How to Make an Early Diagnosis of Nephritis

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2012-10-11 15:49

As we all know that our kidneys have strong compensatory ability, so people may not detect Nephritis even though the disease has affected them. Therefore, it is necessary to recognize the initial symptoms of Nephritis so as to make an early diagnosis.

Generally, there are four types of Nephritis: acute nephritis, rapidly progressive nephritis, chronic nephritis and latent nephritis. All of these types except the latent form have a common symptom - facial swelling.

Swelling, or edema, is one of the first signs of Nephritis. The edema may firstly appear on the face, and then spread to the lower limbs. Sometimes, patients have swelling on the eyelids and swollen hands and feet.

Another symptom is decreased urine output. In case of Acute Nephritis, patients may have the decrease of urine volume and edema at the same time. The color of urine is dark. Daily urine output can be less than 400ml. Some patients may even experience anuria. About 1/3 of patients may have tea-colored urine due to blood in the urine, which may last for several days to weeks. This condition is mostly seen in prime-age men.

Infections may present before the onset of Acute Nephritis. Patients may have infections of respiratory tract or skin in 1~3 weeks before the onset of the disease. People with Chronic Nephritis usually have no medical history of acute nephritis or streptococcus infection, and the cause is often not easy to be decided. For latent nephritis, patients usually have no medical history of kidney disease.

Once detect the above abnormal manifestations, people are recommended to receive tests and exams as soon as possible. If there is still anything unclear, please leave a message in the below or send an email to kidneyabc@hotmail.com .
