How Do IgA Nephropathy Patients Deal With Numbness In ArmNumbness in arm is a common complication of IgA Nephropathy. Why will numbness in arm happen? Is there anything that can help IgA Nephropathy patients to deal with this arm numbness?

1. What causes numbness in IgA Nephropathy?

Toxin accumulation

Kidney function in IgA Nephropathy patients has been damaged, so its ability to discharge toxins has declined so that toxins will accumulate in your body. Toxins will attack your nervous system. This will lead to body’s numbness including numbness in arm.

Excess potassium in the body

IgA Nephropathy patients are also easy to suffer from high potassium in the blood. When kidney function is damaged, excess potassium cannot be efficiently removed and cause hyperkalemia. Too much potassium in the body can cause numbness in the arm.


When you have IgA Nephropathy, you often experience anemia which means there are not enough red blood cells to transport oxygen. If your arms are lack of oxygen, the nerve will be compressed and then the sensation in the affected area will be cut off, leading to numbness.

Side effect of medications

Numbness in the arm can also be a side effect of the medications such as beta-blockers and diuretics.
