In order to cleanse them, your body will launch inflammatory response. Short-term inflammation is beneficial, but long-term inflammation can impair the kidneys. When you have infection, the amount of immune complexes in your blood will increase and then inflammation occurs again. This may add insult to injury, worsening your kidney disease.
