Glomerulonephritis

Glomerulonephritis is damage to the tiny filters inside the kidneys. It's often caused by body's immune system attacking healthy body tissue. Glomerulonephritis doesn't cause any noticeable symptoms and is often diagnosed when blood or urine tests are carried out for another reason. The condition is characterized by irreversible and progressive glomerular and tubulointerstitial fibrosis, ultimately leading to a reduction in the glomerular filtration rate and retention of uremic toxins.

Glomerulonephritis is a group of diseases that injure the part of the kidney that filters blood When the kidney is injured, it cannot get rid of wastes and extra fluid in the body. If the illness continues, the kidneys may stop working completely, resulting in kidney failure.
