IgA Nephropathy affects many people’s life all over the world. If you are just diagnosed with this glomerular disorder, you must be concerned about the progression of IgA Nephropathy. Well then, how will IgA Nephropathy progress?
The onset of IgA Nephropathy
Its onset has a close link with immune disorder. When too much immunoglobulin A (IgA) is produced and can’t be eliminated out by circulatory systems, it may accumulate in kidneys easily, inducing IgA Nephropathy. Recurrent hematuria, swelling, proteinuria, high blood pressure, and so on, are common symptoms of this kidney disease.
What is the progression of IgA Nephropathy?
In clinic, IgA Nephropathy progresses differently from person to person. It is reported that 4%~20% of this disease can get spontaneous remission, while about 1%~2% of cases will have end stage kidney failure. According to lifespan survey, 10 years’ kidney survival rate is 80%~90%. This means IgA Nephropathy in most cases will progress into end stage kidney failure slowly. Therefore, patients should take prompt action to manage their kidney problem and improve their prognosis.
How to prevent the progression of IgA Nephropathy?
According to the characteristics of this disease, we would like to recommend the following suggestions to achieve this goal.
- Inhibit the inflammatory reactions within kidneys: It is inflammatory reactions caused by immune complexes that causes kidney filters to be damaged gradually. According to patients; medical condition, doctors will prescribe some medicines like steroids and immunosupressants to prevent further kidney damage.
- Save damaged kidney cells: If patients’ kidney cells are only damaged, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is worth a try for them. This is because this therapy can not only provide enough nutrition and oxygen for inherent kidney cells but also prompt their self-curative ability. Finally, patients can find their kidney function increases gradually.
Now, we have had basic information about this kidney disease. Anything unclear, you can consult online.
