If this inflammation cause RPGN (Rapidly Progressive Glomerulonephritis), how can it be treated?

Get facts on RPGN

Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis is usually characterized by a rapid decease in the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of at least 50% over a short period, from a few days to 3 months.

Rapidly Progressive Glomerulonephritis is classified pathologically into three categories, as follows:

(1) anti-GBM antibody disease (approximately 3% of cases),;

(2) immune complex disease (45% of cases);

(3) pauci-immune disease (50% of cases). Immunologic classification is based on the presence or absence of ANCAs. The disorders are also classified based on their clinical presentation.

Immune complex might include Lupus Nephritis, IgA Nephropathy and other primary renal diseases.

Treatment for RPGN caused by IgA Nephropathy

The goal of treatment should be relieving symptoms and repairing kidney function. Specific treatment depends on the underlying disease process. For example, plasmapheresis, corticosteroids, and cytotoxic drugs. Despite early treatment, some patients still develop into Kidney Failure and need dialysis or kidney transplant.

There are some natural therapies for RPGN and IgA Nephropathy patients.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

This therapy is an innovation of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The Chinese herbs are micronized and soaked with medical fluid. With osmotic device, the effective ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions directly. They can improve blood circulation and fight against inflammation. Therefore, kidneys can get enough blood and oxygen for repairing damaged renal tissues. As long as kidney function can be improved, all symptoms can be completely alleviated.

Blood Pollution Therapy

Based on so many years of researches, our experts found that the root cause of kidney damage is polluted blood. If medicines or therapies can purify the blood, many systems and organs can be protected. During the process of Blood Pollution Therapy, the purifying methods and medicines used may be different based on the patients’ cases. This therapy can treat RPGN and IgA Nephropathy from the root, and becomes more and more popular among kidney disease patients.
