Hi,

Was this diagnosis of a kidney inflammation given by a physician?

What urinary symptoms did she present? Did she present with blood in her urine?

How is your friend's blood pressure?

Was this monitored?

Was her kidney function determined?

The presence of a kidney inflammation when associated with  hemoptysis ( medical term for coughing blood ) may be due to a Pulmonary Renal Syndrome( PRS). Pulmonary Renal Syndrome is usually caused by several conditions.Among these are : Wegener's granulomatosis, Goodpasture's syndrome,SLE , cardiac problems and certain medications. The causes of PRS are commonly connective tissue and autoimmune diseases.

Was your friend evaluated along this line?
