Glomerular disease refers to a group of conditions that affect the glomeruli, which are tiny filters in the kidneys that remove waste and excess fluids from the blood. Here are some things you should know about glomerular disease:
- Glomerular disease can be caused by a variety of factors, including infections, autoimmune disorders, and genetic conditions.
- Symptoms of glomerular disease may include proteinuria (excess protein in the urine), hematuria (blood in the urine), and swelling of the legs, ankles, or feet.
- Early diagnosis and treatment are important in managing glomerular disease and preventing kidney damage.
- Some forms of glomerular disease may not be preventable, but maintaining a healthy lifestyle and managing underlying health conditions can help reduce the risk of kidney damage.
- If you have a family history of kidney disease or have risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or a history of kidney infections, talk to your healthcare provider about strategies to prevent or manage glomerular disease.
- Treatment for glomerular disease depends on the underlying cause and severity of the condition.
- Treatment options may include medications to reduce inflammation, control blood pressure, or suppress the immune system, as well as lifestyle changes such as dietary modifications.
- In advanced cases, kidney transplant or dialysis may be necessary.
