Does IgA Nephropathy Cause Anemia

2014-05-13 07:11

Does IgA Nephropathy Cause AnemiaIs anemia a symptom of IgA Nephropathy? IgA Nephropathy is a kidney disorder that leads to inflammation of glomeruli, the filtering units of the kidney that produce urine. When the kidneys are damaged, the kidney function will also be affected. Anemia in this case occurs.

The cause of anemia in IgA Nephropathy

One of the kidney function is to produce hormones that control other body functions such as blood pressure, bone maintenance, the production of red blood cells. The kidneys are damaged in IgA Nephropathy, they reduce their ability to produce a certain hormone-erythropoietin (EPO) that makes the bone marrow to produce more red blood cells. Thus, anemia happens from IgA Nephropathy later on.

The treatment for anemia in IgA Nephropathy

Synthetic EPO such as Eprex, Procrit, Epogen and Aranesp are possible to restore hemoglobin levels to normal levels, but in practical, this is never done. This is because it would greatly increase the risk of excessive blood clots and it causes high blood pressure. In addition, improving hemoglobin too much increases the chances of death. As a result, anemia can only be treated to a certain hemoglobin level. Sometimes, actual treatment may also cause anemia. For instance, when ACE inhibitors and Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers (ARB) are the most used blood pressure medications currently for the treatment of chronic kidney disease, they may also cause anemia.

Generally speaking, anemia treated by drugs are less effective. For this reason, we recommend a natural and effective treatment to alleviate anemia. This therapy is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This aims to repair injured kidneys and improve kidney function. While renal function is improved, the ability of producing hemoglobin will also be improved. Thus, more red blood cells are produced. Luckily, anemia can be treated effectively. Improving kidney function is the only root solution of anemia in IgA Nephropathy.
