Gastrointestinal Infection and IgA NephropathyGastrointestinal infection is a common symptom of IgA Nephropathy. Many of the patients are suffering from this disease. The same as them, you must want to know how to treat or prevent gastrointestinal infection in IgA Nephropathy. Then, you should know the relationship between them.

Will IgA Nephropathy lead to gastrointestinal infection?

The answer is “yes”. IgA Nephropathy is an auto-immune disorder of the body. IgA refers to Immunoglobulin A, which is an antibody. For some certain reasons, IgA deposits inside the glomeruli of the kidney. These glomeruli normally filter waste and excess water from the blood and send them to the bladder as urine. However, the IgA protein prevents this filtering process. This may lead to the following: Blood and protein in the urine, swelling in the hands and feet, hypertension and infections of the upper respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract (stomach or bowel) or breast.

How to deal with gastrointestinal infection due to IgA Nephropathy?

- Antibiotics. Antibiotics can relive the symptoms like stomach pain, nausea, poor appetite, vomiting or even diarrhea. The curative effect is quick and significant. Even though I list antibiotics firstly, it does not mean that antibiotic is the best choice. You should be aware of the side effects. These medications should be taken in moderation as a higher dosage may impair digestion and inhibit absorption of essential nutrients that the body needs. Consult your doctor for the right dose.

- A restricted diet. Diet plays an assistant role of treating gastrointestinal infection. What you should avoid are fried and processed foods and eliminate fast-food meals, dairy products, and raw or unpasteurized foods. On the contrary, what you should follow is drinking enough water to clean your body. Drinking a cup of ginger tea is also a good choice, as it is natural and contains some antibacterial properties, which can relieve gastrointestinal infection symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort and constipation.

- Immunotherapy. It helps rebuild the underlying immune system and uses the immune system to fight against the kidney damage. Therefore, it is usually recommended to treat IgA Nephropathy. Once the kidney is treated well, it will function adequately. The excessive immunoglobulin A can be filtered, due to glomerular filtration rate (GFR) increase. As a result, gastrointestinal infection can be managed well.
