Does IgA Nephropathy Return to A Transplanted Kidney

Does IgA Nephropathy Return to A Transplanted KidneyDoes IgA Nephropathy return to a transplanted kidney? Some kidney patients can not help having such a concern when they plan to do kidney transplant. Now let’s have a quick look.

IgA Nephropathy has a high recurrence rate after transplant.

For IgA Nephropathy patients, their IgA and IgA receptors are abnormal. When they have infection or cold, their body will produce a lot of antibodies including IgA to combine with the invading bacteria and virus. Because of the abnormal structure of IgA, they may combine with each other. During this course, a lot of immune complexes are produced. They will come into the kidneys with blood circulation. Because IgA receptors in kidneys are abnormal, those immune complexes can not be removed timely, which cause kidney inflammation and over time kidney failure.

Kidney transplant is to put a healthy kidney into your body to replace the damaged one to work. It can not repair the abnormal IgA and IgA receptors. When you have infection and cold, those immune complexes may attack the new kidney again. Besides, the transplanted kidney is not your own, your body will also make massive antibodies to attack it. That is why IgA Nephropathy has a high recurrence rate after transplant. In order to protect that transplanted kidney, you have to take immunosuppressants to inhibit the immune system. When your immune system is low, you run a higher risk of cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, bone disease and some other diseases.

How to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function for IgA Nephropathy patients?

If you still have urine output, it is possible for you to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can block the abnormal immune system, cleanse immune complexes from the blood, increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes and strengthen immune system. After a period of treatment, your damaged kidneys can be repaired to certain extent and then you can avoid transplant and live a normal life.
