2013-08-20 09:14

IgA Nephropathy or Berger’s Disease is a self-immunity disease. IgA refers to Immunoglobin A. Due to disorder of your immune system, IgA produced by your body will be abnormal. When they combine with antigen, immune complex will be formed. In this case, some immune complexes will deposit in mesganial area, causing abnormal inflammation of kidney. For this reason, surrounding renal intrinsic cells will be damaged. In this case, hematuria or blood in urine is often seen. Of course, many symptoms also occur, like protein in urine, infection and high blood pressure and so on. Thus, what treatments can be used to IgA Nephropathy.

1. Common treatment

If the gross hematuria is caused by upper respiratory infection, it can be treated using effective antibiotics. And if the person has high blood pressure, he or she should take timely measurement to treat high blood pressure, or high blood pressure may accelerate the development of IgA Nephropathy.

2. Immunity regulation 

In IgA Nephropathy, it is the disorder of immune system that has caused the immune complexes occurrence and damages on the kidneys. In this case, western medicines and treatment techniques are applied to maintain the symptoms in a stable state. In immune regulation, traditional chinese medicines are used to regulate immune system, increase immunity, repair your injured kidneys and improve your kidney function.

3. Immuinty clearance 

Advanced blood purification techniques are used to remove abnormalities and other wastes in bloodstream. In order to clear away immune complexes, you can use plasma exchange or immunoadsorption to remove immune complexes and auto-antibodies out of the bloodstream. In addition to IgA Nephropathy, in some types of kidney diseases like lupus nephritis and glomerulonephritis, there are also large amount of antibodies that deposit at renal capillaries, glomerular basilar membrane and other kidney tissues and can lead to acute kidney failure or life-threatening to the patients. In early stage of disease, blood plasma exchange or immunoadsorption can save life and come to short-term treatment effects.

The common treatment is a basic treatment and is targeted to just treat the symptoms, which fails to regulate your immunity from root. However, immunity regulation and immunity clearance can not only improve your immunity but also block the inflammation reaction which prevent inflammation reaction from further damaging your kidney function.
