Causes And How To Deal With Kidney Nephritis?
my Japanese friend peed blood out, then fever up to 42 degrees. After that his waist hurts so hard to move or stand. The doctor said there was a possibility of nephritis. But now it’s not recovered. What are the causes and how to deal with it
Hello Aurelia, thank you for asking.
Acute nephritis or acute nephritis syndrome is an umbrella term which includes inflammation of kidney tissue. Inflammation can include glomerulus (a network of blood vessels that forms a blood filtering system), tubules (a network of ducts that function to channel filtered fluids), or interstitial tissue in between. This condition is acute and if not treated properly, can cause acute kidney failure.
Inflammation affecting this part of the kidney causes damage to the kidney's filtering system. As a result, toxic metabolic waste can not be filtered from the blood, excess fluid in the body cannot be removed through the kidneys, and large molecules such as protein and red blood cells will exit through the kidney's filtering system and then enter the urine. Symptoms include:
Decreased urine volume.
Urine is thick, dark brown or brick red.
Swelling of the feet, arms, face, or other body parts.
Significant pain in the waist, lower abdomen, and pelvis.
This condition is not a mild condition that can be treated alone. Treatment is aimed at what diseases underlie the occurrence of acute nephritic syndrome. Infection, allergies, or autoimmunity, can trigger acute nephritic syndrome. Some conditions that may be the cause, including:
An allergic reaction to a certain material, such as a drug allergy.
These possibilities must be sought and overcome, so that the nephritic syndrome is cured. Your friend should consult well with the treating doctor. If the condition is indeed bad, then you should undergo hospitalization. The doctor will do a blood sample analysis (to detect an infection), a urine sample (to look for blood and protein), kidney function analysis, CT-scan, or MRI if necessary. Generally a person must undergo bed rest (bed rest), eating habits that are tightly regulated (the volume of fluid that enters should not be arbitrary), the drug is given according to the cause, and there is the possibility of dialysis if the conditions are very bad. Therefore, you should immediately consult a doctor. If your friend is a foreigner, then it is likely that his condition must be stable before he can request treatment in his home country.
Thus my explanation, hopefully it helps. Regards.
