Can IgA Nephropathy Cause HeadachesIgA Nephropathy patients frequently suffer from headaches apparently connected to their disease. Here we will tell you the causes of headache and how to treat headache.

1. Anemia

When kidneys get something wrong, its ability of producing erythropoietin(EPO) will be affected. That is to say, kidneys cannot produce enough EPO which is responsible for secreting red blood cells. In addition, dangerous levels of uremic toxins will build up in the body, which will shorten the life span of platelet and red blood cells. Therefore, anemia is very likely to occur in IgA Nephropathy, thus leading to anemic headache.

IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune kidney disease. With healthy immune system, antibody will be produced when antigen invades our body so as to prevent damages on our body organs. And the antibodies will be removed out of the body by the kidneys. However, now the immune system gets something wrong and it will continue to produce wastes and toxins, but kidneys fail to remove them out of the body completely. Therefore, inflammation response will lead to kidney damage. With the development of kidney damage, more and more toxins and wastes will build in our body. They can circulate with blood.
