The doctors have discovered the reasons for glomerulonephritis to show up in case it is acute. It is a reaction of the body to various infections. One of the examples of such infections could be a strep throat or issues with mouth/teeth. In case the immune system overreacts to the external threats, the nephritis may appear. In case the problem does not disappear, proper treatment is required.

It is also important to keep in mind that chronic illness always looks different from the acute one. It may progress in the course of ages without having significant symptoms detected. The chronic form of nephritis may end up with a severe problem or an absolute kidney failure. A genetic disease is most often the core problem. Males who have problems with hearing (are almost deaf) are more likely to experience chronic GN.
