Details: My girlfriend has IgA Nephropathy and recurrent hematuria. Is IgA Nephropathy life-threatening?

Expert Answer

IgA Nephropathy is one autoimmune disorder, and it occurs when extra IgA accumulates in kidneys and induce inflammation. If uncontrolled effectively, IgA Nephropathy will progress into end stage kidney failure gradually. Since your girlfriend has recurrent hematuria, it means it is difficult for her to manage her illness condition.

In fact, IgA Nephropathy can get remission spontaneously in some cases, while some patients have kidney failure eventually. Hematuria is just one factor to affect patients’ prognosis. If uncontrolled effectively, your girlfriend’s kidney disease may become life-threatening.

If you want to save her kidneys and prevent severe complications, you should bring her to accept effective treatments timely. If you trust Chinese medicine, you can try Immunotherapy.

This therapy focuses on treating kidney disease caused by immune disorder, because it can remove immune complexes from the body and repair damaged kidney cells effectively. As long as the pathogenic factors are removed, patients can find their IgA Nephropathy is damaged very well.

Besides, she should also modify her diet plan and lifestyle actively along with her illness condition. Any question about these therapies? Tell us directly.
