From an interview with Suneel Udani, MD:
Suneel Udani, MD.
Dr. Udani is an Internal Medicine doctor in the Chicago suburbs who specializes in kidney disease, or Nephrology, and practices with Nephrology Associates of Northern Illinois. He is known nationwide for his contributions to research and treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome through his work with the non-profit organization, Nephcure. https://nephcure.org Nephrotic Syndrome may be caused by the rare genetic disease, Glomerulonephritis, or Glomerular Disease.
What is Nephrotic Syndrome?
“The first step in making urine is the filtration of the blood. We have approximately 1 million microscopic filters—called glomeruli—in each kidney. When those filters are injured, larger substances that should not be in the urine start to leak through. It is like a colander whose holes have gotten too big, so the pasta you are trying to rinse falls into the sink. Loss of protein in the urine triggers a series of other complications including fluid retention, elevated blood pressure, cholesterol elevation, bone weakness and, ultimately, progressive loss of kidney function. Heavy protein loss in the urine and the associated complications--low protein in the blood, fluid retention, and more, is characterized as the nephrotic syndrome.”
During the ASN annual meeting, Kidney Week, planned for November of 2019, a Learning Pathway has been reserved for research and clinical information related to Glomerular Disease. Look for “Case Studies in Glomerular Disease” on November 9.
