Glomerulonephritis is the 3rd leading cause of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) in the United States. It occurs when the filtering part of the kidney, the glomerulus, is damaged. Causes include but are not limited to inherited diseases, infections, autoimmune disease, and unknown causes.
Sometimes a kidney biopsy is required for diagnosis.
Early diagnosis and treatment can be crucial in preventing progression of CKD.
Our Nephrologists specialize in specific treatments of Glomerular Disease.
