Can Prostatitis Cause Chronic Nephritis?

Prostatitis generally does not cause nephritis. Prostatitis is an infectious urinary disease, and immune-mediated inflammatory reactions mainly cause nephritis. The main symptoms for patients with prostatitis are frequent urination, urgent urination, bifurcation of urination, not finishing urination, etc. In contrast, patients with nephritis are mainly characterized by edema, hypertension, proteinuria, and hematuria.

Under normal circumstances, chronic prostatitis does not cause nephritis. Nephritis is mainly divided into glomerulonephritis and renal interstitial nephritis. Chronic prostatitis may cause pyelonephritis, but it does not cause glomerulonephritis. Because chronic prostatitis is an infection caused by bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, and the prolongation time is long. 
If there is a local infection in the prostate, there may be bacteria in the prostate fluid secreted by the prostate. Prostate fluid is part of semen. Urinary tract infection may occur when semen is discharged through the urethra. If the immunity is low, bacteria can cause pyelonephritis retrograde. If the pathogen can invade the ureter and even the renal pelvis, it will cause acute pyelonephritis. If it is not completely cured in the acute stage, it will be converted from acute nephritis to chronic pyelonephritis.
Chronic pyelonephritis is also a disease type of nephritis. So if chronic prostatitis has a special pathogen infection, it will cause pyelonephritis by retrogradely invading the urinary system of the previous unit. However, this situation is rare, but glomerulonephritis is mainly related to heredity and autoimmune, and infection is unlikely to cause it.
Chronic prostatitis is often an inflammatory reaction caused by sedentary, holding urine, spicy and stimulating diet, excessive sex or masturbation, and more than 90% are sterile inflammation. Clinically, chronic prostatitis is non-bacterial prostatitis, mainly due to the patient's poor living habits, resulting in inflammation of local congestive edema of the prostate, which will not cause nephritis at this time. 
Nephritis is mainly due to problems with its immune system, which causes the deposition of immune complexes in the kidneys and causes inflammatory reactions. The pathogenesis of the two treatment plans and examination methods are completely different.
In a small number of patients with acute prostatitis, the swollen prostate compresses the urethra, resulting in urethral stricture, leading to poor urination and even failure to urinate. If not dealt with in time, it may lead to acute kidney failure. However, generally active treatment will not cause kidney disease if the urine flows smoothly. Chronic prostatitis does typically not cause urethral stenosis, so it has little impact on the kidneys. 
Patients with chronic prostatitis mainly show frequent, urgent, and painful urination. After urinating, white secretion will also flow out of the urethral orifice, and patients may also have sexual dysfunction, including erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and frequent spermatorrhea.
Patients can do proper physical exercise in daily life to promote and improve blood circulation, enhance the body's disease resistance, and promote disease recovery. Develop good sexual habits and avoid irregular sexual life, erection without ejaculation, interruption of sexual intercourse and other bad conditions. And avoid long-distance cycling and sedentary. Regular exercise should be carried out to relax and promote blood circulation in the perineum and other parts. In daily life, you must avoid cold stimulation and keep warm.
Patients with prostatitis can use antibiotics according to the doctor's advice and actual situations. When using antibiotics in daily life, you should follow doctors' advice. Take sufficient drugs and treatment procedures to avoid increasing or reducing drug dosage or stopping drugs by yourself, and prevent drug resistance to pathogenic bacteria. Care should also be taken not to abuse antibiotics to avoid killing the normal flora in the body. In the acute stage, patients should be informed to stay in bed to ensure adequate sleep, which is conducive to the early absorption and subsidence of inflammation. 
Pay attention to personal hygiene daily, and bathe and change underwear frequently. Patients with chronic prostatitis can take Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill to clear away heat and detoxify, reduce inflammation and relieve pain and symptoms. You can also try prostate massage and physiotherapy once weekly, which can reduce local inflammation, promote absorption, and improve blood circulation. If necessary, ask a psychologist for psychotherapy.
