Synpharyngitic Glomerulonephritis and Receiving Social Security DisabilityYour kidneys are located in your abdomen toward the back. Normally, one is on each side of your spine. Your kidneys receive their blood supply by means of the renal arteries directly from your aorta. They carry blood back to your heart through the renal veins to the vena cava. (The term "renal" is taken from the Latin name for kidney.) This post is about Synpharyngitic glomerulonephritis, a kidney ailment that hinders your kidneys ability to remove excess waste and fluids. Your kidneys play an important role in the working of your body. Your kidneys filter your blood and eliminate waste products. They also control your blood pressure, balance levels of electrolytes in your body and stimulate the production of red blood cells. Your kidneys have the ability to monitor the amount of body fluid, the concentrations of electrolytes like potassium and sodium and the acid-base balance of your body. Your kidneys filter waste products of body metabolism, such as uric acid from DNA breakdown and urea from protein metabolism. Sensors inside of your kidneys decide how much water to excrete as urine, along with what concentration of electrolytes when blood flows to your kidneys. For example, if you are dehydrated from exercise or an illness, your kidneys will keep as much water as possible, and your urine will be extremely concentrated. Your urine becomes clear and much more diluted when you have a sufficient amount of water in your body Synpharyngitic glomerulonephritis is a kidney ailment that hinders your kidneys ability to remove excess waste and fluids as a result of abnormal deposits of the immunoglobulin A (IgA), which is found inside of the small blood vessels (glomeruli) of your kidneys. These small blood vessels normally filter excess waste and water from your blood. This filtered material then goes through small renal tubules (fluid-collecting tubes) and eventually ends up in your bladder as urine. IgA deposits in your glomeruli hinder this process and lead to several difficulties. Synpharyngitic glomerulonephritis is a chronic kidney ailment that usually starts gradually. Synpharyngitic glomerulonephritis may occur in anyone at any age. However, this ailment affects young men most of the time. Synpharyngitic glomerulonephritis is the most common kind of primary glomerulonephritis. Synpharyngitic glomerulonephritis results from abnormal deposits of immunoglobin A (IgA) that build up inside of the small blood vessels (glomeruli) of your kidney. However, no one knows what causes this build up. Researchers believe that it may be the result of a combination of genetic and environmental factors.
Connected disorders of Synpharyngitic GlomerulonephritisThe glomerular deposition of synpharyngitic glomerulonephritis may be connected with other disorders. Some of these are:
- ? Infections
- ? Celiac disease
- ? Cirrhosis
- ? Henoch-Schonlein purpura
- ? Dermatitis herpetiformis.
