How can glomerulonephritis be prevented?

Good hygiene, "safe sex" and avoiding IV drugs are helpful in preventing infections that could lead to this illness.



If you have the chronic type, it is very important to control your blood pressure since this may slow down kidney damage. Your doctor may tell you to eat less protein. A dietitian who is trained to work with kidney patients (a renal dietitian) can be very helpful in planning your diet.

My son had this when he was 4 as a result of HSP. When admitted into Childrens Hospital he was in 80% kidney failure. However, in 4 days his kidneys were functionally almost normally. The DR. said he didnt understand how he recovered so quickly. I am looking for statistics as to this type of recovery.
