Why Does IgA Nephropathy Create In Body Even After Kidney TransplantWhy does IgA Nephropathy (IgAN) relapse again even after kidney transplant? Most people think kidney transplantation is the final treatment for IgA Nephropathy. As long as you do transplant, it is impossible for IgA Nephropathy to relapse. Actually, many people experience recurrence of IgA Nephropathy after transplantation. What is the reason of IgA Nephropathy recurrence?

Why Does IgA Nephropathy relapse again even after transplantation?

As we know, IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disorder, in which the patients’ immune system attacks the healthy tissues and cells.

Normally, when antigens, foreign pathological stuffs, invade into the body, the relative antibodies are activated by immune system to defeat them. The immune complexes of antigens and antibodies will be discharged out of the body through systemic circulation.

However, when there is disorder of immune system, the immune complexes will build up in blood. This will cause the immune inflammatory reaction and then do damages on kidneys. If the filtration function of filtration membrane has been damaged, then blood in urine and proteinuria occur.

As for kidney transplant, although the diseased kidney is replaced by a healthy kidney, the patients’ immune system is not regulated yet. Thus, the patients’ immune system may attack the transplanted kidney again. As a result, the recurrence of IgA Nephropathy occurs.

Is there any other remedy other than kidney transplant?

Yes, there is. Immunotherapy helps rebuild a new immune system, which can use immune system to prevent the attack to kidneys. Immunotherapy has 6 steps, including immune diagnosis, immune clearance, immune tolerance, immune adjustment, immune protection, immune blockage. Of course, the 6 parts are changeable due to different medical condition. Immunotherapy is able to regulate immune disorder, which can prevent the future relapse of IgA Nephropathy.
