Do All People with IgA Nephritis Develop Kidney Failure

Do All People with IgA Nephritis Develop Kidney FailureAs we all know, IgA Nephritis is the most common form of glomerulonephritis. This disease results from abnormal deposition of IgA immune complexes in the glomeruli. Generally speaking, IgA Nephritis can not be cured. That is to say, it impairs kidney function gradually, leading to kidney function eventually. But do all people with IgA Nephritis develop kidney failure?

Not all people with IgA Nephritis develop kidney failure.

It usually takes over many years for IgA Nephritis to develop to kidney failure. During the course, some people can control their disease very well so that they live a normal life without worrying about kidney failure, while some others develop end stage kidney failure quickly.

Some factors can affect your prognosis, such as persistent hematuria, severe proteinuria, high blood pressure, etc. Besides symptoms, lifestyle also plays an important role in prognosis.

How to prevent IgA Nephritis from developing to kidney failure?

-Control symptoms

When you have the referred symptoms, you should attach importance and bring them under control as early as possible.

-Lead a healthy lifestyle

You had better talk with a dietitian to make a personalized renal-friendly diet plan. Though IgA Nephritis makes you feel tired easily, you should do some exercise regularly to boost immune system. Besides, you should keep you skin clean and prevent it from being infected. And you should also keep a positive attitude to fight against the disease.

-Systemic treatment for IgA Nephropathy

Symptom treatment is not enough. You should regulate the abnormal immune system to reduce the production of IgA immune complexes. You should also remove those deposited immune complexes from the kidneys to cease kidney inflammation. Moreover, you should set up a good blood environment for kidneys to repair themselves and restore their function. Immunotherapy combines western medicine and Chinese medicine and it can help you achieve a better curative effect.
