What Influences the Prognosis of IgA Nephropathy

What Influences the Prognosis of IgA NephropathyEveryone wants to live a normal life, so do IgA Nephropathy patients. But if IgA Nephropathy can not be brought under control, you may have to live on various medications, dialysis or kidney transplant. What influences the prognosis of IgA Nephropathy? If we know that, we can take preventive measures and improve our quality of life. In this article, let’s a quick look.

Prognosis of IgA Nephropathy

IgA Nephropathy has an unpredictable course. For about 4%-20% patients, the disease has spontaneous remission. For about 35% patients, they go into uremia eventually. And every year there is about 1% -2% patients reach end stage renal failure (ESRD).

Factors that influence the prognosis of IgA Nephropathy

1. Gender of the patients: female patients tend to have better prognosis than male patients.

2. Age of onset: on average, the children’s prognosis is better than adults’. The prognosis for patients whose starting age is above 40 years old is usually not good.

3. Patients who have kidney function impairment tend to have gloomy prognosis.

4. Patients with less proteinuria tend to have better prognosis.

5. Patients with normal blood pressure have better prognosis than patients with high blood pressure.

6. Patients with the following pathological changes tend to worse prognosis: diffuse, proliferative glomerular damage with the formation of segmental or diffuse crescent, focal and segmental glomerular hardening or tubular atrophy, hardening arteriola, the thickening of the walls, the interstitial fibrosis and the deposits of IgA and C3.

How to improve the prognosis of IgA Nephropathy?

We can not change the gender and age, but we can control blood pressure, reduce proteinuria and relieve other symptoms. Western medicine takes effect quickly in controlling symptoms, but long-term use has many side effects. In kidney hospital China, we have many particular therapies. For IgA Nephropathy, we recommend Immunotherapy. This therapy can regulate the abnormal immune system and help you repair the damaged kidneys. With Immuotherapy, you can live a normal and full life.
