Prednisolone treatment for Glomerulonephritis?


Prednisolone is used for treating glomerulonephritis including - minimal change, epimembranous, membranoprolifative, Paci immune and focal segmental...
How does the treatment work? and also why doesnt it work for other types like iga? thanks!
----------

Question #1: Prednisolone inhibits or reduces the inflammatory response found in these conditions. Of course, it's not used alone to treat the conditions.

Question #2: Although some with minimal change nephropathies have shone improvement with the use of steroid therapy these are patients with preserved renal function. In general, Pred does not benefit the patient with IgA nephropathy and there has been no overwhelming and compelling evidence to support its use.  (+ info)

What is the cause of the peripheral edema that often manifests with glomerulonephritis and nephrotic syndrome?


What is the cause of the peripheral edema that often manifests with glomerulonephritis and nephrotic syndrome?

A. Systemic inflammation

B. Right heart failure

C. Loss of plasma proteins in urine

D. Sodium retention
----------

C.
These kidney conditions cause protein to be lost in the urine. When there is low plasma protein there is low oncotic pressure which causes fluid to leak out of the blood vessels and into the interstitium causing edema.  (+ info)

What is the most effective treatment for blisters on the tongue caused by Linear IgA?


My 7 year old was diagnosed with Linear IgA 2 years ago. SInce that time it has presented itself as painful blisters on her tongue that last for up to two weeks.
Any information regarding an effective treatment would be so greatly appreciated!
----------

You should re-visit your doctor soon. You can consider 1/2 the adult dose of Vitamin B + a good child's multi-vitamin daily. DON'T do anything with those blisters. Be careful with tooth-brushing til you visit the doctor.  (+ info)

Who is at risk for acute glomerulonephritis?


I need to find a website who says the type of people that would be considered high risk for acute glomerulonephritis. Please a specific site that lists who is high risk cuz I could find a site that just talks about it all night long.
----------

A good web site that will give you some good general information with a medical slant is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glomerulonephritis

This site states that the primary causes are ones which are intrinsic to the kidney, whilst secondary causes are associated with certain infections (bacterial, viral or parasitic pathogens), drugs, systemic disorders (SLE, vasculitis) or cancers.

There are several bacteria, viruses, and parasites that do NOT show up on typical lab tests. If you suspect you may have this problem, I would strongly suggest you demand your doctor has a PCR lab test done to look for nanobacteria because the kidney is one of three targets it goes after in the body and can cause this problem. Most doctors rely on typical lab tests and ignore looking deeper into the "root cause" and end up treating the symptoms, not really resolving the issue for the patient.

There is NO specific type of person that the nanobacteria will or will not attack. Anyone can get this problem. The nanobacteria gets into the body in cooked foods and especially in people with low stomach acid or are taking antacids that doctors prescribe for acid reflux and acid indigestion, creating a "doctor induced illness" as a result.

good luck to you  (+ info)

I'm IgA and IgG deficient; Will this cause any problems trying to conceive or carry a child?


Just curious.
Not planning on any time soon, but the doctors never told me anything and I was told recently that IgA is passed through breastmilk and IgG has something to do with the placenta.
It kind of scared me, you know.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
----------

My suggestion is to have a pre-conception appointment with an ob/gyn. I have health issues and it really helped to nail down what the real issues were as well as possible solutions.

My family has IgE and IgG (inherited) and sometimes it is expressed and sometimes it isn't. My Mom didn't breastfeed and that didn't make any difference, but it's interesting that you brought this up. However, if you have a documented shortage, I don't see how it would negatively affect a child who is breastfeeding?

FYI - IgG deficiency is also referred to as Job's syndrome. You should be aware that a recent study in UK found that women with IgG expressed have been known to test positive on pregnancy tests when not actually pregnant.  (+ info)

If the transglutaminase test shows normal patterns but is related to a low IgA, Can you rely on the results?


Doctor thinks she can't be confident about the blood test results because of this low IgA. I need a Doctor's advise.
----------

The IgA is used to test for Coeliac Disease, there are several tests, but I think you are tested for Endomysial which is a positive or negative result. Your doctor needs to talk to the testing laboratory as many have thier own result markers.  (+ info)

Post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis how long does it last after treatment of penicillin?


12 yr old boy. Treated with penicillin and diuretics. Why do the urine test positive for blood cells and proteins after 4 weeks? How long will it take to kidney function to return to normal?
----------

...post strep glomerulonephritis is an inflammatory response in the kidney due to the body's own immune response (production of antigens and antibodies) to a streptococcal infection somewhere else in the body, usually throat or soft tissue. The appropriate and definitive treatment is penicillin(the BEST antibiotic for hemolytic strep) to rid the body of the acute infection, then diuretics to coax the kidneys back into proper function and reduce edema, along with proper fluid and electrolyte balance check and replacement. In the adult antihypertensives may be needed until the inflammatory process is well into retreat. The pediatric patient's kidney function usually bounces back quicker, but spillage of protein and evidence of the inflammatory immune response lasts weeks maybe even a few months......RARELY chronic renal/kidney dysfunction may develop......sounds like the medical Rx given to the child thus far is in order and appropriate for this relatively rare secondary complication of hemolytic strep infection......................joz.........................  (+ info)
