Diagnosed With IgA Nephropathy, Have Edema In Ankle And Less Kidney Function. Any Solution?

2014-06-17 02:32


In May 2009, I was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy. Also my edema in my lower legs did not get better with a second pair of stockings, it only worsened. I continued to let my doctors know, but nothing was done. With time going on, my kidney function continues to decline. What I would like to know is could my kidney disease have been picked up earlier with better follow-ups?


Diagnosed With IgA Nephropathy, Have Edema In Ankle And Less Kidney Function. Any Solution?Hi and thanks for the query. For the better treatment, you should know the pathology of IgA Nephropathy.

What is IgA Nephropathy?

IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune kidney disease that occurs when IgA- a protein that helps the body fight infections-settles in the kidneys. After many years, the IgA deposits may cause the kidneys to leak blood and sometimes protein in the urine. Many IgA Nephropathy patients leak blood in the urine. Others may leak both blood and protein in the urine. If too much protein leaks into urine, the hands and feet can swell. After some years, it may progress kidney failure. Symptoms of kidney failure include swelling in the hands and feet, nausea, fatigue, headache and sleep problems.

Is there any solution for IgA Nephropathy?

Protein leakage is caused as glomeruli are damaged and cannot perform properly. Thereby, repairing damaged glomeruli is very necessary. Besides, improving kidney function is also needed. As for this point, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can be used. It is on the basis of Chinese herbal medicines. The active ingredients in herbs can active injured kidney intrinsic cells to work again. In this way, some damaged glomeruli can be repaired effectively. Also the herbs have the function of dilating blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular and stopping renal fibrosis so as to prevent further kidney damage and protect residual kidney function. With improved kidney function, not only edema in ankle but also high blood in urine, high blood pressure and other kidney symptoms can all be alleviated effectively.
