It's type 2. IgG is involved.

Remember this way:

Type 1 - IgE is in the business.
Type 2 - IgG is in the business.
Type 3 - IgM is in the business.
Type 4 - T cells are in the business.

Yes! its true!

It is characterized by proteinuria (>3.5g/day),
hypoalbuminemia,

Pitting edema!

Nephritic comes with HEMATURIA! RBCs
