Our Experienced Social Security Disability Lawyer Helps Clients With Chronic Glomerulonephritis Secure Much-Needed SSDI Benefits 

Chronic kidney inflammation, also known as chronic glomerulonephritis or CG, is a leading cause of long-term illness and death in Louisiana. This condition produces wide-ranging symptoms that can significantly affect your ability to engage in substantial gainful activity. If chronic kidney inflammation prevents you from working, you might be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). CG isn’t included in the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Blue Book, but there are pathways to eligibility based on related conditions. Let Phillip M. Hendry Law’s experienced Louisiana Social Security disability lawyer be your trusted ally as you navigate this complex process. Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss how we can assist you with your SSDI claim.

Chronic glomerulonephritis (CG) is the persistent inflammation of the kidneys’ filtering tissues, the glomeruli. These tiny structures are vital to filtering waste and excess fluids from the blood. However, when inflamed, the glomeruli’s filtering ability is less effective, leading to a buildup of toxins in the body. As CG progresses, symptoms such as swelling, high blood pressure, fatigue, muscle cramps, nausea, and vomiting can become more prevalent, substantially impacting your quality of life. 

Moreover, the relentless nature of CG symptoms can make it challenging to maintain regular employment, especially in jobs that demand physical exertion or require standing for long periods. If you can’t work due to chronic kidney inflammation, we can help you explore your SSDI eligibility and fight for the benefits you deserve.

Qualifying for SSDI for Chronic Kidney Inflammation

To qualify for SSDI, you must have a medically determinable impairment (MDI) that is severe enough to prevent work and has lasted—or is expected to last—for at least a year or result in death. Though many cases of CG can satisfy both the severity and duration requirements, it isn’t included in the SSA Blue Book, a medical guide that lists qualifying conditions and the criteria you must meet for approval. Since you can’t “meet” a Blue Book listing, you must, instead, equal one by providing evidence to prove that your CG is as impairing as a Blue Book condition that qualifies for SSDI. 

For example, with CG, you might meet the eligibility criteria for chronic kidney disease, autoimmune disorders, or other underlying conditions resulting in functional limitations and an inability to work. Proving that you qualify for SSDI requires thorough medical documentation, including diagnostic test results, treatment records, and physician statements detailing the severity of your CG symptoms and their impact on your ability to work.
