Inflammation of the kidney’s smallest filtering units (glomeruli) is called glomerulonephritis, but may also be referred to as nephritis or nephrotic
. The inflammation and damage within the kidneys, as a result of glomerulonephritis, is often seen as a result of an autoimmune disease.

Common autoimmune diseases include Lupus, Goodpasture’s Syndrome, and Wegener’s Syndrome. These disorders can contribute to loss of kidney function via disease-specific damage within the kidney.

Symptoms of glomerulonephritis could include:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Hematuria (blood in the urine)
  • Foamy or frothy urine
  • Proteinuria (protein in the urine)
