Glomerular Disorders

Glomerular disease reduces the ability of the kidneys to sustain a balance of certain substances in bloodstream. Normally, the kidneys should filter toxins out of the bloodstream and emit 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 excreted into the urine, while toxins may be retained.

Glomerular disease can occur by itself or may be associated with an fundamental medical condition that affects other organ systems, such as lupus nephritis, diabetes, or certain infections. Glomerular disease can develop rapidly or develop gradually over a period of years. Treatment of glomerular disease depends upon its cause and type.
