What Is The Current Treatment For IgA NephropathyWhat is the current treatment for IgA Nephropathy? IgA Nephropathy (IgAN) is a very common glomerulonephritis worldwide. Although there is no complete cure for IgA Nephropathy, the current treatment is to slow the progression of IgA Nephropathy and ease patients’ symptoms such as high blood pressure, proteinuria and hematuria. Here we will introduce the current treatment for IgA Nephropathy.

What is IgA Nephropathy?

We have mentioned that IgA Nephropathy is a common primary glomerular disease. It occurs when the antibody called IgA immunoglobin deposits in the glomerular. It is characterized by the proliferation of glomerular mesangial cells and accumulation of the extracellular matrix. Over time, immune complexes can cause local inflammation, leading to further kidney damage. With IgA Nephropathy, kidneys fail to discharge metabolism waste, excessive water and electrolytes from your blood. These symptoms may cause a decline of patients’ life quality. Therefore, it is important to take effective treatment to control the symptoms and treat IgA Nephropathy.

What is the current treatment for IgA Nephropathy?

We use immunotherapy to treat IgA Nephropathy. This therapy is a combination of Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine. Various western medicines are used to control symptoms and they show quick and obvious therapeutic effects. However, the root cause of IgA Nephropathy is immune complexes. Therefore, to avoid further kidney damage, we need to improve immunity and remove immune complexes in mesangial area. In Immunotherapy, when patients’ illness condition gets stable, Chinese medicines are used to achieve the purpose. The Chinese medicines have functions of dilating blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and removing blood stasis, and providing nutrients for damaged kidneys. What’s more important, this therapy can stop immune reaction and remove immune complexes out of the blood. This prevents further damage on kidneys. Immunotherapy is a natural and current treatment for IgA Nephropathy and it has helped many patients get rid of sufferings in kidney disease.
