Why Oliguria In Acute Glomerulonephritis
C3: A low c3 level with gn would point to an autoimmumme process that needs treatment.
Here are some...: Pyelonephritis denotes kidney infection usually extended from its hollow part called renal pelvis, but occasionally maybe a blood-borne infection to kidneys. Glomerulonephritis denotes inflammatory change specifically affecting microfilters (glomeruli) & their associated tubules, which usually result from streptococcal infection, autoimmune disorders, drugs, diseases like diabetes or hypertension.
Why does in acute glomerulonephritis, specific gravity &urine osmolality increase? Shouldn't kidneys loss the ability to concentrate the urine?
Leakage of protein,,: This is likely due to the fact that there is failure of the basement membrane to contain large molecules like proteins, etc. Also in some cases, oliguria can occur, which means anything in the urine can get concentrated even more than it should be. Proteinuria can be almost 3 g/day.
How to diagnose Acute Glomerulonephritis and What is Treatment? As my creatinine is increasing, have back pain and RBC in urine from last 3 months.
After: ALL the non-invasive testing is done, RENAL BIOPSY may be and often is an ABSOLUTE "requirement" to assess the status of renal tissue! Hope this helps! Dr Z
I've been diagnosed with mild chronic Glomerulonephritis. What can I do to prevent it from developing to acute stage?
Avoid some medicatio: If you have chronic kindney disease you can prevent worsening of Kinsey function by avoiding medications which worsen kidney function. You should avoid medications such as Ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) and Naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn). When in doubt ask your doctor or pharmacist. Always read the ingredient labels of multisymptom medications before taking them.
Can IgA and resolving post-infectious glomerulonephritis be differentiated without biopsy? Also, can the acute onset of post-inf gl be asymptomatic?
Need a biopsy: Both IgA and post infectious gn may look similar even on biopsy. Without biopsy can be different in presentation. Post infectious gn can be without symptoms.
With acute diffuse proliferative glomerulonephritis caused by systemic lupus erythematosus, why would a patient have uremia and hyperkalemia?
Complex: Reduction in nephron mass from an injury reduces the gfr. This reduction causes hypertrophy & hyperfiltration of the remaining nephrons & to intraglomerular hypertension. These changes occur to increase the GFR of the remaining nephrons, thus minimizing the functional consequences of nephron loss. The changes are ultimately detrimental because they lead to glomerulosclerosis & further nephron loss.
See below: The common causes of kidney pain are kidney stones, infection and cyst rupture in polycystic kidney disease, besides kidney trauma from any cause and there is a condition called loin pain hematuria syndrome. Besides the above generally speaking chronic glomerulonephritis does not cause kidney pain get yourself examined for other causes.See 1 more doctor answer

Is there a diff between hyposthenuria and non-oliguria? Not concentrated and lacking waste products? Sound the same to me.
Hyposthenuria: Hyposthenuria refers to solute concentration in the urine, changing with oral intake and/or diuretics. Non-oliguria relates to amount of urine output; it is low (less than 500ml/day) or not (>500ml/day), so you can have one and not the other. I hope this was helpful, alina.
I hve glomerulonephritis, controlled bp. I used to consume a lot of cane vinegar whenever I eat. Does vinegar hve bad effects to my kidney?

Oliguria causes azot: Oliguria is one of several causes for azotemia. Azotemia means the build up of metabolic waste products in the blood as a result of inadequate filtering of these substances from the blood by the kidneys. Oliguria means a low urine output, or smaller than normal urine volume produced per day. This can occurr with dehydration, or obsrtuction of urine flow. They both result in diminished filtering.
