruli that are the result of renal disease rather than infection.
A type of kidney disease in which the kidney's filtering (glomeruli) become inflammed and scarred and slowly lose their ability to remove wastes and excess fluid from the blood to make urine.
An inflammatory disease involving the capillaries (small blood vessels) of the kidney glomeruli.
Inflammation of the glomeruli. Most often, it is caused by an autoimmune disease, but it can also result from infection.
Our Question about foamy urine"IgAN is suspected when protein and blood (visible or not) are found in the urine, and is ultimately diagnosed by biopsy..."
Recommendation Conventional Drug Use"Acute IgAN may be treated with oral steroids..."
acute kidney inflammation. Further info.
a group of inflammatory diseases impairing the function of the filtering units of the kidney.
An inflammation of the glomeruli of the kidneys.
Inflammatory disease of the glomerulus, part of the kidney, which filters toxic waste from the blood. Tests of the urine can show a variety of abnormalities. Complete loss of kidney function can occur.
Recommendation Aerobic Exercise"If there are no other medical contraindications to exercise, nephrologists usually recommend a moderate-to-vigorous exercise program that stimulates the cardiovascular system, such as walking, swimming or cycling (stationary or otherwise)..." Recommendation Conventional Drug Use"...high blood pressure be followed rigorously, as high blood pressure itself further adds to the damage being caused in the kidneys, and it is an independent risk factor for ESRD (not to mention other cardiovascular complications)..."
Recommendation Vitamin E"The evidence in favor of vitamin E for kidney diseases in general is not strong, but there are some studies which suggest that the antioxidant effect of vitamin E may be beneficial in cases of chronic kidney disease..."
A serious kidney inflammation, which may seriously impair kidney function; extreme cases require dialysis or transplant.
Refers to a specific set of renal diseases in which an immunologic mechanism triggers inflammation and proliferation of glomerular tissue.
An inflammation of the filtering structures in the kidneys, hindering removal of waste products from the blood.
Kidney disease characterized by bilateral inflammatory changes in the glomeruli (tufts of capillary loops associated with the nephrons, the functional units of the kidney). The disorder is not caused by infection. It is considered an autoimmune disease.
Condition in which the glomeruli, the tiny filters which clean the blood, are damaged. Often referred to as nephritis. There are many causes.
Inflammation of the kidneyâ€™s filters (glomeruli).
Inflammation in the kidney, characterized often by decreased production of urine and by the presence of blood and protein in the urine.
Inflammation of the kidney involving primarily the glomeruli
This is a painless inflammation of the glomerulus in the kidney, which can lead to high blood pressure and the progressive loss of kidney function.
an inflammatory disorder of the glomeruli of the kidney, often due to the buildup of immune complexes.
a painless inflammation of the filtering part of the kidneys (the glomerulus) - this leads to high blood pressure and progressive loss of kidney function in some cases. There are many different types and they are diagnosed after a kidney biopsy - treatment with anti-inflammatory drugs such as steroids may be used to reduce the kidney damage.

Glomerulonephritis is a kidney disease in which glomeruli become inflamed and scarred and slowly lose their ability to remove wastes and excess water from the blood to make urine.
Inflammation of the kidney's tiny filtering units, which in severe cases can lead to kidney failure.
a disorder that causes inflammation of the internal kidney structures (specifically, the glomeruli); it may be a temporary and reversible condition, or it may be progressive.
Inflammation and damage to the glomerulis (blood vessels that filter blood during urine formation). One of the main causes of kidney disease.
inflammation in the tubes of the kidney. page top
A potentially fatal streptococcal inflammation of the glomeruli in the kidney.
a type of glomerular kidney disease in which the kidneys' filters become inflamed and scarred, and slowly lose their ability to remove wastes and excess fluid from the blood to make urine.
also called GN is a disease of the kidneys in which the glomeruli, the tiny filters in the kidneys that help to clean the blood, become inflamed or damaged. This allows protein and red blood cells to pass into the urine. If glomerulonephritis does not respond to treatment, the glomeruli may slowly be destroyed and the kidneys may lose their ability to clean the blood.
acute inflammation of the glomeruli in the kidney
Acute or chronic inflammation of the kidneys characterized by inflammation of the capillary loops in the glomeruli. A serious risk for chronic renal failure.
inflammation of the glomeruli of the kidney; it increases the permeability of the endothelial-capsular membrane and permits blood cells and proteins to enter the filtrate; also called Bright's disease
An autoimmune disease of the kidneys.
Recommendation Salt Intake Reduction"If you have IgAN with hypertension or edema, you may be asked to reduce sodium intake..."
Inflammation of glomerulus. The glomerulus is part of a nephron, which in turn is the basic functional (working) unit of a kidney. Millions of nephrons acting together filter the blood to produce urine.
Recommendation Reduced Protein Diet"...Also, contrary to what many would assume, a low protein diet is not a synonym for a vegetarian diet..."
The Condition" Glomerulonephritis refers to the condition in which the glomeruli (tiny filters in your kidney which help clean the blood) become inflamed and are unable to carry out their filtering functions..." Our Question about blood in urine"For some patients, IgAN first appears as an acute glomerulonephritis with macroscopic hematuria (visible blood in the urine)..."
The Condition"... IgA Nephropathy The most common form of glomerulonephritis is believed to be IgA Nephropathy (IgAN or Berger's Disease) - an immune complex disorder which causes IgA immune complexes to be deposited in..."
When the filtering units in the kidneys, called the glomeruli, are damaged, the kidneys don't function properly and waste and extra fluids build up in the body.
Glomerulonephritis (GN) is a primary or secondary autoimmune renal disease characterized by inflammation of the glomeruli. It may be asymptomatic, or present with hematuria and/or proteinuria (blood resp. protein in the urine). There are many recognised types, divided in acute, subacute or chronic glomerulonephritis.
