Glomerular Disease Clinic
Glomerulonephritis is a group of diseases that injure the part of the kidney that filters blood (called glomeruli). Other terms you may hear used are nephritis and nephrotic syndrome. When urine tests are performed, there is often either protein, blood or both seen in the urine, which is abnormal. Definitive diagnosis often involves a kidney biopsy. If the illness continues without treatment, the kidneys may stop working completely, resulting in kidney failure.
