If GFR is 90 or higher, IgA Nephropathy patients usually don't have kidney-related problems. This is because kidneys can still do their work normally. Then, should patients worry about kidney failure?
It is difficult to answer. Because patients' illness condition changes from person to person, their prognosis is also quite different. If patients find their kidney problem early, their kidney function is more likely to keep in high level. GFR 90 indicates stage 1 in which kidneys can still do their work perfectly. Therefore, this is the best time to reverse patients' kidney damage and treat IgA Nephropathy from the root.
If patients take effective treatments timely, the incidence of complete clinical remission will increase. Otherwise, IgA Nephropathy may progress into kidney failure gradually. If you happen to have Stage 1 IgA Nephropathy, you are suggested to modify your diet and lifestyle and develop a correct treatment plan according to your medical condition change.
1. Food Therapy: Right foods can help manage IgA Nephropathy patients' symptoms and discomforts, while wrong foods may even stimulate some health problems. If you haven't arranged a scientific diet plan, you can consult the doctor online or leave your illness description below.
2. Quit unhealthy habits: In the daily life, some unhealthy habits will impede patients' ability to fight against kidney disease. For example, if you are used to smoking or drinking alcohol, you should stop them.
3. Take effective treatment to rebuild kidney structure: Immunotherapy is one therapy that can remove immune complexes, cleanse the internal environment, repair damaged kidney cells and prevent the recurrence of IgA Nephropathy. If you would like, you can try this therapy with doctor's guidance.
