Material presented on this website about the kidney and about kidney disease is offered strictly for educational purposes. This material has been compiled from sources that include the National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse (NKUDIC) and the Kidney and Urology Foundation of America (KUFA). “Glomerular diseases” include several distinct and potentially serious kidney diseases. As blood enters the kidney to begin the filtering process, it passes through a cluster of cells called a glomerulus. In each kidney, about a million “glomeruli” – at the tips of about one million nephrons – initiate the filtering of toxins and waste from the blood. Damage to the glomeruli negatively and often severely impacts healthy kidney functioning and in turn, an individual’s overall health. Glomerular diseases may be caused by drugs, diseases, infections, or traumatic accidents. Glomerulonephritis, sometimes known as glomerular nephritis (GN), causes inflammation of the glomeruli and may lead to complete kidney failure. Other glomerular diseases include:

  • IgA nephropathy (Berger’s disease)
  • Minimal change GN
  • Post-infectious, membranous, and rapidly progressive GN
  • Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS)
