Is There A Link Between IgA Nephropathy And Chronic PancreatitisIf a patient has IgA nephropathy and has chronic pancreatitis at the same time, is there a link between them?

Kidney is the organ that can regulate our internal balance by regulating our blood condition, so its damage can cause many complications. Pancreas is an important digestive organ, and the disorder in pancreas can also lead to bad influence to our body health.

Can IgA nephropathy affect the appearance of chronic pancreatitis?

IgA nephropathy is a autoimmune kidney disease, which is caused by the accumulation of immune complex in mesangium. In fact, IgA nephropathy can progress gradually, and cause kidney failure in the end, so it can cause many disorders to our body.

On the other hand, chronic pancreatitis can be caused by many reasons, among which a common cause is hyperparathyroidism. Hyperparathyroidism can cause hypercalcemia, and high calcium can activate pancreatin, which can promote the appearance of pancreatitis. However, kidney damage often causes hyperparathyroidism, so IgA nephropathy is able to promote the appearance of chronic pancreatitis.

Can chronic pancreatitis affect the appearance of IgA nephropathy?

As we have said, IgA is an autoimmune kidney disease, and its appearance is due to the disorder of patient’s immune system.

In fact, it is hard to say how chronic pancreatitis affects the appearance of IgA nephropathy, but it does have influence on the health of kidney.

Pancreas is a digestive organ, so the problem in pancreas can influence many nutrients’ absorption, which can affect patient’s health condition obviously. While diet can make a significant influence to patient’s health condition, and it is also an important part in treating patient’s disease. Thereby, chronic pancreatitis can affect patient’s kidney health obviously if it has not been well controlled.
