Nephritis is one of the leading causes for renal failure which needs patients to do dialysis or kidney transplant. To get prevent renal failure effectively, it is necessary for patients to understand how nephritis cause renal failure. Only take measures on the basis of this, can illness progression be stopped radically.
Just as its name implies, Nephritis means there is inflammation in kidney. Inflammation is part of the complex biological response of vascular tissues to harmful stimuli, such as pathogens, damaged cells or irritants. Nephritis occurs when harmful stimuli deposit in kidney. Inflammation helps kidneys remove harmful stimuli, which is good for our kidneys seeing from a certain angle. However, if this condition lasts for a long time, surrounding kidney tissues will be damaged.
Kidney is a complex organ with multiple functions. When kidney tissues are injured and fail to work properly, kidney function decreases, causing a series of symptoms. At the initial stage of Nephritis, only a small group of kidney tissues are injured mildly. And in such a condition, no obvious symptoms appear. Therefore, early stage nephritis is hard to be founded. Also, this is the reason why many patients are diagnosed with late stage kidney problem when they realize there is something wrong with their kidney.
Renal failure is used to describe an illness condition in which most of kidney tissues are damaged and kidneys can not help to maintain a normal life any more. For patients with Nephritis, if inflammation can not be blocked timely and effectively, more and more kidney tissues will be injured by inflammation. And finally, renal failure will be caused. Blocking inflammation is essential for preventing further kidney damages, so patients are always prescribed with immunosuppressive agents which can restrain our body from overreaction to harmful stimuli. This is helpful and helps to slow down illness progression, but can not solve problem from the root, as harmful stimuli can not be removed from kidneys through these drugs. This helps to explain why many patients experience relapse of illness when they reduce dose of medicine or stops taking medicines.
For Nephritis patients, to prevent renal failure radically, removing harmful stimuli from kidney is the key point. Only in this way, can inflammation be prevented radically and also can further kidney damages are avoided.
