Difficulty in Breathing in Glomerulonephritis

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-04-01 08:00

Difficulty in Breathing in Glomerulonephritis  Breathing difficulty is used to describe discomfort when breathing and the feeing that you cannot draw a breath. This complaint is commonly seen in glomerulonephritis.

Causes of difficulty in breathing in glomerulonephriits

Difficulty in breathing in glomerulonephiritis may be caused by different possible causes.

Swelling in lung is a major cause of difficulty in breathing in glomerulonephritis. Healthy kidneys can filter out extra fluid and waste products from body normally. However, in glomerulonephritis, the glomeruli which are the filters in kidneys become inflamed and scarred. As a result, high level of fluid will build up in lung, thus leading to difficulty in breathing.

Another cause of difficulty in breathing in glomerulonephritis is anemia. Healthy kidneys can produce EPO, a kind of hormone which can stimulate the production of red blood cells. The hemoglobin in red blood cells can carry oxygen and distribute it to body tissues and cells.

However, in glomerulonephritis, the diseased kidneys fail to produce EPO normally. As a result, the number of red blood cells will decline. Without adequate oxygen supply, the patients will also experience difficulty in breathing.

In addition, high levels of waste products and toxins in blood are also attributor of difficult breathing in glomerulonephritis.
