IgA nephropathy is an autoimmune disorder with deposits of immunoglobulin A ( IgA) in mesangial area.Without aggressive treatment,renal function will decline progressively. What is the treatment for IgA nephropathy with renal function 38%?

IgA nephropathy with renal function 38%

Immune system is a powerful protective system of the body.When pathologic substances invade into body,immune system will be activated to produce antibodies to defeat them.After the harmful substances are eliminated,the immune system will stop functioning.

In autoimmune disorder,however,the immune system fails to function and extra antibodies,mainly IgA are produced.With blood circulation,IgA will enter glomeruli and then lodge in mesangial area.The immune deposits can trigger inflammation in kidneys.If no aggressive treatment is applied,the inflammation will worsen renal function,resulting in chronic kidney disease (CKD).

Based on renal function,CKD can be divided into 5 stages.A person with IgA nephropathy with 38% renal function is in stage 3 CKD.In this stage,as the kidneys are only impaired moderately, the patients still have high chance of reversing their kidney damage.

The conservative treatment for IgA nephropathy only include hormone and immunosuppressive agents.These medicines can suppress the inflammation to slow down renal function to some extent.However,they have no point in improving renal function.

To reverse kidney damage in IgA nephropathy,immunotherapy and Hot Compress Therapy will be applied in the whole treatment process.

Immunotherapy can correct the immune dysfunction and help the body regain normal immune system.The immune system will return to protect the body other than attack kidney tissues.

As for Hot Compress Therapy,it can activate the self-repairing and self-regenerating of the kidney tissues.When kidney structure is restored, renal function will be enhanced remarkably. If so, IgA nephropathy with renal function 38% will be reversed.
