Can IgA Nephropathy with Proteinuria Be TreatedIgA Nephropathy, also known as Berger’s Disease, is an autoimmune disease. It occurs when antibody called immunoglobulin A (IgA) lodges on kidneys. As a result, inflammation happens, causing reduction of kidney function. Can IgA Nephropathy with proteinuria be treated?

What causes protein leakage in urine with IgA Nephropathy?

Your kidneys help prevent the loss of things that your body needs, like protein. Very little or no protein normally appears in the urine. If you have protein in urine with IgA Nephropathy, it is because the kidney’s filters, namely, glomeruli, have been damaged by the inflammation. As a result, protein leaks into the urine.

Do not worry! Proteinuria in IgA Nephropathy can be well treated.

Treatment for proteinuria in IgA Nephropathy

Your treatment may include:

1. Medications:

-Hypertensive drugs. Commonly used medicines include ACE inhibitors and ARB. They are reported to be effective in reducing proteinuria in chronic kidney disease patients.

-Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we have a holistic treatment including oral medicines and external herbal therapies. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is widely used. Patients just need to lie on the bed with two medical small packages under the kidney areas (Shenshu acupoints). With osmotic device, the effective ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions directly. They can dilate blood vessels, reduce inflammations and degrade extracellular, thus increasing the whole blood circulation. Then, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen supply to work normally. This therapy can not only relieve symptoms, but also can treat IgA Nephropathy from the root cause.
