Question: Hi. My younger sister, 24 years old is suffering from end stage renal disease (ESRD) due to IgA Nephropathy. Her current GFR is 17 and creatinine is 3.1 along with hypertension. Can you please help?

ESRD due to IgA Nephropathy, GFR 17 and Creatinine 3.1Answer: According to GFR, chronic kidney disease is divided into five stages.

Stage 1: GFR>=90

Stage 2: 60<=GFR<=89

Stage 3: 30<=GFR<=59

Stage 4: 15<=GFR<=29

Stage 5: GFR<15

From what you said, your sister is not in ESRD. She is still in stage 4, and she still has chance to improve renal function so as to avoid dialysis and kidney transplant. Now she has hypertension. High blood pressure is a factor that can make kidney condition worse, so she must bring it under control. Does she have proteinuria? It is also a factor that add insult to injury.

Besides conventional treatment, she needs a treatment to deal with the excess IgA immune complexes in the body. IgA Nephropathy is associated with excessive IgA immune complexes depositing on the kidneys. Those immune complexes trigger inflammatory reactions in the kidneys, which over time can impair renal function. Therefore, the key to controlling IgA Nephropathy well is not only to inhibit renal inflammation, but also clearing those immune complexes, otherwise, it is likely for your disease to get relapse.

In Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital, Toxin-Removing Treatment is often used. It makes use of various therapies, such as Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and so on to dissolve IgA immune complexes and remove them out of body, and restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. Moreover, it can dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so as to improve renal ischemia and anoxia. With good blood flow, essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery.

After about one week’s treatment, she will see massive cotton-like substances appearing in the urine, which are those wastes being passed out.

After about half month’s treatment, her hypertension will come down, and creatinine level will be reduced at least 10%.

After about one month’s treatment, her disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved.

All in all, your sister should grasp her time for treatment if she does not want to do dialysis and kidney transplant. For more information on IgA Nephropathy treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
