The function of glomeruli on kidney is to bring blood to the kidney nephrons.

glumeronephritis is a kidney disease - an inflammatation of the glomeruli. Glomeruli are very small blood vessels in the kidneys.

Bright's Disease affects the kidney, including the nephrons and glomeruli. However, Bright's Disease is but one of many which affect the glomeruli of the kidney.

The glomeruli is a spherical structure located in the olfactory bulb of the brain where synapses form between the terminals of the olfactory nerve and thedendrites of mitral, periglomerular and tufted cells.

it located in the kidney. part of the uriniferous, nephron

Each kidney contains approximately 500,000 glomeruli

"Bright's Disease"GlumerulonephritisGlomerulonephritis

The renal glomeruli filters the blood in the kidneys

It is a progressive kidney disease caused by damage to the capillaries in the kidneys glomeruli.

Glomerulonephritis, also known as Bright's Disease, is a type of kidney disease caused by inflammation of of the glomeruli that causes red blood cells and proteins to leak into the urine. (glomerul/o=glomeruli, nephr=kidney, -itis=inflammation)

Lot of fluid is filtered out in the glomeruli. Almost 180 litres of fluid per day is filtered in glomeruli. So to maintain the blood pressure in afferent arterioles, you need to have efferent arterioles with less diameter.

Glomerulonephritis refers to inflammation of the glomeruli, a ball-like structure in the kidney.

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis is scar tissue that forms in parts of the kidney called glomeruli. The glomeruli serve as filters, helping rid the body of unnecessary or harmful substances."Focal" means that some of the glomeruli become scarred, while others remain normal. "Segmental" means that only part of an individual glomerulus is damaged. Men and boys are at a slightly larger risk than women and girls. This condition causes 10-15% of all cases of nephrotic syndrome.

The force of blood passing through the filtration units (glomeruli) in the kidney.

Nephritis is the inflammation of the kidneys. The tubules, glomeruli, and interstitial tissues can also become inflamed when a person has this condition.

The glomeruli of the kidney is - like a coffee filter - a membrane with holes in it, but the holes are smaller in the kidneys.

About half the people who have systemic lupus will develop kidney disease. There are 5 types( 6 if you count no disease as a type) and the type is determined by a kidney biopsy. Inflammation in the glomeruli, the little filters in the kidney, prevent the kidneys from catching protein and returning it to the blood stream. Protein in the urine means the glomeruli are not able to do this.

filtration takes place only at glomeruli part of nephron and nowhere else.

glomerulonephritis, this is the type of disease caused by inflammation of the glomeruli that causes red blood cells and proteins to the leaks into the urine.

Glomerular kidney disease-- Disease of the kidney that affects the glomeruli, the part of the kidney that filters certain substances out of the blood.

glomerulonephritis is inflammation of the glomeruli in the kidneys however, pyelonephritis is inflammation of the kidney(s). They are both due to infection.

Nephrons are the basic functional unit of the kidneys. They take in blood through an afferent arteriole and filter it inside the Bowman's capsule in a series of capillaries called glomeruli. It is the walls of the glomeruli that contain the membrane, more accurately called semi-permeable membrane, that removed the serum from the blood to produce the filtrate that will eventually become urine.

Here efferent arteriole word is used indicating 'portal' ciculation. It is should be diagonally apposite to afferent arteiole. With most of the 'fluid' filtered through glomeruli. Numbering about 1 million in each kidny. ( kidney filters about 180 liters/ day of fluid filtered through glomeruli and reabsorb more than 180 liters of it. )
