Acute Nephritis usually occurs after infection such as upper respiratory tract infection, skin infections and so on. Early inspection of Chronic Nephritis is very important for its treatment in time. The clinical symptoms of the disease vary with different patients. Some patients may not have any clinical symptoms. This kind of Nephritis is called subclinical Acute Nephritis. However, some patients may develop Renal Failure in several days in several days after infection. The common clinical symptoms of Acute Nephritis are as follows:
Usually, hematuria is the primary sign of Acute Nephritis. Nearly all
patients will have hematuria and about 40% of patients have gross hematuria.
Their urine presents cola-colored without blood clot in it. In most cases,
hematuria will disappear in about 2 weeks.
Nearly in all urine routine exams, the proteinuria result shows positive.
But, usually the patients do not have mass protein in their urine and often
keeps within 0.5~3.5 grams per day. About 20% of patients with Acute Nephritis
will have mass urine protein (>3.5 grams per day) and even have Nephritic Syndrome.

patients. Some patients only have eyelid edema in the morning, but some patients
may have systemic edema.

500 ml per day. Sometimes, decreased urination can cause azotaemia.

increased serum creatinine and urea nitrogen. Most patients can recover normal
after several days’ diuretic therapy. However, some patients may develop Acute
Besides the above symptoms, the patients with Acute Nephritis often have
fatigue, poor appetite, nausea, vomit, back pain, dizziness and so on.
