What Is the Life Expectancy of Someone with Glomerulonephritis

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-03-08 17:03

What is the life expectancy of some with glomerulonephritis? It is unpredictable as it is influenced by variables. Your life expectancy is mainly attributable to your kidney disease condition and the therapy you choose.

Kidney Disease condition

Glomerulonephritis is a kidney disorder, in which the filters which help filter wastes and fluids from body are impaired. Also, as the filters are impaired, a large amount of proteins will leak into urine.

High levels of fluids build up in vascular system, which can put extra workload on heart. As a result, the heart will be unable to keep up with the increased volume. Meanwhile, if lung is flooded with fluids, it will make it difficult to breath, depriving heart of oxygen. High levels of potassium can cause irregular heart beat, which is also an attributable factor of heart problem.Therefore, you are at increased risk of heart failure which is the most common cause of kidney disease.

Additionally, as the kidneys are not function adequately, high levels of uremic toxins can impair heart, brain and other organs. Tons of complications and issues can shorten the life expectancy of someone with glomerulonephritis significantly.

Therapy you choose

What therapy you choose plays the key role in affecting the life expectancy of glomerulonephritis.Steroid therapy and immunosuppressive agents are the most common treatments for the condition. However, they only can relieve symptoms, such as proteinuria, swelling, but can not eliminate the causes of the condition. So these treatments alone are not enough to stop the progression of the disease at all.

To stop the disease progression, the treatment should be able to correct the immune dysfunction and restore the impaired glomeruli.If the glomeruli are restored very well, they will be able to work better. If so, the patients with glomerulonephritis will be able to have a normal life expectancy.
