Treatment for IgA Nephropathy

2014-04-03 07:59

Treatment for IgA NephropathyIgA nephropathy (IgAN) is a common glomerulonephritis. Though there is no cure for this disease, some treatments could help patients preserve kidney function slowing disease progression. This article is about treatment for IgA Nephropathy. According to different conditions of patients, there are different treatments for them.

If patients with normal renal function, normotension, only minor urinary abnormalities, such as isolated microhaematuria with/without low grade proteinuria, there is a general consensus that specific treatment is unnecessary but keep them under periodic reviews. Hematuria is generally a consequence of immunological activity, but may not of progressive disease.

Patients may develop into a more severe disease as their protein excretion is above 1 g/day. Urine protein-to-creatinine ratio could estimate protein excretion more accurate. Therapy with angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor or angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) could help lower the protein excretion. Degree of proteinuria is the standard to decide whether ACEI and ARB are applied. ACEI and ARB can reduce intraglomerular pressure and improve the size-selective properties of the glomerular capillary wall. Angiotensin inhibitors also lower the blood pressure.

LDL cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease, so kidney disease patients with elevated LDL cholesterol should think about therapy for lipid-lowering, like statin therapy.

Omega-3 fatty acids have the possible effect of alleviating ongoing renal inflammation and glomerulosclerosis, both being marks of progressive renal disease. We can get omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil. A benefit of omega-3 fatty acids has not been clearly established. However, fish oil can be tried in patients with risk factors for progression.

Corticosteroid medications suppress the immune response to reduce the IgA deposits, but corticosteroid medications have lots of side effects. They are less use in patients with stable or slowly progressive disease.

Tonsillectomy, usually in combination with some immunosuppressive therapy, is associated with improved renal outcomes in patients with IgA nephropathy and relatively mild renal injury.

In most cases, this disease does not affect normal life. You can consult your doctor choosing optical treatment for you.

As for you own illness conditions, you can get some guidance related to diet, exercise, medicines or some natural remedies. The online consultation service is free. Please remember to leave your email address, or phone number so that we can contact you and help you!
Please leave the patient's FULL name in case of a duplicate, and to make our doctor give timely response and help.

Our Treatment Effect

Mouse over the picture, it can be magnified.

You can take a look at this patient's report. His creatinine was 1028 and urea level was 39.7 on 2018-12-11; creatinine level was reduced to 331 and urea was 16.1 on 2019-1-5. After about 25 days' treatment in our hospital, his creatinine level was reduced by 697, and urea was reduced by 23.6. Hope his condition gets better and better.

Say goodbye to dialysis

Our Treatment effect

Proteinuria is a common symptom of kidney disease

Mouse over the picture, it can be magnified.

It can make your urine foamy. Although it does not make you feel uncomfortable, it can impair your renal function and make your kidney disease worse. Conventional treatment such as steroids and immunosuppressants can hardly make it negative. In our hospital, systemic Chinese medicine treatment can help you turn it negative. Look at this picture, bubbles in urine become less and less with our treatment going on.
