None kind of disease comes out of nowhere, so it is for Nephritis. Chronic Nephritis may cause a varied range of symptoms because the damaged part of kidney and damage degree varies from case to case. Clinically, most patients seek for treatment only after they have progressed into a severe stage and typical symptoms are present. If chronic Nephritis is not treated properly, it may threaten people’s health and drag on for years to develop into renal insufficiency or kidney failure. Hence, it is important to know the causes of Nephritis and seek for treatment timely and properly.

Acute Nephritis progresses into chronic Nephritis. Initially one has acute nephritis, and after treatments, urine output is increased, swelling remitted and other symptoms also turned better. However, hematuria and proteinuria persists there for a longer duration, finally developing into Chronic Nephritis. About 10% cases of Chronic Nephritis result from this.

Chronic Nephritis can be caused by another disease. Poorly controlled high blood pressure and Diabetes can damage blood vessels within the kidneys, causing secondary Chronic Nephritis. Nephritis can also be caused by other disorders including amyloidosis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) and Henoch---Schonlein Purpura (HSP), urinary tract stones, etc.

Nephritis can be caused by infections and toxins. Disorder in the immune system or infections in urinary tract or upper respiratory tract may induce immune-complex mediated Nephritis. Some kinds of medicines, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory analgesic medicines, chemotherapy medicines, gentamicin medicines, may damage the kidneys, or make renal condition even worse in those with kidney diseases.

In some other cases, Nephritis may occur due to genetic factors, such as Polycystic Kidney Disease.
