WHAT IS DENT’S DISEASE?

 Dent disease is a chronic kidney disorder that occurs almost exclusively in males. In affected individuals, kidney problems result from damage to structures called proximal tubules. Signs and symptoms of this condition appear in early childhood and worsen over time.


The most frequent sign of Dent disease is the presence of an abnormally large amount of proteins in the urine (tubular proteinuria).Other common signs of the disorder include excess calcium in the urine (hypercalciuria), calcium deposits in the kidneys (nephrocalcinosis), and kidney stones (nephrolithiasis).

By Genetics Home Reference  

The Dent Disease Foundation's purposes are:

To raise funds to support research into the causes of the disease so we may halt its progression and find a cure;

To educate patients, the medical community and the public; and to promote communication among patients, their families and the medical community.
