Kidney Failure and IgA, Swollen in Feet and Legs: What Treatment Should I Take NowHi, dear friend:

Very glad to get your e-mail from our mail box, kidneycares@hotmail.com, and it is our pleasure to help.

You said you have kidney failure, which is caused by IgA Nephropathy. IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease, and the loss of protein in urine is one of the most common symptoms. Your albumin is 3.5, is means your have proteinuria 3+ (2.0-4.0g/L), and there are lots of protein leakage out from your damaged kidneys.

When there are too much protein leaked out from kidneys, it will cause low protein in blood and the plasma osmotic pressure will get decreased. This will cause the fluid flow out into surrounding tissues and lead to fluid retention or edema in body. Although you are on dialysis, but the swelling cant be controlled effectively, so you need to try some other treatments.

From above, we can know that the severe swollen in feet and legs are mainly caused by your severe kidney damage, so you need to take treatment that can restore your kidney function. Once your kidneys can work well, your severe symptoms can be controlled from root.

In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we use the Immunotherapy and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to remedy your kidney failure due to IgA Nephropathy.

The two treatment can help regulate your immune system and prevent further damage to kidneys, and it can also remove the toxins and wastes out into blood. Then it can supply more nutrition and oxygen to kidneys, which can stimulate the self-healing ability of kidney cells and restore kidney function.

Through systemic treatment, it you can improve your kidney function and control the symptoms from root. In addition, once the kidney function is improved higher than 20%, you can even stop dialysis. So, the Chinese treatment will be a good choice for your case to get better prognosis.
