I am trying to find new treatments for glomerulonephritis?


I don't know what you consider old treatment, but this is what I found: Treatment varies depending on the cause of the disorder, and the type and severity of symptoms. The primary treatment goal is control of symptoms. Hypertension may be difficult to control, and it is generally the most important aspect of treatment.

Various antihypertensive medications may be used to attempt to control high blood pressure. Corticosteroids, immunosuppressives, or other medications may be used to treat some of the causes of chronic glomerulonephritis.

Dietary restrictions on salt, fluids, protein, and other substances may be recommended to aid control of hypertension or renal failure.

Dialysis or kidney transplantation may be necessary to control symptoms of renal failure and to sustain life.

Acute glomerulonephritis is treated with bedrest and medications to cure any infection, increase urine output, and lower blood pressure, as necessary. It is important to relieve any strain on the kidneys so they can recover full function. Your doctor may also recommend changes to your diet to control your intake of sodium, protein, and fluids. Most children recover fully, although it may take anywhere from several weeks to months. Adults may take a bit longer. There is currently no treatment to stop the progression of chronic glomerulonephritis. Once kidney failure has occurred, waste products must be removed from the bloodstream for the kidneys through a process called dialysis. A kidney transplant may also be an option.
