You are suffering from membrano proliferative glomerulonephritis
, short for MPGN. It is a disease of the kidneys, in which there is inflammation of the glomeruli and mesangium which causes proteins
to leak out into your urine (proteinuria
As the level of protein leakage increases, so does the risk of long-lasting damage
edema of the legs
increased urination, especially at night
The treatment for this disease includes-
diuretics (to reduce the edema)
drugs for hypertension
You've been prescribed with cortisone
to reduce the inflammation in your kidneys, so that you lose less proteins.
I hope this answered your question.
