Which Stage of IgA Nephropathy Are You in

When diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy, you may not have a good knowledge of such a disease, so there must be many questions for you to consult. What stage of IgA Nephropathy are you in? You should make clear such a question, because it is closely related to your prognosis. Now let’s have a question look at the stages of IgA Nephropathy.

CKD stage of IgA Nephropathy

IgA Nephropathy is a kind of chronic kidney disease. And CKD is classified into five stages according to your GFR.

Stage GFR Serum Creatinine Level
Stage 1 GFR≥90ml/min  
Stage 2



Stage 3



Stage 4



Stage 5



A novel classification of IgA Nephropathy
There is another classification of IgA Nephropathy, that is H.S.Lee’s grading system for IgA Nephropathy. According to his theory, IgA Nephropathy is also classified into five grades.

Grade Description

Grade I

normal or focal mesangial cell proliferation

Grade II

diffuse mesangial cell proliferation, or less than 25% of glomeruli with crescent (Cr) segmental sclerosis (SS)/global sclerosis (GS)

Grade III

25-49% of glomeruli with Cr/SS/GS

Grade IV

50-75% of glomeruli with Cr/SS/GS

Grade V

More than 75% of glomeruli with Cr/SS/GS

The prognosis of IgA Nephropathy
Now do you know which stage/grade of IgA Nephropathy you are in? Generally speaking, if you are in the first two stages of IgA Nephropathy, it is possible for you to reverse the disease. But when you are in the Stage 3 or Stage 4, there is only 50 percent possibility for you to cure it. And if in the end stage, it is difficult to cure it and what you should do is to reduce its complications and ensure the quality of life.
