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.

There is another classification of the disease rather than simply chronic or acute. The first type is known as a primary GN: the disease appears and develops independently. A secondary glomerulonephritis is the consequence of the poorly treated health problem. The secondary type can result in such issues as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and polyarteritis nodosa.

It is critical to diagnose the glomerulonephritis correctly and timely. GN is detected once an ordinary urinalysis takes place. If it’s not healthy, it might be the sign. Exams used to evaluate the kidney functionality involve an in-depth examination of pee, numerous blood tests, and kidney biopsy (retrieving tiny parts of kidney tissue to detect the reason for inflammation). The last method is the most effective one in recognizing GN.
