Phytotherapy for chronic glomerulonephritis.
Chronic glomerulonephritis is a disease of the immune nature that flows in the kidney tissue and leads to a gradual loss kidneys of their functions. Chronic glomerulonephritis is relatively rarely preceded by acute glomerulonephritis. Most often the disease immediately acquires a chronic course.
Depending on the main symptoms, several forms are identified chronic glomerulonephritis.
The most favorable of them is the one at which the patient has only changes in the urine (there is a protein and red blood cells), and increased blood pressure and swelling absent. This form of the disease is called latent glomerulonephritis.
If the disease is accompanied by swelling and increased pressure, then this is a severe form of chronic glomerulonephritis. In this case the cardiovascular system also suffers, cardiac insufficiency, and also a disturbance of cerebral circulation can arise.
Persistent edema can be localized on the face, extremities, in the lumbar region. Treatment of chronic glomerulonephritis should only by appointment and under the supervision of a physician.
Phytotherapy is widely used for the prevention of exacerbations and is applied by long courses.

liquid. Since high blood pressure is largely due to fluid retention and sodium salts, it is essential to limit salt intake.
