What is glomerulonephritis / Nephritis / Nephrotic Syndrome?
Do You Have Any of these?
Each kidney contains about 1-3 million nephrons and they are the functional unit of the kidney. Each nephron contains a structure called the glomerulus through which the bloodvessels pass and the waste products of the body get purified.
Glomerulonephritis is the term used to describe a group of diseases that damage the part of the kidney that filters blood. When the kidney is damaged, it cannot get rid of wastes and extra fluid in the body. If the illness continues, the kidneys may stop working completely.
