Question

Acute glomerulonephritis (GN) is sudden inflammation of the glomeruli, most commonly a result of a streptococcal infection that causes the body to attack its own tissue.  The damage to the filtration membrane increases permeability of the membrane for proteins and larger components.  Describe the abnormal components of the urine for patients with GN and how these changes in filtrate will impact Tubular Reabsorption.
