Causes and Treatment for Proteinuria in IgA Nephropathy

2015-03-22 16:00

Causes and Treatment for Proteinuria in IgA NephropathyIgA Nephropathy, also known as Berger’s disease, is a kidney disease that occurs when antibody called immunoglobulin A (IgA) lodges in your kidneys. Proteinuria is a common symptom in IgA Nephropathy patients.

Cause of proteinuria in IgA Nephropathy

Protein is a macromolecular substance that will be absorbed by the healthy kidneys. When kidneys are damaged, especially the glomeruli, protein will leaks out of the kidneys. When the protein amount is more than 3.5g/24 hours, it is called proteinuria.

Kidney damage is caused by the inflammation on glomeruli due to deposition of immunoglobulin A.

Treatment for proteinuria

Treatment may be different in each stages of kidney disease. In general, treatment for this problem may include:

-Reduce protein intake in diet. The recommended protein intake is 0.6g to 0.8g per kg of body weight. High quality protein foods like egg white, lean meat, fish and milk are OK to be consumed.

-Drugs. Drugs are sometimes prescribed, especially in people with diabetes and/or high blood pressure. These may come from two classes of drugs: ACE inhibitors (angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors); ARBs (angiotensin receptor blockers).

-Improve renal function. This is not specially for treating proteinuria, but aims at solving the underlying problem. As long as the kidneys can work adequately, protein can be absorbed and proteinuria will be relieved.

To achieve that goal, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which is an external application used on bilateral Shenshu acupoint. The key effect of this method is to improve blood circulation by expanding blood vessels, fighting against inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes. Therefore, the kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged renal tissues. This is how our treatment improve kidney function.
