Anyone have Glomerulonepheritis as a cause of CKD?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi All

I am trying to find out if Glomerulonephritis is a cause of CKD 3. Has anyone here been given this diagnosis for their CKD.

I am 52yrs white female with CKD 3 egfr 45 creatine 111 and persistant microscopic haematuria. I have no other health problems . Trying to work out what the cause is. Would appreciate some ideas

    Hi Jane, 

    i dint know know if I can help give you any answers but I a, a 20 year old who has Stage 3 CKD. I was dianosed 10 months ago as I think I suffered from Glomerulonepheritis as my kidney was leaking excessive amounts of protein which resulted in my kidney functioning decrease. I a, now on medication to help my kidney filter and function more to keep protein from leaking out of my system. 

    I am am still trying to work this out for myself but talk to your GP if you are really concerned

    I have that same diagnosis, im 30 now and have been diagnosed since i was 24. I had a bunch of blood work and a biopsy done and they never found out the exact cause. Anyway I have CKD stage 3 and Its been stable, with medication (ramipril) the protein and blood have disappeared from my urine. I hope this helps you somehow. Our best guess is that this is secondary to probable strep infections I had in the past

    I am dealing with this right now. I am booked in for a biopsy but my protein was 7.95 g leaking in 24 hour urine test. I am in stage 2 i have no immune deficiencies and have no idea what caused this. We will see after biopsy how much damage is done. Just learning to adjust with diet etc.

    I am now on dialysis.  It was assumed that my CKD was a result of recurrent urinary tract infections ascending to the kidneys resulting in glomerulonephritis over the years. Nobody seemed to think it was worthwhile investigating further - presumably because of my age and GFR was down to 20 before anyone realised there was a problem.
