Summary about Nephritis in English

The kidneys are bean-shaped organs that filter the blood to remove excess water and waste. Nephritis is a condition in which nephrons, functional units of the kidneys, become inflamed. This inflammation can affect kidney function. Nephritis depending upon its type may affect parts of kidney such as glomerulus, tubules, and interstitial tissues. 

 There are three types of nephritis with different causes. This inflammation arises due to infections and toxins or by autoimmune disorders. Pain and urine problems are indications of this problem.  While some types appear suddenly, others develop as part of the chronic disease and require ongoing management. Usually, it is not very dangerous and is cured with treatment. You will need to get in touch with a good nephrologist. You can use marham.pk to find and consult the best nephrologist.
