2013-10-02 15:38

Membranous nephropathy is a disease in which the filters in kidneys called glomeruli become inflamed and thickened.It is a slowly progressive disease and it eventually may cause kidneys to fail.Kidney transplant is one of treatment options for people with kidney failure caused by membranous nephropathy. However,membranous nephropathy is very likely to recure to the new kidney.What is the treatment for membranous nephropathy if kidney transplant fails?

Why does membranous nephropathy recur after kidney transplant?

Membranous nephropathy is a group of conditions called glomerulonephritis.It is an immune-medicated disorder,in which the immune system damages the kidney by mistakes.

Kidney Transplant is a procedure in which the diseased kidney is replaced with a healthy kidney.However,the immune dysfunction can not be corrected.As a result,the abnormal immune system will attack the new kidney again, thus resulting in relapse of membranous nephropathy.

Treatment for membranous nephropathy after kidney transplant fails

If the transplant fails to work,Dialysis generally will be prescribed.It can filter blood and filter out wastes and excess fluid from body to keep the patients alive.Some patients may choose to have another kidney transplant, but the recurrence rate of membranous nephropathy will become higher.

Is there any other treatment for membranous nephropathy after transplant fails?

Blood Purification and immunotherapy are recommended to treat membranous nephropathy if kidney transplant fails.Blood purification can remove the wastes and immune complexes from blood,thus reliving symptoms and improving the overall condition.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy can improve renal function by restoring the impaired kidney tissues.This therapy can activate the self-healing system in body to regenerate impaired kidney tissues,thus resulting in renal function improvement.
