When outside harmful substances invade into body, the immune system will produce antibodies to fight them.But in IgA Nephropathy,the immune system fails to work properly,thus causing antibody IgA to the collect in the glomeruli.The inflammation in kidneys can cause inflammation of glomeruli and gradually affect the filtering ability.When most of the glomeruli are involved,the kidneys will fail to work properly, thus resulting in Kidney Failure.
