What Are The Causes Of GlomerulonephritisGlomerulonephritis is also known as glomerular disease which is a kidney disease characterized by inflammation of the glomeruli. When the glomeruli is inflamed, it affects the kidneys’ ability to remove waste and fluid from the body. Besides, glomerulonephritis is a progressive kidney disease. If the disease is not under control for a long time, it can lead to chronic renal failure.

There are two types of glomerulonephritis. One is primary glomerulonephritis, meaning that the kidneys are affected directly. The other is secondary glomerulonephritis, which means the kidneys are damaged because of another illness, such as diabetes or lupus, infection, infection, or drugs. Glomerulonephritis seems to happen twice as often in males as in females.

What causes of glomerulonephritis?

Many times, doctors can not identify the cause of glomerulonephritis. Other times, a genetic disorder or autoimmune disease such as lupus in which the body’s immune system attacks various systems in the body can also lead to glomerulonephritis. Apart from lupus, other disorders which can cause glomerulonephritis include the following:

1. Diabetes

Diabetes is a kind of disease which affects your body’s ability to produce or use insulin and the most common cause of kidney failure. There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2.

2. IgA Nephropathy

It is a kind of kidney disorder which is caused by inflammation of the glomeruli that triggers blood in the urine.

3. Goodpasture’s syndrome

It is an autoimmune disorder that affects the kidneys and lungs. It often lead to kidney failure and lung disease.

4. Membranoproliferative GN I

A kidney disorder characterized by inflammation and changes in the structure of the kidney cells.

5. Membranoproliferative GN II

Deposits build up in the kidneys and scar the kidneys so that the kidneys can not function properly.

6. Post-streptococcal GN

If someone is infected with certain kinds of streptococcus bacteria, kidney disorder will happen. And the bacteria can cause strep throat or skin infections. In this case, the glomeruli become inflamed and can not work properly.

Glomerulonephritis is a kidney disease which can damage kidneys and lead to end stage renal disease. Therefore, if you doubt you are at a risk for glomerulonephritis or are experiencing certain symptoms of this disease, talk to your doctor so as to identify this disease as soon as possible.
