Acute glomerulonephritis develops suddenly and is often the result of an infection. Prevention of acute glomerulonephritis includes early diagnosis and treatment of sore throats and skin lesions. Interventions for acute glomerulonephritis may include promoting rest, restricting salt and fluid intake, and restricting protein depending on the severity of the disease process. Drug therapy includes the administration of antihypertensives, diuretics, or antibiotics. In most cases, recovery from acute glomerulonephritis is complete, however, progressive involvement can lead to chronic conditions or the development of end stage kidney disease.
6 KEY FACTS
