Glomerular disease reduces the ability of the kidneys to sustain a endure of certain substances in bloodstream. Generally, the kidneys should filter toxins out of the bloodstream and emanate them in the urine, but should keep red blood cells and protein in the bloodstream. In individuals with glomerular disease, red blood cells and protein might be expelled into the urine, while toxins may be reserved.
Glomerular disease can occur by itself or may be associated with a fundamental medical condition that upsets other organ systems, such as lupus nephritis, diabetes, or certain infections. Glomerular disease can improve swiftly or develop gradually over a period of years. Treatment of glomerular disease depends upon its cause and type.
